    I have a 1TB drive that i am trying to get connected to my WII. The unit is all hacked but for some reason it will not read this drive. If i plug in a 2 or 4 gig usb small keychain drive it reads the game fine. I really want this 1tb drive to work so i can store more games. The drive has been formatted at ntfs and fat32 with no luck.

    no the games should copy at HD speed
    Normally 20-25MB/s
