    USB ports on wii !

    Hi m8's. My kids wii is working 100% for over 1.5 yrs with D2pro chip & running backups from an external 150gb (laptop) HD, I use the bottom port. This maybe a stupid Q, but can I use the other port also, with another HD, I've tried this but only the original Hd works even though there is activity on the none functional HD, so there is power to it but cannot read from it. I've tried the wii settings to enable 2 USB ports but nothing, also tried the USB loader GX v1.0 & wii flow to see if one can configure for both USB ports... any help will be great...

    no, you can only use the 1 port for a USB HDD.

    The best you could do is install Hermes IOS 222 which would allow for the 2nd USB port to work --- but for instruments only, not another HD.
