I believe I opened my thread in the wrong section and therefore could not get enought attention to my questions, I'm sorry about that. Anyway, I finally managed to come down to two possible products that I'd like to buy as my permanent hdd for my wii. http://www.amazon.com/Passport-500GB-Portable-External-Storage/dp/B006Y5UV4U/ref=dp_ob_title_ce or http://www.amazon.it/Western-Digita...nts-Portable/dp/B005A97A86/ref=dp_ob_title_ce both are portable devices, so there will not be any external power support, but since they are both 500gb, from what I know there won't be any problems. Just to remind you guys, I'm using a backwards compatible white wii, so I'm looking for both Wii and NGC compatibility. If anyone uses these products and is happy with them, please share your experiences or suggestions.
