    I've been hacking my Wii now for about a year (Thanks Wiipower, Xflax, TJ_cool, Waninkoko, Dr Clipper....et all)

    I started with the Homebrew channel, and emulators, moved on to Backup-discs then installing Wads and finally USB Loading.
    Now I'm looking at using a USB nand, the problem I've come across is that some games freeze my Wii when I try to return to the menu, I understand that this is a common problem with Triiforce (if your about to say sneek my HDD is set to 64k clusters and I understand that it has to be 32k, and it's far to late to change it)

    So what am I asking, well what is the benefit if any of using a USB NAND over using a good sized SDCard for my VC/Wiiware wads.

    Yeah I've been trying both Wad2ISO and Mighty channels and right now Wad2ISO is my preferred choice because I run my Wads from cfg, but this freeze issue is a pain when the kids are using the wii, wheres as the SDcard works perfectly.
