    Wii Hard Drive! Thanks!

    Wanted to thank you all for all the posts which helped me with my mods. I started with a DriveKey and burning DVD-R which worked great for about a month while I was researching the Hard Drive. Now I have updated my Wii with a Hard Drive and it is AWESOME! Works like a charm and can backup games with ease and the fact that I dont have to mess with DVDs and the game selection screen is very nice.

    Specs:
    Wii - 4.1u
    Drive: WDBAAF5000EBK-NESN $79.99 for 500GB @ BB
    CIOS 38 rev14
    USB Loader GX r773
    WBFS Manager v3.0

    Thanks!

    USB Loaders are WIN!!!

    Now only if they could implement GC backups that would be SWEET.

    Yep USB Loader GX is the shizzle fizzle. Works great! Cant be happier.

    I wish someone would create the same thing for dvd's so when you go to watch a dvd you can just click on the cover...

    You can, just not currently in such an easy way.

    You can take a source DVD and rip the contents like basically any torrent provider does.

    Note: I am not condoning piracy. I'm only stating their practices. If you rip any DVD, you have to own the original (which...you would...given you're ripping it :-P).

    Then just load the contents onto an external HDD and use Mplayer CE, Geexbox, etc.

    Crude but it does the job.

    Playing video on your Wii now days is almost worthless.
    Most of the newer HD tv's can be networked or have usb port on them.
    Unless you still have a analog TV, Then a Wii is good enough.

    GX Usbloader + Wii = a happy camper...
    PLEASE SEARCH, READ, AND THINK BEFORE DOING ANYTHING.


    Don't forget the thanks button...
