    first off, will HBC detect the flash drive hooked onto the back of the wii?
    secondly, of many apps, for example something like visualboy gba and snes9x(since i already have the emulator on the SD), will i need the emulator on the USB too or can i just add more roms and switch back and forth from choosing games from the USB or sd?
    thirdly, using LoadStructor to play Wii isos/wiiware WADs, does it use up the flash drive's memory or the wii's memory?

    1.only HBC1.0.2 detects the USB
    2.No need for the emulator on the USB, just the roms
    3.LoadStructor I believe only creates channels that loads Wii isos from the USB, but the channel gets installed in the Wii

    but what if i run out of pages even though i still have plenty of space left on my usb?
    [does loadstructor allow to create extra pages or something?]

    I really don't get you...!! [​IMG] pages..?? as in the Main Menu pages..?? no way to create "extra" pages on Wii's main menu, your USB hasn't anything to do with the Wii at all, even if you have a 1TB HDD and your Wii only has 512MB plus your 2GB SD (or 32GB SDHC), it has to do with the homebrew apps only, and again, LoadStructor ONLY creates channel for loading certain game stored in your USB device, but the main program runing that channel is, in fact, a homebrew app

    Loadstructor won't allow any additional pages. Your best bet is using your SD and updating to 4.0 if you haven't already. The SD Menu allows up to 2000 "channels". Put your extra channels on there and take your favorite 20 or so games and put them on the system menu.

    im already updated to 4.0 using wanin's stuff and my sd card is low on space. i bought a usb flash drive so that i can use more space and i think iirc, my wii's system was kinda low on memory blocks. so even though i got more than plenty of "pages" remaining, im still low on sd capacity [​IMG]
