    I'm about to buy a new hd and was wondering what the max size any loader will see? Currently I have a 320gb ide, but it's completely full and I'd like to get either a 2, 3, or 4 tb hd if possible. Thanks!

    P.s. on a side note does anyone know the max size for the WODE to read?

    to go >2 on wii need (real) 4kiB sectors which is not that great supported in general
    and its hard to determin which sector size a drive has (512B, emulated 512B on 4kiB, 4kiB)


    (there are workarounds but nothing I would want to use)

    I would try to get get a 2T with (real) 512B sectors

    2TB.
    Going beyond that is not worth it.

    anything over 1tb for the wii is just overkill i've been happily using a 320gb since wans loader v1!

    Just letting you know...

    I have a 320GB drive.

    I have about 100 games on there and still have about 100GB free.

    The 100 games I have are all of the non-shovelware games.

    I have my whole collection of gc games on my hd so that's why I need a bigger solution. I'll load those through my WODE and then i'll use the 2tb for Wii games.
