    Hi all,

    Would I need to get a USB larger than 4.7 GB to backup games via USB loader, or can I use a smaller storage device?

    I mean like can I use a 2GB stick and copy all the data to comp and then take it back, and do that back and forth?

    Thanks in Advance.

    Depends on the game, Hamster hero/Top trumps is tiny (couple of hundred meg). But SSBB is 6.7gig.

    Get yourself a nice Maxtor Basics HD and grab the tools of their site to disable sleep.

    actually majority of games arent even over 2 gigs, there are so many smaller games out there. the smallest sized game ive seen so far is balloon pop, a mere 36 mb mate!

    games like guitar hero and rock band, those are your larger games, those will usually be over 4 gigs, but there are a lot of games that dont even go over 2 gigs

    hopefully im talkin about the right thing here, the sizes these games are on the usb loader right?

    wii sports or wii play is very small as well.
