    DVD vs SD vs HDD vs USB Flash?

    Hi, I've been looking around and it seems to be that HDD/SD/FLASH are better than DVDs because of their speed, time consumption, memory usage, and (error free). For my backups, should I just keep them in DVD form or buy a HDD and format it to use the WBFS manager? I was planning to buy the WD MyBook Essentials 1TB. I was planning to do a USB Flash drive with 16GB or so since it's much more portable and less storage space, but there are so many programs out there to use it with. And all I have installed is the BootMii and HBC and Neogamma7 without preloader. I know NG7 can upload them, so I might just stick with that.

    Not really sure what your question is... Are you asking how to prepare a usb device, or asking if that's the route to go? Its really up to you if you're asking the latter.

    overall, I'm asking which would be the better choice, and safest/smoothest, to backup my games without any worries using softmod out of all the possible storages available.

    also, burning an already backup game wouldn't ruin the first backup would it?

    Personally I use wanikoko's usdloader v1.5 to back them up onto a thumb drive then put them onto my pc as zipped iso's untill I need to reburn them. I've never tried to back up a backup before but there is no way it could ruin your origional backup. I run off dvds usually but am really thinking about getting a hard drive cause it IS a lot easier. Also you won't have to buy dvds. Hope this helps. Good luck!
