USB Loader Question
ok i just found out about the USB loader, and i have a couple of questions.
I once modded a old xbox 1st gen and i would rip the games directly from the xbox drive to my internal hard drive.
My question is this can this be done with the Wii place a game into the wii cd drive and rip it directly onto the External USB drive?
also if anyone out there has some suggestion as to what would be a good high capacity drive to purchase cheap that has little to no issues with the usb loader.
Yes, you can dump wii games onto the hdd from the wii drive. I'm not which loaders do it, but I am sure that you can.
To find a hard drive, I suggest you check out this page: USB Devices Compatibility List - WikiTemp
I havent done this yet myself, but when I do, I think I will get a 500GB Buffalo Drivestation, but don't be influenced by my decision. Its completely your preference, but try to avoid ones that use a device manager, like a WD Passport. I understand that these can get in the way and cause compatability problems.
You can rip to a hard drive. The selection that says "Install Game" does just that. Hard Drives are hit and miss though. USB flash drives are usually more compatible, but have less storage.
