    I'm going to buy a HDD. A lot of people recommend me the "Western Digital 320 GB My Passport Essential", but in the USB Compatibility List, I read "BE AWARE, NEW DRIVES HAVE HIDDEN VCD THAT CANNOT BE DELETED CAUSING THE DRIVE NOT TO WORK WITH USBLOADER". So, if I buy a new WD HDD, probably it won't work with USBLoader?

    They work fine - I have the 750gb with the VCD, my friend the 500, he has downloaded the software to hide the VCD, mine is still visable.

    Both work fine

    With GX and CFG - 222v4 249r17

    Have the 1TB model and going strong, entire drive is formatted as FAT32 and it is dedicated to the Wii. Last time I checked anything over 1TB will cause you problems with triiforce so if that's important to you don't get the 1.5TB drive.

    I recommend them to people when I softmod their consoles for them. Here they are the only usb HDDs sold at the local Wal-Mart so it works out fine for me. [​IMG]
