    In the recent years storage have evolved greatly for what we have used to. Because the HDD i used to use for my side-loading with USB Loader GX died I found it really hard to find a piece of hardware to work correctly in there or Nintendon't and went to the compatibility list found in here.

    Because of that, It is really hard because finding a HDD below 1TB is hard nowadays. For that reason I'd like to propose an update for future (hardware) generations.

    That would be a newer list or filter to the one that already exists. Also focusing in enclosures and adapters would make it "kind of" future-proof.

    Willing to hear your thoughts and ideas. Regards.

    That looks great. The HDD is not an option for me (to expensive for me to import) but the SATA 2 USB is.

    According to the current database, the cases and connector or bridges (SATA to USB for instance) are the thing that matter when it comes to checking compatibility.
