    Is it harmful to the USB HDD playing your backups straight form the drive you want to store them on? I was thinking of maybe having a backup for my backups. anyone experience any problems playing straight from a USB HDD?

    While any kind of use wears the drive down, there is no evidence that using a hdd on a wii is worse than on a pc.

    Having a backup is good idea in any case.
    But for data that does not need high availability and can be recreated at need (rerip) its overkill imho.
