    Hello, i tried using the search but it wasn't working for me. I just wanted to know if the wii is capable of playing medias thru a USB external harddrive? If so, what would i need to do? Thanks.

    Run MPlayer-CE on your homebrew capable Wii.
    Check the hacking section on how to make your Wii able to run Homebrew. (Twilight Hack, Homebrew Channel etc.)

    if your hard drive is NTFS formatted, you'll have to use GeexBox instead of Mplayer.
