    So on Wednesday I'm planning to buy a 1 TB portable USB hardrive for my Wii at around £40-£50. I have been using Neogamma to load discs for about a year since I softmodded my Wii but have decided to upgrade and load games from a USB hardrive but am not sure what to get. I want one that works with all of the USB loaders but particulary USB loader GX, Wiiflow and Configurable USB loader. I wold also like it to work with homebrew as well as Geexbox (I have never used it before but it looks good so I may in the future). I would also like you to be able to disable sleep mode if it comes with it. So if anyone knows a good, reliable one please suggest it too me. [​IMG]

    PS: I have alreasy looked through the USB Devices compatibility list on GBAtemp but it confuses me a bit.

    what's better about that than the one i posted earlier? surely the other's £5 cheaper (and thus the better choice)?

    Because my one comes with 2 years warranty and is delivered in two days and I like it cause it's smaller.

    i use a cheap samsung 500gb external
    works perfectly
    u should stick with popular tms and somewhat older models
    they are cheaper and most of them are compatible
