    Not sure if i'm posing in the right area, but here goes.

    I've been thinking about installing a usb loader on my wii, but i don't got an external HDD, so i started to think, would a USB memory work or is it too slow for the games to run off it? Was just thinking, no harm there right?


    I mean the external HDD's are pretty cheap, but always trying to cut corners when it comes to my power outlets.

    So does anyone know if a usb memory would work with the usb loaders?

    No, but there's a page with compatible USB devices (usually, they are working with all cIOSes unless mentioned otherwise):
