    Well, there are two hardware based ways you can do this right now:

    - Switch the USB cable between drives as needed.
    - Get a HDD enclosure that does RAID 0 so they show up as 1 big drive (this would require reformatting the drive)

    Honestly, easiest thing to do is buy a bigger drive if you're worried about it. I'm using a 160GB drive and am nowhere near full...there are a lot of 100MB games out there.

    There are only a handful of wii games that are around 100MB.
