    I have the same drive (500gb) it runs fine on dx2v7 base 56, if it is seen by the wii depends on what cios you are using and what base.

    You need to say what cios's you have!

    I use Seagate and it is fine, compatibility is mainly in the cios / base

    If you have an issue but do not have at least d2x v7 final base 56 - then update your wii's cios, run it from the above cios (usually 249) and see if it works.

    Also try 222 hermes v5 (or 5.1 - or 5.1r) base 38 and try and run it from this cios

    The loader can have small influences so try both gx and cfg.

    Always check if your drive has a sleep function, if it does disable it (usually software from the drive manufacturer)

    If in doubt check the wii usb compatibility list - there are several on the web
