Hi, can anyone give me a list of compatible external HDD drives?
I tried this with a Buffalo Ministation 300gb drive and it doesn't seem to be compatible. Guess I'll try to find a cheap enclosure and swith the hdd into it and see if i can get it working.
hey can anybody help me with this problem please? ok so my usb loader gx works fine AT FIRST! it only works for for like 3 to 5 minutes! i load a game like wii sports i end up playing for like 3 minutes then the game freezes! can someone help me with this problem please??!! =(
I have a Wii with Divekey installed but thanks to NSMB I also began getting into softmoding my Wii.
Now I am very interested in using a USB HDD and need help to make the right choice with the HDD selection.
I have read the compatibility list and I am contemplating to get the Western Digital My Book Essential Edition 2.0 1 TB External hard drive Model No. WDH1U10000.
I am choosing it because, (a) I can buy a Recertified unit for only $95.00, (b) it is 1TB and (c) it seems Western Digital is the way to go here.
1) Does anyone have experience with this drive? Is it recommended?
2) Also, when I shop it around the model number comes up as WDH1U10000N (Note the extera letter N at the end!!!). Is this the same drive?
Thanks in advance.

*first post* wooo ;x
Absolutely stunningly simple instructions. Thanks so much for your help
I was just wondering about this
I have another HDD that is formatted to NTFS with my movies and music and such on it, but when plugged into my Wii, MPlayer will not recognize it. So I am assuming that the Wii does not recognize NTFS formatted HDD. But when I plug in a USB memory stick FAT32 format with movies on it, MPlayer recognizes it. Just wondering if anybody else has a problem with Wii reading NTFS formated HDD. If this is the case then perhaps that part of the tutorial needs to read -Homebrew apps and USB Loader files can be stored on the FAT partition of the HDD
Homebrew apps and USB Loader files must be stored on a FAT partition of the HDD
Stomp-the new MPlayer CE is compatible with NTSF. Homebrew apps stored in the same file structure of an SD card will be read from a FAT partition, of there is no SD card in place. There are also a few other apps that recognize the NTSF-formatted-can't remember them specifically, but figured some might use them and so used the softer phrasing. Thanks, Stomp.
