    Question Can you run the Homebrew Channel and games/emu/roms from the HDD?

    Title pretty much sums it up. I want to be able to run the HBC and subsequent emulators, games and roms directly from my HDD instead of keeping the SD card in the whole time.

    Sorry if this is a noob question, but just wondering if this is possible.

    Tried searching, but SD, Wii, HDD etc... returned way too many results or were discounted for being too short/common.

    Thanks in advance for replies!

    This question has been asked a few times and while it still sounds like a great idea it just hasn't been implemented yet. We can store roms on the HDD but that's about it right now.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    Hey, thanks a lot for the answer! It's a bummer, but at least I know. How about storing and running from an external HDD, can you do that?:

    Yes we can store games and run them from HDD, both Wii games and emulator roms but not Wiiware and VC yet.

    Once again, thanks for the answers! I just got around 4500 roms for Sega, NES, and SNES and didn't have room to run them all from a 1 GB SD card Good to know!
