    I'm sure this has been mentioned but I've been searching and all the words usb, dlc, and rock band are way too common to direct me anywhere useful. so is there any development for using an external usb hard drive to store and play rock band dlc off of or is this just a dream at this point?

    thanks

    playing DLC off external media other than SD is most definitely related to RawkSD. but a word of warning OP... bug anyone in that thread about RawkSD 3.0 and prepare to be flamed

    Yes and no. Playing DLC off external media usually means nand emulation or some other weird means, which is entirely unrelated to RawkSD (whose purpose is customs). Playing DLC off external media also implies DLC piracy, which is frowned upon. We just generally don't want the thread to get filled up with questions and discussions about Hermes' loaders and nand packing. Read back a few pages to find information, but don't repost questions.

    Talking about Rawk v3 doesn't result in flaming, but most Rawk v3 questions are either questions which have already been asked or begging for a release date... use common sense when posting.

    Playing DLC off of an external source does not imply piracy. I don't know about you but in the country I am from its innocent until proven guilty. And I am sick and tired of the piracy hypocrites here. You open up your ipod and you tell me every song that you have on there is a song you paid for (yeah right). You have no right to assume that because someone wants to use nand emulation to store dlc on an external hard drive that they are a pirate.

    "custom" songs are piracy too. importing one song from one game to play on a different game is piracy also. and i don't think anyone here legitimately holds rights to any multi-track master songs to be making customs out of them.

    Yes, except custom songs and imports are what RawkSD is designed to handle. DLC is not.

    In short: if you can figure out a way, good for you. Post a thread about it. But RawkSD isn't the place.

    And most threads seem to go off on a tangent about piracy... The original question was not "Am i pirate if i want to do this?", it was a simple, "Can someone help me with this?"

    My response was simply following up on another user's statement. The thread was adequately answered by the first response - there's a fairly-detailed guide linked there. Just don't post in RawkSD for help about it. Perhaps the guide should be copied to its own topic to avoid further questions.

    Thank you all for the responses. And for the piracy statements relating to what I originally asked I was simply just curious to if there is a way to play DLC off of my hard drive since we all know how small the wiis nand is and that a 4gb card is not that much larger in comparison to all the DLC out on rock band. I personally have no interest in rawksd songs. I was not worried at all with means in which one got the DLC (legitimately or pirating) just being able to have more space for my DLC.
