    Question Need recomandation for HDD working good with NeoGamma

    I need a good advice on buying an USB HDD for working with NeoGamma RC7 Rev13B.

    is Western Digital good enough? how about seagate? i really need someone to give me advice if WD is better then SG or the other way around, is it imporatnt to get USB 2 HDD? do i need to get an Extrernal HDD with power supply? or USB port is just enough?

    Your best bet would be a Western Digital. Some folks have gotten the Seagates to work; but most of the time Seagate HDDs are not very amenable to hacking uses including the AppleTV and Wii. In contrast, the WD HDD, either the Passport or the externally powered models, generally give the least amount of trouble to Wii users.

    Good luck with your choice.

    500GB WD, white and silver works well and looks good next to the Wii.

    Hi guys, ive searched for a bunch of HDD stuff.. and the best one i want is "Western Digital 320 GB My Passport Essential"
    but i dont know if its comptiable with Rev13B/A in Neogamma.

    If in USB Devices Compatibility List - WikiTemp it says its comptiable with GX loader, it says its supports NeoGamma aswell?

    NeoGamma can and does load games from the USB but the menu is just clunkier. It's even worse if you have a lot of games on the HDD-the USB Loader GX allows rapid scrolling through the list of games while NeoGamma has a name by name punch the button feel.

    No problem with having several loaders on your Wii and just trying them out or using them for a game specific issue. I have 2 USB Loaders and NeoGamma without a problem. I just found that cIOS38rev14 and USB Loader GX worked really well. Oh, and yes, both NeoGamma and Rev13 and 13b worked fine with several WD models.

    Hi people, ive just orderd "Western Digital 320 GB My Passport Essential", a Blue one

    I know its not the best, but I couldn't afford the 500gb, so im happy with my order ^^

    Ive got another question off topic, cus i won't open a new thread just for it.

    Does HD cable for the wii worth 25$? i really want one.
    I know the wii graphics won't improve, but atleast the blury will be gone.

    what do you think?

    Not sure what you mean by "not the best"; the WD 320GB MY Passport is an excellent drive [Tealc uses it-look at his sig:-)] and will serve you well. When you rip 4.3GB ISOs to the HDD, the extraneous material is removed with games averaging a little under 2GB. You have room for many games. If it meets your needs, including financial ones-it's the best for you.

    As for the HD graphics, if you are seeing a blurring effect check the signal shielding of your setup. Move things around, if you are using something nearby with cheap cabling-replace that. A cheap way to shield some devices is to re-use that special electrostatic/shielding plastic bag in which some computer and some electronics devices are sent.
