Size: 2.0 TB
Brand: IOMEGA 34926 PRESTIGE
Format : WBFS & FAT32
Firmware: CIOS 222 & 249
My advice if you want a hard drive that works consistently, you need to buy one that is powered by an a/c plug. I picked this one up on ebay for $100 new. BTW since this HDD is 2 TB you will need two partitions 1 TB each...use EASEUS and WiiBackup both are free!

I got an Seagate st315005 41AS 1.5TB working. But when I connect it to my Wii the screen starts flickering insanely. The case-unit (hdd envelope) is:
100-240V ~50/60 Hz 0.5A

This isnt the place for questions but it could be bad component cables or composite cables. The shielding could be crap.
