    he has created a working patch for usb 1.1....no we can start to use the usb slot with pen drives etc on our favorite emulators and homebrew.

    I dont care for iso loader, but being able to usb pen drive is great step forward. in his post he did mention that we all start to pull together with emulator authors and create a universal release not several versions of the same emulators. come on peeps let make this work good.

    What Nintendon't, Wii Do!

    Congrats w/the USB mass storage; I was starting to dislike the size limit of SD cards on the Wii.

    It's unfortunate that USB 2.0 isn't in the horizon but storage capacity beyond the limits of an SD card is great [​IMG]

    Wait, I'm confused. Is it only USB 1.1 due to hardware or software limitation?

    Doesn't FAT only support up to 2gb volume sizes? 4gb with 64kb clusters, which are not widely supported.

    That's what Wikipedia tells me anyway.

    Someone tell me otherwise!

    FAT aka FAT 16 supports up to 4GB.

    Btw, your avatar scares me...

    That's what I thought, hardly a major breakthrough then. It's not like we can hook up a 80gb HD and fill it with roms n stuff.

    The only way I can see round it would be to partition the drive in to multiple 4gb partitions and split stuff across each partition, which isn't ideal.

    FAT16 also only supports 8.3 filenames.

    but it will support fat32 too, dont worry, i think the only problems are loading BIIIG files, e.g. movies or maybe big roms (neogeo), i dunno

    If it supports FAT32 then there's no problem.

    Fingers crossed.

    this is great news, and if wiimiidia is real then putting films on this should be good or would usb 1.1 be a problem?

    USB 1.1 would be fine for running all qualities of audio and video formats. The real issue is loading a wii iso (if ever a loader was written).

    Well, no HD content, but of course there are other limitations, not only the limited speed. On a side note; how about making a Memory Card -> USB adapter or SD Card -> USB. Then again, there are some other limits that appear, plus I'm not even sure how viable it is ...

    That's why I think the only speed limit we would encounter using 1.1 is for loading ISO's
