    Hello. After some research, the currently "best" external hard drive I can find at local retailers (I don't live in the US) is this one.
    Since we can now use FAT partitions to store the .wbfs files I'm going to use this for other stuff as well, lots of space. With an added plus of not requiring plugging into an outlet.

    My question is, has anyone used this HDD with USBLoaders on the Wii? Can anyone recommend it? According to the WikiTemp list, it seems that almost all entries regarding WD Passports are positive, but I'm not sure.
    And regarding disk spindown, would it be a problem with this HDD? If so, how does one fix it?

    Thank you.
