Hey guys, i'm New at this forum and my english is pretty bad.
Going straight to the problem: I have a RVL-001(EUR) Nintendo Wii that runs games in my external Hard Drive using a 10 years old case which needs a Power plug to work.
Since I wanted to make my setup looks cleaner, I bought a generic case for my 2.5 inch HD that doesn't need a Power plug to work.
It worked just fine with my PC, but when i connect It in my Wii USB loader gx shows "waiting for HDD: 5 seconds" and then show go to Channel mode.
Should i search a compatible case and buy It? I already tried changing USB ports and some other things.

You should get a Y-cable and connect it to the Wii, it's because the hdd is not getting enough power with that cable you're using, with the y-cable it should fix the issue.

    submarines are quite a lot bigger

    i don't think we have reactors small enough to fit in a car yet
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    But the generator itself is relatively small.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And in any case you couldn't get proper cooling on the Moon so a powerful nuclear generator is out of the question.

    the moon is like -170C at night i'm sure that's enough

  • Veho @ Veho:
    And the only way to take advantage of that cold is to burrow cooling fins into the ground.

    Contrary to popular belief, the vacuum of space is not cold, it's nothing.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Heat does radiate from warm objects but the effectiveness of radiation cooling is negligible.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    You need a medium to take up the heat and take it away.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And the denser the medium, with a higher specific heat capacity, the better.

  • Veho @ Veho:
    This is why water cooling is better than air cooling.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And why cooling is a major problem in space.

    the moon isn't quite a vacuum

    The Moon's atmosphere is closer to vacuum than it is to Earth's atmosphere. Close enough.
