    hi,

    been a long time user of usb ext drive, but i now have a htpc sitting right next to me wii...

    i know what i'd like to do, but i dont know if it can be done....

    i would like to set aside a portion of my htpc hd and create a virtual mass storage device and have a usb cable connect directly between wii and htpc.

    so as i see it, i'd need some program to create a virtual mass storage device (from a fixed/dynamic image) which is mounted...

    format is as wbfs and have the wii (or any other client) think its a external hard drive.

    any ideas?

    thanks,

    skiv

    Most PC's can only be USB masters, not slaves.
    You're unlikely to achieve what you want.

    Why do we have modchips at all?


    but I wonder why nobody has done a network loader for usb network adapters

    For the usb ethernet adapter? It only runs at USB1 speed, that's why.
