    external hard disk

    my wd elements desktop HD lately is crashing so ive decided to change it with a new one..

    with all the new external hard disk in the market these days,do they have any differences? would they all work? usb 3.0? is it better to get the portable HD that is doesnt need a power supply?

    We have a thread of known compatible hard drives: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...lity-list.html

    Your best bet is to stick with USB 2.0 that has its own external power source, if you can. Smaller hard drives should do well enough on USB power (I ran USB-powered 250 gig hard drive for years before upgrading to a 1.5TB drive.
