    Just wondering, I have USB Loader GX up and running now, and with a brand new hard drive full of room and opertunity... wondering what else I can get to run off it. It'd be cool if there was a movie player that could read from a USB device, or something to play WADs, or anything else. Anyone know?

    I have a 1 TB hdd split into 2 500 gig partitions. Wii games on one. Movies on the other. MPlayer and Geexbox work a champ.

    Just remember WBFS can't hold anything but Wii games, so if you want to use it for anything else you need to partition the hard drive and have the other partition formatted to whatever else you need for other apps and whatnot.

    I think on top of media playing, you can put like rom's and stuff on it to load from emulators and such.

    awsome thanks [​IMG] I've already got it split into 2 partitions. So we can't run WADs of it yet, just movies?

    Wads cant be run from it, but the wad files can be installed from there

    Thats about it. Im sure you could probably get text documents such as e-books up and running but I dont know much about that.
