    This is really pissing me off. This new update for WiiMC for some reason no longer recognizes my HDD. The older ones do but this new update won't. I have a USB drive that is recognized but not my 250 gig HDD. I don't understand why. I'm going though my HDD now to see if maybe there are files causing this but I don't know. I'm just trying to watch some movies. This makes me angry

    had this problem when the 1.0.9 was released. most simple fix that i did and made my hard drive visable is going into the meta.xml and the 2nd from the last line that sez "" delete it and your usb hard drive should work (it's kinda odd i know i have to load from the system menu to the HBC to wiimc and it works fine.

    Thanks. Unfortunately deleting still didn't make my HDD show up. So which version of WiiMC does not have this problem cause so far I went back to 1.0.8 and 1.0.7 and still have the same problems.

    This suxxx because I watch both what's on my HDD and the online media. So if I want to see what's been updated online I have to update and if I want to watch what's on my HDD I have to downgrade.

    I know that my HDD is formatted to..I forget what it's called the old settings barely used by computers today not NTFS or whatever it's called. I can't format it to NTFS because I'd lose everything in my HDD and I have nowhere to back it up.

    Thnx I'll try that out. I got the older version working but if that works it would be great.

    Honestly I don't even play video games anymore. Since I've discovered WiiMC I've been watching the online media. This is one highly versatile application.
