    Hello all I've been recently looking at hard drives to play wii games off of USB loader gx. I've been looking at this model: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/wd-elem...81217&skuId=9291106&st=WD elements &cp=1&lp=1

    Its a Western Digital Elements 1tb and the model number is: WDBUZG0010BBK-NESN

    I've looked at the USB loader guide and it says that the Western digital element is a great hard drive but none of them
    say anything about this model number. So I was wondering if anyone can help me out with this hard drive. It seems
    great but i'm really worried about things like spin down and power management (powers from usb). Any help would be
    very appreciated.

    Thanks!!!

    Did I put this in the wrong section. Should I move this to Wii- Backup Loaders?

    any powered HD should be fine, and most WD stuff is okay at best

    I use a WD Elements 1TB HD.
    works perfectly.
    It's a good choice. Go for it.
    A smaller hard drive will likely be fine for a long time if you are going to use the HD for games.
