    Maybe try a HDD instead of a Thumb drive... iunno. Sandisk is supposedly great for this stuff but maybe that one isnt.. 8gb isnt that much space anyhow.

    i bought a hdd that was on the compatibility list, but that didnt work. i noticed though that when i use usb port 0 the drive doesnt do anything, but when i use the other port the drive becomes active. i tried wiiflow and that didnt work either. any other ideas?
