So I was going through some problems earlier this week. My laptop wouldn't recognize the external HDD as an HDD, but the Wii would still read it perfectly fine... so I couldn't add anything from my laptop to it. I think the reason was that one of the pins in the case was loose and now it won't be read at all anymore in that case. Anyhow, put the HDD in a new case and my laptop had no problem recognizing it. But now a new problem arose, which is that the Wii won't start up properly if I have it plugged it. It'll automatically go to the Priiloader menu (I think, the white screen with some options) or it will crash at the warning screen that appears when you start the console up. The Wii starts up just fine if I have it unplugged. If I plug it in later, USB loaders will give an error. What do you guys think I could do to solve this problem? Would reformatting the HDD help? It's currently WBFS, but I suppose it would be a good chance to finally start using FAT32 (used the thing since the start of USB loading days). Or is it just the case that's causing the problem?
