    Hey,

    it happened the 2nd time today that my Wii crashed while playing a game from my external HD. Do you think it's because of the USB or maybe because of overheating or something like that?
    I think in both times my Wii has been turned on for 2 or 3 hours, and it's getting really hot here sometimes.

    Thanks,
    Exo

    yeah most likely overheating
    since you can play for 2-3 hours its not the HDD going in standby

    I found out that it is NOT overheating but the HD going into standby mode after a while. I know that because when I came back from dinner and pressed "Restard" in MKWii, I heard the HD starting again and I got a black screen. But it's not a big problem, I'll just save every time I leave the Wii alone.

    If it only happens every 2-3 hours it shouldn't be a problem [​IMG] - And you know, you should save energy by turning of the wii when you don't use it and bla bla bla... [​IMG]
