Has anyone tried to use a external hard drive with USB Loader that is actually USB 3.0?
The wii's USB slots are not 3.0, so it'd transfer at 2.0 speeds.
There is USB 3.0? When did this come around? But I can confirm that the wii currently transfers data at USB 2.0 speeds.
Look, I found a usb 3.0 hdd here. I didn't think they finished up the standard but it looks like there are allready have $7 usb 3.0 cables too
hey guys, let me ask you this, how did they turn the wii from usb 1 to usb 2 through just a driver?
I have no idea but you will probably need a hardware mod for usb 3 because I think it has 6 wires 8 wires instead of the usual 4.
it is from 1.1 to 2.0
ya, but wondering how thats possible
i mean nintendo built a 1.1 usb controller
with some magic software it becomes 2.0
could someone explain to me how that happens and why it cant be the same for 3.0?
i have a 1TB HDD like this.
It's not USB 3.0, its 2.0.
I'm even using "TERACOPY" and the maximum transfer speed is about 35 MBytes/s average
usb 3.0 will be impossible on the wii without a hardmodd because usb 3.0 uses 8 wires instead of 4.
The hardware of the wii is USB 2.0. They included 1.1 drivers in the wii software/IOS. cIOS 202/222/249 are using an EHCI module to forward USB messages to 2.0 calls or something like that. Technically speaking, I don't know what I'm talking about, but it's something like that.
interesting, any idea why they did that?
Does the wii provide 500 ma when running a cios? usb 1.1 only gives 100ma.
Possibly because when the Wii was designed the USB 2.0 standard wasn't fully ratified - the hardware was there, but still choices had to be made about how it operated - so send it out as 1.1 on 2.0 capable hardware. Then a simple update to give 2.0 operation.
They could have put it out as a USB 2.0 draft device, advertised it as such and then had a raft of CS calls and bad press when Nintendo USB 2.0 draft didn't work with USB 2.0 draft.
how do i find out if my computer has 3.0 on it?
what do you mean?
we have had usb 2.0 stuff for nigh 8 years
Unless you bought your motherboard later than about mid-Jan of this year, it doesn't.
But you can always look up your computer online.
My usb 3.0 ports are blue and have USB 3.0 written between the two ports as opposed to the normal usb symbol next to it. Not sure if that's like a standard or anything though. Only have 2 of those ports as opposed to the 8 regular usb 2.0 ports in it.
Then more likely that big N foresaw no need for anything beyond USB 1.1 at launch and pushed out a subsequent update when they did have a need.
go to your mainboards manufactures website and look at the MB's specs
nope it isn't o well who gives a shit
