    My friend has a Samsung cruiser i think it's called, its a flash drive. Would i be able to buy one of those, and run the Wii games off of that using the USB loader? I know i can use USB HDD's but i wasn't sure about things like the Cruiser and such

    as long as you reformat it in wbfs format yes you can play wii games off a flash drive, i did it with my wii before i got a hard drive

    The flash drive can be FAT32 or NTFS, as well.

    To summon up, yes. It will work for you.

    If the flash drive is wii compatibel, it will work.
    It's a bit a "hit and miss" situation, but it's the same with a harddisk.
    It's no longer needed to format a partition in wbfs. Most usb loaders support fat and fat32.
    Only recently, support for ntfs and ex2 or ex3 were added. So you better test with fat or fat32.
