    Can I use a computer HD

    Hello all. I have a 320gb computer harddrive. I also have a USB to IDE/sata transfer cable and power source. Would there be any reason I couldn't use this in place of a USB flash drive on my soft modded Wii?

    320GB is best for Wii games in wbfs format. Holds about 100 games.

    My 500gb is WBFS, but current thinking is more FAT32 (either is fine). I think it more an issue of this guy's... creativity (read: desperation) in asking if it is physically possible (compatibility-wise), lol

    Thanks for all the replies. I love the pizza box pic. I am actually putting the Hd in an empty xbox360 shell, not much better. Lol!

    I got a USB serial to ATA Bridge box from my local computer parts store [about $12 from memory), added an old laptop HDD, and have had no problems at all
