    Quick question about the USB/HD Loader...

    Has anyone ever tried using a Hammer HU 110 640GB HD on the Wii? According to NewEgg, there's a Hitachi Model HDT721064SLA380 Sata 3.0 Gb 7200rpm in it. Neither products are listed in the Wii USB Device Compatability List.

    I read that most Hitachi Hard Drives work OK with the Wii. Does the Hammer enclosure make a difference? Sorry if this seems like a silly topic, but I'd like to know before the sale ends.

    Thanks!

    i've read more than a few posts where people state the enclosures very much make a difference...so caveat emptor.

    Yeah, that's what I've been hearing too. That's why I'd like to know whether anyone has used a HAMMER enclosure before.

    Thanks for all the replies, and I'll consider some of the HDs shown.

    But I'm still interested to see if anyone has used the Hammer enclosure. 640GB for $60 is a good price!
