    I would like to know if it is even possible to run games off of a hard drive, because i went out and bought a network adapter, and a drive just for this. I finally got the hard drive to access the games using hd loader, and the games showed up but none of them worked. Exactly which loader is made to work with these things? Then i tried opl which i find is the most frustrating program ive ever used, because i did everything i was supposed to and it would not show the games that i had on my hard drive. If anyone has the proper instructions on how to get this to work it would be appreciated, and if i can easily run my games off my wii usb drive then this should be a piece of cake.

    Use Winhiip to format HDD.
    Make sure you set the jumper to master when installing to the NA.
    I have use TOXIC OS, HDLoader and OPL working with my 1.5TB HDD.

    If your HDD is a Western Digital, set the jumper on Cable Select
