    Anyone have this drive? I'd like to know if it is compatible before purchasing. The 1TB model is listed on the compatibility wiki so I assume it will work, but we all know what happens when you assume something. :)

    In my opinion, I'd stay away from Toshiba HDDs when it comes to Wii USB loading ( if that is your purpose ).
    Several models are reported to be incompatible, I myself have a 500 GB Canvio 2.0/3.0 and it only gave me problem from the start ( I have to unplog it everytime I start up the USB loader otherwise my Wii will freeze ), no matter how many revision of D2X I tried.

    If I were you, I'd go with a brand proven to work flawlessly, such as WD od Seagate.

    Bummer. Normally I would stick with Seagate but I have a 1TB Freeagent Goflex portable drive that no USB loader can read when I have the usb 3.0 cable plugged in, only the usb 2.0 cable works so I'm a bit leery getting a Seagate.

    I spent a couple of days to make a "Canvio Plus" work, also switching between different d2x/rodries IOSs and loaders. It didn't. Returned it and got a WD MyPassport instead, worked with no problems.
