    hello I was wondering what usb HDD to get any one know for there experience of modding the wii what one to get. I know SDD are very expensive at the moment so i am going for a HDD. I am looking for a 2tb one so i can put a lot on it. but im sure other people are wondering about this i did look at a list of compatibility and a lot of them were out of production so i would like a answer from some one on here who knows what to get.

    If you connect the hard drive to the usb port, it will work just like a super high capacity usb. So everything that works with usb will work with the hard drive.

    But for HDD vs SDD, I would recommend an SDD. SDDs are more power efficient because they do not have any moving components. And any samsung SDD would work well as long as you are connecting it through usb.

    And Happy New Year!

    HDDs may be a touch slow for playing Wii games, some may not work quite right. As for max capacity, that would be 2tb since fat 32 supports partitions up to that size, and the Wii can only read the first partition of a drive.

    hey cheese i like the t shirt
    so you can use nearly any usb HDD as long as it is 2tb or below because or ms fat32 that the wii supports
    but i know i would love a SSD

    my plan is to get one some day when they come down in price the very pricey.. i will get one tho and transfer all the stuff whats on the HDD to the SDD. probably by that time the HDD would be Nackerd hopefully not with a load of saves on it...
