    I'm in the market for a external hard drive to use to hold my games... I am looking for something on the cheaper side but with a lot of memory. I installed all the Homebrew stuff, thinking my Dad would let me use one of his five bajillion hard drives, but that didn't work out. [​IMG] Any recommendations?

    The default formatting for my HP SimpleSave (SmartSave, I dunno) works fine with USB Loaders.
