i believe its just plug and play all you do is connect the hdd and provide power to the hdd then switch on your gamecube and launch swiss

what version of swiss are you using for testing?


first you need to validate the IDE-EXI you got works...i recommend you do the following:
disconnect the adapter and sata hdd....put em away for now
get an IDE HDD and try that first

if you have any browser contents in showing in swiss under IDE-EXI, then you have validated 3 things:
1. the version of swiss you are using is working properly to display file browser contents
2. the IDE-EXI device works
3. the HDD works and is formatted properly



once you meet these three criteria, then you can swap out the IDE HDD or SATA HDD
