    what do you meet by the power consumption requirement.?
    new to HDD for the wii i was just going to take it to the shop and ask then for the right case
    or do i have to find out the right power consumption requirement to connect the HDD to the Wii.?

    thanks for your help

    taking the 160GB sata to the shop would be the best option to match the right usb-case.
    u could check out the power consumption req of the hdd on it's label;
    be noted that one usb port is typically used for +5v, 500ma; as specified the same on Wii application.
