    If you are currently using the USB HDD for the Wii, you will need to create another partition on the HDD. You will also need to install DVDx and MPLayer CE.

    I installed mplayerax and yes it showed up as a channel fine and it plays films etc from sd card and discs but keeps crashing when I try to load from a external harddrive, any ideas or is it the player itself? thanks
