    This is just a quick mod I did using an old Game Boy system, 2.5" to USB guts and a 100GB HDD

    Let me know what you think.

    Thanks

    Very cool. Would have be cool to make a hdd out of the ds as well. That way we could hae gotten some real ds to wii connectivity. *roll on snare to cymbal*

    Sweet, There's this awesome game store that I am so happy to have called Videogame Star that sells old consoles and games and they have a gameboy for about 5 bucks. Dont know why I never got it but I defiantly will now.

    It must be classified as an antique and be media related(old music/movies/cartoon) [over 25 years of age(this just made me think of taping a usb cord to my face for the most PORTABLE caddy EVER)] you bet its on...... I know I have a cabbage patch doll around here somewhere....

    woah. a nes controller with a 64 gig usb stick would be the perfect wii games harddrive, for sure. I might actually do that [​IMG]

    edit: is this your cat on the floor? [​IMG]

    Gambia, The
    a 1.8'' hdd and ide/power to usb adapter should be much cheaper and could fit in a nes controller as well.

    Bonus points for having it still work as a USB controller.
    (are we ever going to get USB controller support for the emulators?)
