    need usb drive advise

    hi wiihacks, thought i'd also like to take this opportunity to say hi since i'm new to the community... oo that rhymed. Anyways, i'm tired or burning dvds so i want to get into the usb loader thing. i have a 160 gb sata hard drive i'm not using and i was wondering if i could get an external enclosure for it to plug into the wii? and if yes, is there a certain brand i should look into? i see this being my cheapest option because there some cheap enclosures on newegg. if not any recomondations of usb harddrives/flash drives? wife wont let me spend much since i just got my wii lol, and i even got her wiifit lol. anyways, thx.

    Seems that results are a little hit and miss with enclosures rather than a ready made external solution, possibly because there are hundreds of them around.

    You could check this compatiblity list and see if it helps you track down a working enclosure.

    You should be able to get quite a few games on that 30GB iPod if it works for you.
