    That falls under "whatever works for you," there is no right or wrong answer for this.

    Agreed. I've personally ripped like 10-12 games at a time back to back but there are some people who don't want to use their drive what so ever.

    I don't think so. PC speaking I have drives that are left infinitely up other than the occasional reboot that are reading and writing a hell of a lot more than the Wii drive.

    Even less likely to fail... USB powered by bus --- no heat buildup like say inside a tower. OP: take a grain of salt with any reply you get here... for example, Marketpantry's contribution (no offense, MP --- but experience with PCs for years has taught me otherwise).

    I know you were asking from a external standpoint, I was making a comparison to the much-cooler external choice as opposed to an internal. I was saying external (typically, although in your case sounds like you got a lemon) if anything is even more reliable than an internal. I think you misread or I wasn't clear enough, apologies; I also missed you were in fact, the OP lol.
