    Do usb flash drives work?

    I just found a 128gb flash drive on ebay for $20 by kingston. I know it makes nooo sense why someone would sell this low but I think Im going to try it. Do all flash drives work for using homebrew on wiis?

    Heres a link of the flash drive:

    Well, I finally got this in the mail today. It was advertised as a Kingston 128gb Datatraveler 200 flash drive. But what I received was a Kingston 256gb Datatraveler 300 flash drive. But it turns out it is fake. Shortly after I ordered it, Ebay took the listing down and the seller is no longer a member. Turns out this guy has been selling fake storage devices. (See Here!)

    The thing works in my pc, but has slow data transfer time. The Wii will not see it. When I open Homebrew the circle loading icon flashes, then nothing shows up. Oh well it was only $14.99.



    EDIT - Funny, it works in my PS3.
