    is it gonna be possible for future revisions?
    since wii has 2 usb ports, maybe it can handle 2 ext hd's.. altho there might not be enough power?
    i have 320gb one and it's already full.
    would be nice to have 2... if i can buy 1TB one in the future, 2 drives will probably cover all my needs.

    there are enough good games for the wii to fill up 320 gb?


    seriously is it really that difficult to just power down and swap hd's? oh yeah and are there enough good games to fill up 320gb?

    most games dont use the full 5GB, USB Loader shrinks them
    get a 1000GB drive should be enough for you

    yeah, each is about 2GB average.
    i already got 320GB... hoping to get 1TB one in the future if it can support 2 hard drives.

    usb loader 10. & 1.1 can only support upto either its 500 or 650 gigs so if your h/d is any bigger it won't show that extra space!

    I mamaged to get 3 games (wii fit/rig racer/??????) on a 2 gig sd card with 0.38gigs left to spare , but true some of the better games (sonic and the black knight) and other good large games that take up a lot of room, petzzz/dogzzz and 90% of the other shouvle ware take up little room.
