    Us USB External HDD?

    I am new to this site. This is my first post. Over the past few days I have learned a TON about how to mod my Wii. I have been able to Softmod my Wii and get it operational thanks to the wonderful Tutorials found here on this site.

    My next step is I want to hook up an external HDD to my Wii and run backups on that. However, my question stems from this next step. I have an old 120GB hard drive that is not getting used. It is a Western Digital. I will need to buy an external enclosure in order to utilize it with my Wii.

    2 questions:

    1.) Will any external enclosure work properly with my Wii?

    2.) Will the Wii work with a USB 2.0 external enclosure?

    Thanks in advance for any replies!

    1) There is a USB compatibility list somewhere on gbatemp.com
    2) Yes, the Wii does support USB 2.0. Excellent speed in loading games
