    USB Loader GX HDD Question

    I am modding a Wii that's disc drive will no longer spin. I am wanting to unplug my HDD from my modded Wii and plug it into the Wii I am working on to see if my Mod was completely successfull. Is it ok to switch HDD's back and forth? I know I will have to download covers and such but I just wanted to make sure it would not change any setting before I did it.

    Yeah switching from one wii to another is fine.
    My hd is a 1tb and half is wbfs and half is nfts, I have an extension cable running from back of hd which is situated at my pc to back of wii, when I want to use wii I just unplugd from pc and plug it into the extension lead. Sorted.

    Not all USB leads are created equal. Some will be sucky USB 1.1 and won't carry the faster USB2 signal very well.

    Buy a decent quality lead, one that at least says it is USB2
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
