    A few months ago I had problems playing a specific game, now none of my games work correctly, so gathering from that my laser is bitched.
    Someone suggested investing in an external HD. I found this one, and am wondering if this is compatible with my wii.

    Ive used the 1tb model of this drive before and it worked just fine. I would imagine the 500gb model would also work.

    I have never worked one of these before, does it take discs and connect to the wii via wires or does it connect with the wii with an internet connection or something?? Sorry probably seems like a a stupid question

    it's a hdd. similar to whats in your computer. You load it up with iso's and it plugs into the wiis usb port.

    Our external hard drives fit in the palm of your hand and does not require external power supply. The ultra-portable data pocketec United do not require additional power, since all the energy is drawn through the USB. , You can take it anywhere! Data Great handset is compatible with laptops and desktops, PCs / Mac / Linux file sharing, cross-platform is simple.

    I currently have two external hard drives that I have big problems. One is a Seagate Free Agent, Hitachi and others, that seems Western Digital in-house.
