No one seems to want to take the initiative to make a compatibility list for hard drives for Dios-Mios (see note at end of post) so I decided to do this instead. Just quickly look over at the hard drive you've got connected to your Wii and post the brand and size and the kind/drive name if you can. Turn it over and post the model number if it's not too much trouble, too. Just what you know off the top of your head is great but all the information you can get could be useful, too. Useful info could include - brand - size (E.G. 500gb) - model name - model number - separate power or USB powered - Is it a stand-alone hard drive, IDE/SATA adapter, or hard drive enclosure ... or even a flash drive ? - Physical size - other physical description - Is it working for you with Dios-Mios? <-- this is an important one - USB 2.0 / 3.0 any other information you think might help someone else identify your drive would be nice, too. ^ VOTE plz It's interesting to see how much of a gamble it really is/isn't to just go out and buy a drive. DON'T WORRY IF IT'S ALREADY ON THE LIST. JUST GO AHEAD POST YOUR INFO. SOMETIMES TWO DRIVES LOOK LIKE THE SAME MODEL BUT THEY'RE REALLY NOT. MORE CONTRIBUTIONS ARE ALWAYS BETTER. If you later figure out it was just formatted wrong or something and want to change you're answer or just want to add more details about your drive just EDIT your original post. This will keep people from finding wrong info in old posts and limit the length of thread people have to look through to get info. Oh, and please try to keep this thread free of any questions or answers about why a drive might not work or how to get it to work. That can be posted on the tutorial threads that tell how to get things working in the first place : http://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-p...s-from-sd-or-usb-using-dios-mios-lite.318585/ - - - - - - - - - - - - - NOTE : I'd like to thank CheatFreak47 for finally starting a compatibility list based on the categories people are using in this thread. http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/Dios_Mios_HDD_Compatibility_List A list like this is a lot easier to read and looks a lot nicer but at least for me it's always a little confusing to edit (I'm personally always scared I'm going to delete everybody else's work or otherwise just screw up the whole table.) If ANYONE feels like periodically updating that when they have some free time with the information that's been added here, that would be great. I'm personally usually too busy to do so but it would be nice to be able to just scan the list and then look at the last few yet un-added posts at the end here.
