    Using faster Hard drive improve wii games loading time?

    Hey guys, does anyone know if using a faster rpm hard drive and bigger cache memory drive will improve the loading times on softmoded wii? I am thinking of buying a bigger hd but not sure if the speed and cache size matter in helping to improve loading time. If anyone can chime in, I would really appreciate. And also is there a limit to the maximum hd size that Wii can handle? Thanks.

    No, the bottleneck is going to be the wii's 2.0 USB port. The max speeds you are going to see are around 25-30 MB/s no matter what drive you use.
    But it should be loading about the same speed as the disc does anyway

    In my experience, it actually loads faster with USB.
