    Hi - I have been browsing the USB Devices compatibility list for using an external HDD on my Wii.
    I want to buy a 1 TB HDD.
    In the compatibility list I could see that the Western Digital My Book Essential 1 TB was rated well and works with everything (green-green-green).
    While looking on the net to buy this I discovered that there are 2 versions:

    - Western Digital My Book Essential 1 TB USB 2.0 External USB Hard Drive (WDBAAF0010HBK-N)
    - Western Digital My Book Essential 1 TB USB 2.0 Edition 2.0 External USB Hard Drive (WD10000H1U-00)

    In the Notes I have read that the second version (Edition 2.0 WD10000H1U-00) powers itself on/off with the Wii.
    I was wondering if anyone here who has the first version (WDBAAF0010HBK-N) could tell me it this version also powers on/off with the Wii.
    I cannot find the Edition 2.0 here where I live, but It would be great if the HDD I buy would powers itself on/off with the Wii.

    I hope to get some replys on my question.
    Thank you so much!
