    I would like to suggest me a good external hdd for the usbloader!

    1) How big should be? less than 500 gb or more?

    2) What i should check for the power supply?

    3) Western Digital or Seagate or something else?

    Thank you!

    I have 2 Wii's and on my Wii I have a 320 GB Seagate portable and for my daughter's Wii she has a 500 GB Seagate portable. I put all of her dvds(75+) and Wii games on her hard drive hence the big 500 GB with alot of room to add more stuff. And best of all the Seagate portable drives require no external power supply and simply run off the USB port. Awesome hard drives. I would say an average Wii game is 2.75 GB and the movie dvd's are 3.25 GB. So from those numbers you can decide on how big your hard drive should be.

    Some bigger harddrives need extra power, others get their power through USB.
    The latter ones are normally more expensive though

    The Seagate portable drives use usb power. You must have the non-portable Seagate drive aka Desktop hard drive.
