    My disc drive has recently died, so no more playing backups from discs. I'm going to get an external hard drive and I have a few questions.

    What's better to format my drive to, FAT32 or NTFS? Pros/cons of each?

    What's a good brand to get? I've heard either Western Digital or Seagate will work pretty good, is this true?

    What is a good size hd to get? I was thinking of getting a 500 GB one. How many games can that hold?

    I know you can use your backup launcher (I'm using cfg usb by the way) to rip original games to your external hd. I have a dead disc drive though. Is there any other way I can do it?

    I've found this one, is it any good? It says it's for Mac, but can I still use it for my Wii?

    Thanks in advance.
