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.

For ease of use finding you VendorID and ProductID numbers in Windows, you can download USBDeview at http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/usb_devices_view.html and check the corresponding columns at the programs listing.

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:  Bus=01 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=04 Cnt=01 Dev#= 15 Spd=480 MxCh= 0
D:  Ver= 2.00 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS=64 #Cfgs=  1
P:  Vendor=05e3 ProdID=0715 Rev=94.07
S:  Manufacturer=Genesys
S:  Product=USB Reader
S:  SerialNumber=000000009407
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=80 MxPwr=500mA
I:* If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 2 Cls=08(stor.) Sub=06 Prot=50 Driver=usb-storage
E:  Ad=81(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 512 Ivl=0ms
E:  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, NTFS or FAT32 partition on the device, and load a game that is 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.


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.

Maxtor One Toutch 3,5" 300GB Works Not Tested Issues 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 IDE-to-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-to-USB converter. Follow the link for a picture of the Maxtor working with a 3rd party IDE-to-USB converter, [digital8] http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/2666/dsc03243b.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).

I now use a forwarder to launch it rather than running it through the Homebrew Channel or using memory having a seperate channel. Very pleased as games load noticeably faster with this version of USBLoader GX. Update - installed Hermes CiOS 222 as USB devices wanted to use the same USB port as the Hard Drive - in USBLoader GX change options for that game to use CiOS 222 instead of Cios 250 and no problems 3

Only way I have managed to get this drive to work is using old r883.. Wont work with Uloader or CFG loader. Comment: No love either with FAT formatted drive and CFG Loader on Hermes cIOS 222 5.1, however FAT formatted drive and CFG Loader on Waninkoko cIOS 249 r20 does work. FAT formatted drive and WiiMC on IOS58 also works.


No success with this drive, my first attempt at softmodding however another drive has worked confirming this one doesn't. Don't have any experience in trying other settings to see if there is a way to get it working.

Iomega 1TB Prestige Desktop Hard Drive USB 2.0 059B:0370 Not Tested Not Tested Works Works perfectly with rev14. Every USB Loader tried works instantly. ~~ For me I have to turn the drive on after the wii is turned on before I can use USB loader GX but other than that it works perfectly (so far). 3 Games loaded in under an hour. You also have to make 2 partitions on the drive because the max size for wii is 500GB. - - Also for me works perfect, I made a partition of about 100gb, have to power it up AFTER the wii goes on. Works like a charm! Vistitua Works perfectly for me aswell. Partition 500/500. Doesn't matter what's turned on first, works with all usbloaders I've tested. Enjoy!! SoulSnatcher - I purchased this HDD and it works perfectly with NeoGamma R9, uLoader and USB Loader GX. I didn't have the problem mentioned above about bootup of the HDD. Overall, great HDD. I recommend a purchase.--- Underblaze: I have the newer model of this Iomega 1TB Prestige Desktop Hard drive model "31871900" bought in amazon and it WORKS PERFECTLY with wiiflow, configurable usb loader, neogamma, usb LOADER GX and uloader, Cios rev20, didnt have the problem about bootup, fast HDD, Buy it--Purchased this drive after reading compatibility here & am VERY happy. Inexpensive & Works great! Backed-up 5 discs into drive in approx 25mins. Partitioned 500gbWBFS/500gbNTFS. No turn on order, works either way with ALL loaders. Also works perfectly with Mplayer for movies (added to WBFS partition with Wii Backup Manager). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! 2

Works perfectly with WiiFlow 1.1, Neogamma R7, System Menu 4.2u. Works right out of the box even though it is formated to NTFS it loads games at amazing speeds. Use WBFS Manager 3.0 and it will work perfectly. The good thing is, this hard drive turns OFF when your Wii turns OFF which is like the 2.5" Hard Drives. Really cheap, good quality, looks nice, highly recommended! SAMSUNG DRIVE INSIDE.

Seagate Expansion 1TB USB Desktop External Hard Drive 0BC2:3300 Works Not Tested Works Registered Drive first with Seagate. WBFS Manager on Windows x64 couldn't format (not sure about x86, didn't try with USB Loader), ran Ubuntu LiveCD (x86) and installed Linux WBFS Manager. Formatted to Fat32 first, then WBFS. Once formatted, WBFS Manager on Windows worked for copying games. Works with Configurable USB Loader as a single 1TB partition for installing games. It will turn off when the Wii is off as well, so no need to unplug the power supply. The drive goes into sleep mode after a short while of non-use, causing some emulators to lose save data or crash. Seagate Drive Settings has an option to remove the sleep mode. 1

I Am Using USBLoader CFG v.40 Instead Of USBLoader. Also Have cIOS Rev. 14 Installed.

Separate confirmation: Worked in USBLoaderCFG v.50fat using wbfs_file v2.8 by oggzee after formatting 3 partitions as fat32 with fat32format , works beautifully


I have an old style WD My Book Essential External 2TB Hard Drive MDL:WD20000H1U-00 all set as a fat32 partition (No 500 game limit this way, like wbfs and it can be read without any special software on any computer). Everything I have tried to use on the Wii with it works 100%. USB Loader GX and USBLoader CFG, every emulator that supports usb, triiforce, Mplayer, Wii Earth.... well actually anything that i have found that is supposed to work from a usb drive works on this drive! The new model that replaces this drive can be made to work with the Wii too, but it is not as good and takes some playing with. The easy way to tell the two apart is the old style just has 2 blue lights on front and the new ones have an actual fullness gauge. So if you can find the old style or atleast the old style case and buy a 2TB WD internal drive to put into it. I will tell you it will work with everything for the Wii 100%. The new style I can't guarantee because I dont know your skill level. But it can be done.


Works . Have 3 Partions . 1. Fat 32 2. WBFS 3. Wbfs Using Usb Loader cfg 222 mload (latest) Works for everything except Triiforce usb . Occasionally not seen by homebrew but after mounting with Usb loader cfg no issues . Using Wii System 4.2 Purchased here


Do not use the USB 3.0 version, this fails. It quickly becomes unstable, games freeze/crash, apps freeze/crash. I solved the problem by getting a supported drive, but I could not get the USB 3.0 version to work with Wii (this system seems to have the same internals as the USB 3.0 Seagate drive below based on labels and components).

Vantec Nexstar 3i NST-360S2i-WH Not Tested Not Tested Doesn't Work Tested with WD 1Tb Green Drive which works 100% fine in another Nexstar enclosure. This enclosure has built in Power Save functions that are not Wii compatible and can't be switched off. After 3 seconds drive goes into idle mode from which the Wii cannot wake. I tied contacting Vantec about hardware workaround (i.e jumper wire on relevant IC) because the power save function can be kept off with windows software/driver. There response was can't be done which is bulls&%t... no more Vantec for this puppy. I bought this enclosure because it is glossy white like the Wii console but it is in fact about as incompatible as you can get. 0

3.5" HDD External Case - SATA (Initio Corporation) "PI-202US SATA/USB20 Drive" firmware 8.67 13FD 1640 Not Tested Not Tested Issues Tested with Samsung HD403LJ 400Gb 3.5" SATA 7200rpm, 16M, using USB loader GX Revision ?. (drive partitioned as 200Gb WBFS and 200GBFAT. only used the wbfs) ISSUES: if you exit the game and go back to usbloader GX, then it freezes while opening the second time with "waiting for USB device". So I'm now rebooting the device everytime i reboot the wii. Also, as expected, it's way slower then using a modern flash memory, but you will only notice that during the game loads. More serious, while playing DOD multiplayer for a long time, the screen would just turn black. you will not respaw, just be able to access the menus and change weapons. it happens randomly. never happened with a usb stick. 1
