Ok, so, this is strictly hypothetical until someone forks out the ungodly amount of money for it, but here's something someone invented several years ago:

It's a microSD to USB A adapter. The original intent was something like this:

GOOD NEWS:
It officially supports MicroSD to SD card adapters, thus, could work for the Wii U.

BAD NEWS:
It claims to be "compatible to the latest SD standard" which at the time was SDHC, capping at 32GB.

So, the question is... is it SDHC compatible due to what is under that white hood, or is it SDHC compatible because SDXC wasn't available at the time?

I'm thinking it puts out a LITTLE power, cause it would have to light up some flash storage with it. If I had a Y-Connecting Hard Drive Caddy (for double juice intake, one from SD slot, the other from a front USB port or something) then I MAY be able to achieve these backups to be loaded via a 256 solid state drive.

Unfortunately this will be slower than loading from sd because sd card use a different data protocol for transferring data. The device shown here use a chip to convert from sd to usb and the overhead of that process will make your Ssd as slow as a snail... We've discussed this in the thread "sd speed comparison" look for it.

Not only would this be slow, it would also have the same limitations as the current loadiine. IOSU isn't just usb access.

Shame. Good to know that the formats for SD and USB Flash are very different. If it was a direct cross and just needed adapters on metal channels, that would have been awesome.

Thanks for the info! I will start waiting for a good 256 SD card deal.
