    This is just an idea but how about a USB DVD Drive loader? Would that already be possible with the usb loader? An external DVD drive is cheaper than an External hard drive and with the cost of discs being so cheap. An external DVD drive would also be able to read the Disc at fullspeed eliminating 3X speed of the gamma loader.
    This is all purely theory and I'm no programmer, its just a suggestion for those few people like me who want their disc collection =P and don't really want to buy a big hard drive for wii games.

    Your thoughts?

    You can buy a 1TB HDD for €90 which can fit about 250 Wii Games. It reads faster than 6x anyways. So if you factor the cost of an external dvd drive (about €40-50) and 250 Disc's (not including bad burns) it works out the same price of not more expensive to go with the DVD option.

    120 gig is sufficient for usb laoder, and they are usually dirt cheap.
    but usb dvd drive + blank dvd`s cost a bit more than a 120gig hdd.

    The WBFS format only recognises 512 GB so ur wasting a lot of space.
    That being said , it compresses the games much better so games dont take up 1/2 the space.
    I have a game called counter force thats only 0.13 GB on my harddrive

    55 games and they take up 122.83 Gigs of my 500 gig drive
