    I've noticed that a FEW games simply do not work on external hard drives but do on flash drives.
    I've tried multiple settings just to see if anything would change but some games simply do not play.

    For my flash drive, I've been using a Sandisk Cruzer 16gb flawlessly without ever having a problem.
    For my externals, I've tried MULTIPLE hdds and they all have the same black screen.
    The externals I've tried out are
    Hitachi 320gb
    Toshiba 320gb
    Seagate 500gb
    and some others I forget.

    A few examples of games that do not work are
    Castle of Shikigami 3
    Shiren the Wanderer
    Monster Hunter Tri (the game plays but do not load animation screens properly and freezes)

    Note that this problem only occurred in externals. I've also experimented with multiple wiis as well and the same problem occurs.
