    Question Which USB HDD is proper for my Wii??

    My Wii's Chip Information:

    Serial number: LEH500482177
    The Wii has a RVL-001(EUR) model number and is produced for the European market. The copyright year is 2006.

    Your drive most likely has the following chipset:

    • There is a 50% chance the chipset is GC2-D3-2 (v2) with no drive chip.
    • And there is also a 50% chance the chipset is Combined GC2-D3 with no drive chip.

    Compatible Wii modchips/kits:

    • DriveKey - D2A, DMS, D2B, D2C, D2C2, D2E, D3
    • FlatMod - D2A, DMS, D2B, D2C, D2C2, D2E, D3
    • FlatMii - D2A, DMS, D2B, D2C, D2C2, D2E, D3, D3-2
    • Wasabi DX - D2A, DMS, D2B, D2C, D2C2, D2E, D3
    • WODE Jukebox - D2A, DMS, D2B, D2C, D2C2, D2E, D3, D3-2
    • SunDriver - D2A, DMS, D2B, D2C, D2C2, D2E, D3, D3-2
    • Wiikey Fusion - D2A, DMS, D2B, D2C, D2C2, D2E, D3, D3-2, D4
    • Replace with old DVD-drive model - D3-2, D4

    So, Which external Harddisk should i buy?

    I have already softmoded my Wii with the Guide : http://www.wiihacks.com/wiihacks-new...questions.html

    There is a USB Compatibility List, I understand it BUT;

    For Example: in this List

    AData:
    - Adata Thumb Drive 8GB - Working

    So what does this "Working" here mean? Working on what? working on which Wii Chip?

    We keep a thread going. Ppl are supposed to use it to report how well a usb storage device is working with their wii console and depending upon the set-up, the model number of the device, and the experience of the user, the results may vary. this list helps to provide other members in the community with that information.
    For example, The usb device may work perfectly well, when it is completely formatted to wbfs and used to play game backups, but it may not work as well when a fat32 partition as added as well. It could be because the hardware doesn't work well, when used this way, or it could be that the user didn't set it up properly, or it could just be the type of apps/programs that are trying to access it.

    Look through the thread at ppls results.
    Take into consideration their experience (post count, number of times thanked).
    Decide if what you are gonna do with the drive, sounds like it worked well for more than 1 or 2 individuals.
    Look online at the prices for the device to see if it fits into your budget or seems reasonable.
    Make a decision based on this infoormation.

    I would say personally that most ppl have the least issues with western digital harddrives and they are reasonably priced.

    Thank you for all.
