Any help on this one?

Just recently re-modded my Wii with help from this site and all went well.

The issue I have is my old external hard drive with its external psu always worked fine so I thought I would take a simpler step and used a laptop external hard drive which is self powered.

Formatted it for WBFS and copied from the old drive to the new drive (painstaking with 108 discs on it!) and all went well. The only problem is when going into usb loader to read the games it doesn't detect it but if I unplug the usb lead and plug it back in it detects it and away we go, this happens pretty much all the time even if I go to the Wii menu and go back into usb loader, so I have to unplug and plug back in the usb every time so usb loader picks it up. It should be noted I am using port '0' that usb loader suggest when searching for it.

Any ideas would be gratefully received.
