    So i had some trouble with wiiflow not detecting my hdd. That was solved by buying a y-splitter, but now it will detect my hdd, load the list of games, but none will play.

    The HDD light stays on all the time, so it's not loosing power. But it is formatted as NTFS, is that the problem. My HDD has other stuff on it, so if i make a 2nd partition, put all my other stuff on it, then use the 1st partition as FAT32, will that solve my problem? (I have about 500gb worth of steam backups, so that's why i haven't tried it yet, it will be a long process, which i don't want to go through if it wont work.)

    (no need for partitions or for a ntfs format.....) mines a 1.5TB hard drive fat32 NO partitions with its own power adaptor. so if uve set it up correctly (have it marked primary and active) then all should work fine

    You say none of the games will play, but can you give a more descriptive account of what happens? Black screen? Error dump? Back to loader? Back to HBC (if you launched the loader through HBC)? Back to Wii menu?
