    Hi All,
    Lame question but need clarification.
    I have 2 wiis, both softmodded, the 1 with the powered usb hdd plays everything i throw at it.
    The wii that has a usb powered hdd only plays some games, is the issue the lack of power, could I use a powered usb hub to resolve the issue rather than buy another hdd.
    Thanks

    or you could buy a powered enclosure for the hdd you already have!

    thanks for the reply, kind of defeats the object, may as well go and buy a powered hdd rather than an enclosure. Anybody know if powered hub with non powered hdd would work,
    thanks
