    I wonder which one is more compatible, a flashdrive or a SDHC card, because im probably gonna get myself a Wii soon (only for a few first & second party games, i mean MKwii, Super Smash Bros Brawl, New Super Mario Bros Wii, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Mario Power Tennis). It must be affordable in Holland, so under €100. I'm not sure about space, I need to fit in 4 single layer games and 1 dual layer, and since I don't know about the true size of these games (can someone tell me the unscrubbed and updates removed size?) and I need some space for another title just in case something very cool pops up (unlikely since Kinect is cool too)

    So can someone tell me about how these work (I guess the most cheap option is a 16GB cruzer micro by Sandisk)
    SDHC:
    http://bit.ly/drGBT4 Sandisk 16GB SDHC, €33.08
    http://bit.ly/aD6jls Bestmedia platinum 32gb sdhc, suddenly double the cost

    Flashdrives:
    http://bit.ly/dAtZOh Sandisk Cruzer micro 16gb, €27.92 (need to get rid of U3 tho)
    http://bit.ly/bwv3W2 Bestmedia platinum 32gb, €57.25 (again almost the double cost and again bestmedia :@)

    have good expieriences with this shop

    Sandisk 16gb sdhc is in one shop 6 euros cheaper
    bestmedia sdhc thing couldnt find in tweakers.net pricewatch

    Sandisk 16gb stick is just in cheapest shop 1 euro cheaper.
    and couldnt find bestmedia again

    and I also looked and found out that a WD Elements Portable 250gb hdd is €50 cheapest... http://bit.ly/aybnS6

    So, what should I get, I guess 16gb is definitely too small, and 32gb is too expensive compared to 250gb (though many of that space wouldn't be in use, perhaps I can do something funny with it, like renting a game somewhere then dumping it to wbfs?)

    i guess i should take the WD Elements Portable 250 gb hdd, cuz the wiki list says they ARE compatible.
