    I tried booting a couple of my old GBA backups off of my USB hard drive and they seemed to load a LOT slower, and hell, I don't think I could get a single one to work.. Does anyone get better results from their USB?

    SNESgx seems more unreliable too... and I think FCEUGX froze up once. Its not a problem with my HDD, I play wii backups off it all the time.

    wd elements 640 gb
    loads vbagx, snesgx, genplusgx, fceugx and scummvm perfectly from usb
    no noticeable speed different from SD, because the file size is so small anyways
