    Ca USB hub

    I have a soft modded Wii. 3.2U. I have many games that run fine from my external hdd. Trouble is, playing RB, RB@, TBRB, and others, (which are all wireless). I've tried using a regular YSB hub, then I purchased a powered hub, and still no luck. Is there something that I'm missing, or is it just not possible to play those games listed above from my external hdd?

    What are you trying to do anyway? Why do you need a USB hub? You shouldn't really need one as all controllers and such are wireless.
    I don't even think the Wii supports USB hubs.

    I'm trying to use a USB hub so that I can play backed up games from my external hdd. Games such as RockBand, etc.

    You don't need an USB hub for your external HDD, just plug it in in one of the Wii's own USB ports.

    I have on issues using a hub, i have the hard drive plugged staight into the Wii in the port closest to the bottom if it is lying down and not in stand (refference location) and the hub whith happens to be a real cheap one plugged in the other port and into the hub i have the rock band instuments plus a second mic for singing duets, all plug and play with my 3.2U and the configurable loader, so far only 3 games out of 145 on drive work with no problems
