Two questions: I have a HDD connected to the Wii, and it stays on all the time (when the yellow light is on on the Wii). When I hold the power button and completely turn the Wii off (red light), the HDD also turns off. My question is, is it ok to leave the HDD on for days at a time? Secondly, should I ever unplug the HDD when the Wii is on?
Also wanted to say that this guide was a great help to me, as was the softmodding guide.
