Wii USB Devices Compatibility List

Anyone is free to edit this list though you must create an account first. Vandals will be banned and their IP blocked from further edits.

PLEASE READ ME (Guidelines)


1. If you are the first person to add a Device, then the confirmed column should read 0 (as it is unconfirmed). Every person should then add 1 to that when they have verified that outcome. 2. Keep it to English! Most people at GBATemp have decent English, if you can't say something in English, then write it down in whatever language you speak and hopefully someone will translate it for you. 3. Try to fill out as much as you can. 4. Hugely important would be adding a link to the drive and where you bought it. Naming has been a little vague, lets be precise. Drives can differ from batch to batch. If the shop you purchased it from can't be found online, please find the manufacturers web page for that EXACT drive version. 5. If you are running the game using a card reader (SD, Memory Stick, CF, etc), list the READER, NOT THE CARD; USB cardreaders are bridge-like in that any card will work with a working reader. Similarly, if using an enclosure that wasn't sold at retail with your hard drive already in it, list the ENCLOSURE, NOT the drive itself.

How to test
Finding your device's USB ID: Every USB device ever made has its own unique Vendor ID and Product ID, two four-digit hexadecimal numbers that together identify a particular model made by a particular company. If you have a device's Vendor ID and Product ID you can say with confidence whether any two given USB devices are the same model or not. Windows: Plug the device into your computer. Wait for Windows to initialize the device, if necessary. Open Device Manager, open the "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" group, right click on "USB Mass Storage Device", select the "Details" tab, then select "Hardware Ids" from the Property drop-down box. In the big box beneath that there will be one or more lines starting with something like this:
USB\VEN_05E3&DEV_0715

In this case, the Vendor ID is 05E3 and the Product ID is 0715. If there is more than one "USB Mass Storage Device" listed, unplug any USB device plugged into the system, or failing that, try a different computer. Some computers have built-in cardreaders attached to the USB bus, which can confuse the process. Linux: Plug the device into your computer, wait about 8 seconds (to be safe), then: $ less /proc/bus/usb/devices For every USB device in your system (including your root hubs!) there is an entry in this pseudo-file that looks something like this: (the Vendor ID and Product ID are in bold)
T: D: P: S: S: S: C:* I:* E: E: Bus=01 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=04 Cnt=01 Dev#= 15 Spd=480 MxCh= 0 Ver= 2.00 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS=64 #Cfgs= 1 Vendor=05e3 ProdID=0715 Rev=94.07 Manufacturer=Genesys Product=USB Reader SerialNumber=000000009407 #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=80 MxPwr=500mA If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 2 Cls=08(stor.) Sub=06 Prot=50 Driver=usb-storage Ad=81(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 512 Ivl=0ms Ad=02(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 512 Ivl=0ms

Note "Driver=usb-storage". This tells you the device is claimed by the usb-storage driver, and is therefore a USB storage device. Obviously, if usb-storage isn't loaded that won't be there; make sure it's loaded! If there is more than one such block listed, again, unplug other devices from the system, or failing that, try a different computer. Note that you will have to close and re-open the file to see any changes. Another way to do this in linux: $ lsusb
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 0951:1603 Kingston Technology Data Traveler 1GB/2GB Pen Drive

The first number is Vendor ID and the second Product ID Mac: Insert the USB device into your Mac. Wait about 8-10 seconds, to make sure it's detected, and start System Profiler. On the left hand column, under the Hardware heading, find USB. On the top right pane, find and click on the device you are checking (check under the names USB Reader, Mass Storage Device, Generic Storage, Volume, etc.), and more information should appear to the bottom of this pane (now the bottom right). In this area, search for the following information:
USB Reader: Capacity: 1.88 GB Removable Media: Yes Detachable Drive: Yes BSD Name: disk3 Product ID: 0x0715 Vendor ID: 0x05e3 (Genesys Logic, Inc.)

Version: 94.07 Serial Number: 000000009407 Speed: Up to 480 Mb/sec

GeeXboX: 1. Check if Device is formated as FAT, FAT32 or NTFS 2. Make a Backup. There's a very small Chance that the Stick will get corrupted. 3. Load GeeXboX 4. Plug your Device in 5. See if it shows directories. Non-Linux based Homebrew: 1. Grab your USB-Device 2. Check if it's formated as FAT/FAT32, Windows XP doesn't let you format big drives (AFIAK over 40GB) as FAT32, you need to use FAT32Format or a Linux live CD/DVD or a GParted Live CD/DVD. 3. Make a Backup. There's a very small Chance that the Stick will get corrupted. 4. Go to HBC, plug your Device in. 5. Load USB mass storage device tester USB Loader 1. Create a WBFS partition on the device, and load a game that is [USB Loader v1.x Game Compatibility|known to work]] onto the device. 2. Connect the device before turning your Wii on, to be safe. Enable any relevant "Disk mode", "USB storage mode" etc. beforehand. 3. Boot the game you recorded earlier. 4. Play the game for at least one hour before reporting back. Many devices appear to work at first, but have crippling stability issues.

If Problems occur: 1. Try to plug the Device at the other USB-Port. 2. Try to plug the Device in before entering/in Homebrewchannel. Then load App. 3.Try to plug in the Device and then power on Wii. If the Device does not work 1. Try to find a spare Device that will show up. 2. Use this to boot the loader. 3. Once you have the "No partition found" screen, switch to the original Device. 4. Press A. Hopefully, the device will show up on the screen to be formatted. 5. If it works, on following loads, you will still need to swap. Instead of formatting every time, press A, then B to go back. If the Device automatically spins down due to inactivity Some drives are configured from the factory to automatically spindown after a set number of minutes of inactivity, which could cause issues. Configuration software is usually available to configure such devices to disable this feature.

For Seagate FreeAgent drives download software here.

Compatibility Legend Works: the Device works without any problems. Issues: the Device has some small problems, like sudden shutdown or something like that. Please note that if you have to plug the Device in at a certain Time is NOT a problem. Doesn't Work: the Device doesn't work. Not Tested: the Device was not tested in that category.

When used with other loaders you may experience a code dump when formatting or installing. The solution is to format and install at least one game through a PC first, then it's smooth sailing. Runs games perfectly with USB Loader GX, however you cannot use it to format WBFS partition. WBFS partition must be created with WBFS Manager v3. Does NOT work with WBFS Intelligent at all. Nice performance using cIOS rev15 and Cfg Loader. Also works good as WBFS partition, using WBFSSync.

The USB-Drive works good under Vista, games can be put onto the harddrive using WBFS without problems about 152 games fit on the drive, however USB-Loader v1.1 does not recognize the USB-Drive (tryed as NTFS and as Fat32), after testing i found out that if i open the USB-Drive casing, take the harddrive out and then connect the hardrive to the wii using a simple 3rd party IDEto-USB converter USB-Loader v1.1 does recognize the USB-Drive and games are selectable and playable. I guess the USB-Loader v1.1 is not compatible with the chipset of Maxtors IDE-toNot USB converter. Follow the link for a picture of the Works Issues Tested Maxtor working with a 3rd party IDE-to-USB converter, [digital8] http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/2666/dsc03243 b.jpg. EDIT1.: Homebrew does work on the Maxtor One Toutch, no need for the 3rd party IDE-2-USB converter there. EDIT2.: Tested with USB-Loader v1.1 till v1.5. EDIT3.: With Waninkoko's cIOS38Rev12 the drive does work as long as you first boot the USB Loader (Till the No USB Drive found message) and then power up the USB Drive (Un\Replugging the USB cable has no effect). Everytime you exit from the USB Loader you have to repeat the procedure. I used EASEUS to make a 100GB partition. In my case I had to make sure it was the primary drive Not and of course choose no format. Then use WBFS Not Tested Works Tested Manager for the rest. Loaded it with USB Loader 1.5. GX didn't pick up that it was plugged in, but I can't confirm it won't work for everyone.

Very good speeds. picked up any loader i tried straight away played blazing angels for a few hours no spindown at all however sometimes it goes asleep in the loader if your not scrolling through games! Works perfectly, will go into detail after more testing. USB loader detects and formats (100Gb for Wii) very good !
