    Hello,

    In general Western Digital discs are of good quality for the Wii.

    why do ppl use the term usb for everything?
    Do you mean a usb fan, usb lamp, usn charger, usb wireless mouse adapter, .... (the list can go on and on)

    O and I case any one needs a HDD I bought a 320GB Toshiba works a treat games load instant and didn’t need to do nothing but format and plug and play

    HDD:https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B004UGUVU4?ref=ppx_pt2_mob_b_prod_image
    Sata to usb: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B011M8YACM?ref=ppx_pt2_mob_b_prod_image

    lol, if you still can't tell the difference between a USB, a flash drive, a mobile/external hdd and an internal hdd then why all this fuss in updating the compatibility list?

    If you are not providing adequate/accurate information in the first place, how do you expect adequate/accurate quick responses?

    @3smoke So you would like a McFlurry , Chicken Nuggets and Pizza lol

    I would go for USB External HDD 3'5 Personally but 2'5 is good but you need the additional Y Cable for the extra Power. USB Sticks may have issues.

    I have a 1TB 3'5 with WiiU/GC/DS and a seperate 300GB for my Wii Games so I can use Cheats or Mods but you can install Wii Games on the WiiU Drive if you wanted just like GC/DS/WiiU.

    Yh I forgot to mention I bought my HDD couple days back with amazon prime it’s a 2.5” HDD 320GB with a Sata to usb and is working perfect straight out of the box formatted to Fat32 and put all games on and loading perfect load time near instant
    Here’s links cost me £25 roughly

    phineas and ferb LOL ... It possible it requires a certain IOS to Boot or in most cases it the Video Mode dont force Progressive or Widescreen and if PAL enable PAL50 Patch. Have Video for Title as Disc Default.
