    Because the first steps that one needs to start hacking their wii cannot use anything else. Maybe one could hack the wii with a usb drive if the wii actually was able to store and read data off it in the first place.

    TL;DR usb drives cant be read without hacks, SD cards already accepted.

    Shouldn't this be in the N00B Paradise thread?
