    Looking for a USB drive that's sure to work

    Hi, I just recently softmodded my wii and was looking to buy a 1TB USB hard drive so that I can load GC and wii games with USBLGX or Wiiflow. The problem is that (from what I'm reading), a good proportion of them have compatibility issues, especially with dios mios and GC games. I don't have money to throw away on a hard drive that's not going to work, so I was hoping someone could point me to a drive they can confirm first-hand is 100% working with both wii and GC games.

    I've read the dios mios compatibility thread and to be honest it's not much help. It's sparse, mostly just lists drives that have issues, and sometimes lists the same drive model as both working and not working.

    I have this drive:

    Works perfectly with GameCube games using Devolution (I don't use Dios Mios anymore and have not tried this particular drive with it).

    Would the 1TB version probably work too, depite having USB3 (which I loathe with a passion)?

    Ugh, this seems to be one of the drives that's simultaneously listed as working and not working in the compatibility thread. Isn't there anywhere I can find a list of drives confirmed as working with both Wii and GC games, as opposed to the ones that work only partially or not at all (which is all the compatibility thread seems to have)?

    Does it come with a sleep mode or anything else that needs to be disabled?

    When I received mine, it had sleep mode disabled out of the box. It did come with software for you to go in and check the settings for yourself. Or I got it from the manufacturer's web site, I don't recall.

    I just remmeber that I bought a 3TB drive for my mac and the 1.5TB drive for my Wii at the same time - both the same manufacturers, both had sleep mode available, but disabled out of the box.
