    Can I use a USB HD for wii stuff, and to back up PC files?

    I'm sure this has been covered before, but I can't find the answer.

    I've read the mod any wii and FAT 32 threads!

    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...ide-fat32.html

    Would I need to create separate partitions? Or can I easily store folders of other stuff okay alongside wii files?

    Thanks.

    edit: PS - are there any particular harddrives thought to be best for this, other than those listed in the 'compatible hard-drives' thread? Ta.

    A lot of users seem to like the WD (western Digital)

    I use an Iomega and have never had any issues.. however I only store games and covers on mine.

    Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here

    Coincidentally I had just put a WD 2tb WDBAAU0020HBK in my Amazon basket.

    I was uncertain about spending so much on such a big drive, but I think you've swung it for me. Now I'll be able to keep copies of all those old files that I can't be bothered to open to see if I want them, and will probably never look at ever again anyway.
