    I have USBLoader gx and the forwarder installed on my wii.
    I do not have enough money to buy a portable hard drive so i got a flash drive.
    Is it possible to use a usb hub to hook up more than one flash drive and use the ones hooked up?

    While I am curious to see the answer to this, it does beg this question: Why buy multiple flash drives when you can just save your money and get a HDD? I mean go for one flash drive but from that point on just load it from your computer onto the drive. Once you save up enough to get the drive then your golden.

    USB HDs aren't very expensive these days. I didn't have to buy mine though; my dad gave mine to me.

    Meh...I think it'll count them each as different partions. Only allowing you to use them one at a time, but good luck.

    i already had a 2 gb and 4 gb flash drives and then i recently got an 8gb flash drive. i was hoping there was a way to combine them all with the hub and make a 14 gb drive

    well its not going to see it as a 14gig drive, but you may be able to use a hub, usbgx is gonna have a fit trying to figure outwhich wbfs partition to read from, my guess is that it wont work, but its only a guess. Im not sure anyone tried this before tho
