    It won't blow up, although nothing at all is going to happen when you do that.
    Why do you want to hook your Wii up to your computer like an external hard drive?

    actually you can do this.
    but you need a hard mod via the internal usb port i think.
    i saw a video ages ago with someone hooked up wii to pc, used it as hard drive and to send and boot iso's and apps.
    completly useless really though as you can do this over ftp.

    easiest way to do a similar thing is to buy a HDD for your Wii - super glue it to your wii (or anything you want) - make sure you have long cable to connect your usb(wii/pc) to tiny usb(HDD)
    now when you use your wii plug the hard drive into the usb port on the wii
    when you want to use the wii as a hard drive plug your hard drive into your pc

    not quite the same but with waninkokos new cios, wad manager, and nand emulator you will achieve the same thing.

    Wait, do you want to use your computer for the external hard drive or the Wii? Because the Wii doesn't have that much space lol.
