Usb loading vs disc?

I'm having a bit of a rant at the moment as there is so many having issues with disc loading, especially with some of the newer games coming out. Now I don't know about everywhere else but here in Liverpool a 500GB HD that is compatible with wii can be obtained brand new for a little under £60! Thats about 200 to 250 games the equivalent price in disc must be around about £50. Now to get to the point, thats an extra cost of £10 give or take, and at least 75% more trouble! U load the game on to the HD and 9 times out of 10 your done, but via disc well u can burn 2 or 3 copies or even more of the same game before u even realise what the problem is, so my rant is this - its a no brainer noobs, as far as i'm concerned buy a bloody Hd and leave almost all your problems behind you!

    This happens everytime a new game comes out that needs a workaround. All these disk users comeout of the woodwork. That tells me one thing, for the most part they are just hit and runners. Most ppl that keep an eye on the wiihacking scene have moved on to usb devices or can follow directions enough to get the disks to run the games without issue. Either way they are stubborn and often say things like "Ican't do it" so I ignore the whole thread of them lol

    I just started my usb gaming a couple weeks ago; it's freaking awesome! When I was still playing via disc, I rarely ran into issues. When I did, a little searching in the forum usually corrected my problems. One thing that irks me however, is when folks refer to the hard disk drive as a HD! It's not high def! Not calling you out OP, I just see it a lot here

    Usb is the way to go, unless you can afford a WODE ! The last time I even loaded a disc was to extract the files needed for Reggie, and then I put it in backwards and thought, "Now what's wrong with this machine?" LOL

    Its not always the burn that fails, most of the time its the software and I've got 2 modcips and every disc I've ever burnt (all at 8x) have worked without a hitch so don't assume your burning process failed just because the software can't load the disc.

    Had many probs loading games from disc.Games loaded too fast.(5 seconds)
    Disc images stayed after deleting the game(which l think caused my probs).
    Every game loaded from pc to ext hd had no probs.
    Using wd passport-500gb-37 games-over 400 gb left-whew!
    System stable now.Games run very quickly AND smoothly.

    I love usb cause Im lazy and hate getting up to change games and all these fancy loaders with box covers and all makes it even more attractive. The only time I use disk is when I get these protected games that don't work with usb, which sucks.

    I use a WD My Book 1TB ($89.99 @ best buy) My son is 7 and navigates his 40 or so games and endless WADs perfectly. When installation is done right (thanks to wiihacks guides) it is virtually fool-proof<::>
