    Can I use a 1t external hard drive to store games on?

    Hi,

    I recently softmodded and downloaded the Homebrew channel on my Wii. I havent tried any games yet, but I am downloading a few atm in wbfs format. I found a guide, and it told me to create a folder in the root of my SD card and call it wbfs, and then put the games inside. Then use CGF USB loader to open... Anyway, I dont have enough space on my homebrew SD card, and I am planning to download kind of many games. I found a 1t USB external hard drive that I am not using, and my question is if I can format it, make a folder called wbfs, and put my games inside there instead, or if there will be a sort of error either because the wii doesn't recognize usb drives that big, or idk..

    You should register with our site if you're keen on getting assistance. I'm also hoping "download" is meant as ripping from your original/retail media, and not a "T0rr3ntz R K00l" thing (read the site rules).
