    Question, if I'm worried about the drive eventually failing, can I back up all my backups on another storage drive I have? I have a 1.5 TB drive, but since the guide reccommended not formating anything over 1TB, I decided to purchase a 320 GB drive from the confirmed list.
    Any idea?
    I don't see why not. I'm not sure what the theoretical limit is on the Wii's capabilities, as far as acknowledging larger drives. I would imagine that 2Tb would be the limit. But my understanding is limited. I get a Wii this weekend, then I can begin REALLY playing

    Thank you.

    I read through the guide and couldn't figure it out. I just didn't want to screw anything up since the only thing I've ever formatted before was the 2GB sandisk I used to softmod the wii. I felt like purchasing a new drive was best for it. :P

    Funny story. I swear the Emulated Super Mario World runs better than my purchased Virtual Console version.

    Yeah, it said 2 TB is the limit. But it said that formatting over 1TB as FAT32 is not reccommended in this guide.

    And to be honest, I was thinking that using my school work/etc as a drive for the Wii probably wouldnt of been the smartest thing.

    I've been running one game so far off of a 4gig flash drive and everything works great. Now that I bought a HDD can I just move theone I have on the flash drive to the HDD or do I have to follow the guide?

    I just finished softmodding my Wii 4.3U using mauifrog's guide, and I'm confused on which steps I need to follow in this guide to get my USB HDD up and running for use with the Wii. I already have Configurable USB Loader from following mauifrog's softmod, so does that mean I should skip the "Forwarder Channel Installation/HBC Loading" section?

    Also, I'd like to have any apps on the WiiHDD so that I don't need to use an SD card. Can someone tell me which steps I should follow and which can be skipped?

    Also do I need to install Hermes cIOS222/223 or cIOSx Rev 19 or 20? Or can that be skipped? If I cannot skip this, which should I choose for a 4.3U (downgraded to 4.1U using mauifrog's guide)?

    You're good if you followed Mauifrog's guide.

    It wasn't clear to me from his response, since I'd need to do more than just mauifrog's softmod guide, namely set up a hdd. New to all this, so trying not to brick my console. Would be nice if this was made clear in the first post in this thread because I've seen lots of people asking about it. Like a note after the HDD format "If you followed mauifrog's guide, you can skip forwarder channel section".

    Your response was clear, thanks.
