    Are there any drives you recommend? I am looking for something I can keep as 1 partition formatted as FAT32 for Wii, Gamecube, VC games, WiiWare, and ROMs (ie want to use USBLoaderGX, NINTENDONT, TriiForce, etc.). Should it be USB or externally powered? Would SolidState be worth the investment? I found wiki.gbatemp.net's USB_Devices_Compatibility_List guide, but its a bit overwhelming with info and things to consider.

    Thanks!

    Thank you.:)

    SSD are good and ok,but depends on the Controller/Case.
    I have used this Combination:
    https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00OJ3UJ2S/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B076F364XX/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    But encountered some maybe "rare" Issue - it affects the Wii/Wii U´s WiFi Connection when placed on the Top of the Devices.

    My personal Recommendation is this great HDD:
    https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B06W55K9N6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    2 TB should be enough for GameCube and Wii Games.
    But I think the 3 and 4 TB Modells should also compatible.

    It is formatted with FAT32 in one Piece.
    Until today never encountered Intializing/Loading Issues.:)

    Thank you.:)

    This is great, thank you! Also, good for emuNAND as well?

    Thank you.:)

    I can not say yes or no,because I do not use any Kind of emuNAND (only the Save Option from USBLoader GX) but I am pretty sure,it will not fail because of that.:)

    A thought came to mind, and this may be helpful for others reading. Does anyone know if hybrid drives work with loaders? It would be nice having frequently used games load faster while retaining higher storage capacity in one device.

    Hello.:)

    I think,it makes not really a Difference (except the Price),please note the USB 2.0 "Limitation" on the Wii.:)

    So the SATAs and maybe cheap "China" SSDs are a good Solution.:)

    Thank you.:)
