    Upgrading the Hard Drive:

    I recently soft moded my wii with HBC via twilight hack. Just got this Wii and I have two questions about the hard drive.

    1. Just how big(or should I say small) is the hard drive in it? I put like 5 or 6 Wii Ware on it and now it says system memory is full....ALREADY?!?!

    2. Can you replace the hard drive with one, like maybe a laptop hard drive?

    nintendo doesn't have a "hard drive" like the Xbox and PS3

    only hard drive I have seen was from that thread that talked about the Wii in hospitals that seems to load games from an external hard drive

    I am sure nintendo could implent an external hard drive for everyone, but I doubt it, they will probably just use SD cards more instead

    like i said, they announced they would allow people to boot stuff like VC off memory cards, so they can buy more games, the added SD stuff, is proof of that
