    Can you use a part of your computer hard drive with USB Loader?

    If you have the cables to connect it to your Wii via USB I don't see why not

    A usb to usb cable makes this work?
    Wouldn't you have to format your hard drive though? XD
    That could get annoying =3

    I'm not sure if this is possible because the USB Port on your PC is not directed to your HDD and Instead of your will trying to recognize you PC HDD, you PC will try to recognize you Wii

    No, you can't. Unless you can turn IDE/SATA/PATA cables into USB cables, take the hard drive out of your computer, and reformat the whole thing to WBFS. Seriously, you're not going to be able to just say "I can't afford to buy a new USB HDD, so I'll just rip apart my computer and it will work fine". Just buy a USB drive, you'd have to buy a new HDD anyway if you did this.

    I thought you meant taking the HDD out of your PC and connecting it to your Wii, I dont think connecting your PC's USB Port to Wii USB Port will ever work

    You could get a cheap SATA drive and a USB SATA docking station. It's what I'm using. I had a spare 200gb SATA which gave me errors a while back, so I replaced it.

    Works fine now though.
