    I can not confirm this working everytime I load a game using USBLoader (IOS 222 and 249) Wiiflow (IOS 222 and 249) it goes to a black screen and sends me to the wii system menu. If someone else has had this issue and got it working I would appreciate any info. untill then I confirm this as not compatible

    Hi all. I may be a bit late posting here, but you can most definitely use "ANY" hard drive to hold and play off of any game for the Nintendo Wii. I work for a computer company ( I will keep this anonymous ) and I have tested just about all kinds of hard disk drives to make sure they are properly working. As far as I know a hard drive is just a storage device so any system should be able to make use of them. So far I've tested all known laptop and desktop drives on a wii no matter the system they come from (using WiiFlow and USBLoader GX) from 5 gigabytes to 100 terrabytes. Every one that was working worked out just fine except for the Wii not being able to keep up with the fastest drive speeds, still all games work fine. I have three Nintendo Wiis, two white and one black, and all three use different hard drives of varying sizes. The one my niece uses is a seagate 60 gb, mine are philips 1 tb on one and 500 gb on the other. The only thing about my nieces is it uses an internal seagate barracuda. I have it hooked up through a Sata/IDE adapter that feeds the drive 12volts. It also converts the Sata output to mini usb. So as I stated ALL drives should work on a Nintendo Wii, even those from Mac computers. It's your fault if you can't get them to work.

    Not quite. All 512B sector drives should work. There are however issues which I have highlighted with 4kB sector drives. If you look at the source code, you'll see why. The issue I had is that one particular drive manufacturer changed from one to the other during production, but kept the same model number! For this reason, I believe that there is still value in people listing their experiences.

    Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex

    Size: Medium
    Brand: Seagate
    Model: FreeAgent GoFlex (STAB320500...i think)
    Enclosure: ???
    Format: NTFS (151 GB) + WBFS (146 GB)
    Firmware/Softmod: 4.1U (ios 249 and ios 224 with ios 57 base)
    Loader: USB Loader GX/ULoader/WiiFlow
    Working/Not Working: At the beginning, had some issues with adding games (drive would go back to NTFS after adding a game). Formatted on a different computer, and now it works on every computer and my Wii.

    Looks like this, but silver.

    Ca LaCie Rikiki 500GB OK !

    This one works perfectly :

    LaCie - LaCie Rikiki

    LaCie Rikiki 500GB
    UPC : 093053799359

    Did my ultimate test with it, loaded Mario Kart and did a Grand Prix, stayed on PAUSE 15 minutes between two races, and if doesn't freeze, it passes my test !

    I tried before with a Western Digital 2.5" BLUE 500GB in a NexStar SX cases (by Vantec)...and there's no way to disable the "SLEEP MODE" on it....so it freezes when I do the exact same thing.

    (Sorry for my english if you can't understand everything....)

    NO PROBLEM with the LaCie Rikiki !!!

    Thermaltake BlacX Dock

    I am using a dock enclosure with a 2.5" HDD. The enclosure being used is the more important thing here as most HDDs should work.

    Size: 200 GB (Dock supports up to 2 TB)
    Brand: Toshiba (Dock: Thermaltake)
    Model: Not sure of the model of the actual HDD because I just grabbed it from an old laptop, but as previously stated most HDDs up to 2 TB should work fine.
    Enclosure: Thermaltake BlacX Dock 2.5"/3.5" eSata & USB
    Format: FAT32
    Firmware: 4.1U
    Loader: CFG USB Loader
    Working

    ADDED CILE...put it separate in a new spoiler
