    Hello!
    I have a 2tb external harddrive in fat32 that I use to wii-games and ps3-games and no problem with that, but I have to switch usb-cabel every time I go from Ps3 to Wii and other way around... I wonder if I could buy something so I can have both PS3 and Wii connected to the harddrive at the same time? I´m not lazy but it so hard to reach the cabel behind the wii = Tight on space in my shelf...

    Any suggestion are welcome...

    the manual versions of these should work as long as they don't include a hub
    but as soon as there are any fancy electronics inside all bets are off

    personally I would go for a really low tech variant
    get two short usb extension cables (at least the wii one without hub)
    attatch then to the consoles
    tape their other ends somewhere convinient
    and connect the hdd there
