Hi. Just an idea for an application, I've no idea whether it'd be possible or not, but it doesn't seem too impossible.
Basically it's a dol that will search for your connected iPod through USB (like USBLoader GX searches for your HDD) and then once it's found the device it will come up with controls on the screen to control the iPod.
Basically like using your TV as an iPod dock and using your WiiMote+Wii as the Remote.
Good idea? Possible? Already been done? I don't know
Just posted as I thought it'd be nice.

Sounds rediculous to me. There is actually a media player you can use on the wii anyway. The coding involved in getting a nintendo machine to talk to an apple device, when there's already a decent music player out there already.

well, i have to say, while it would be cool, i think it is very impractical, and that coders time could be spent on better things for the wii, but thats just my opinion. Now having said that, you should check out this website.

Someone has already gotten a wiimote and an iphone to communicate with one another... so i guess anything is possible

I think there are open source libraries for iPod library format and like that. MPlayer-Ce can already read iPod's memory, it just cannot read the library format. All the songs can be played, but they are named wrong and all. But I think MPlayer-CE authors have a lot more important things to do than that.

    I just ordered one these, got tired of bunch of external drives for dif game systems game backups (Some require FAT32, some NTFS), so wanna combine them

  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    just use a usb or a sd card
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    its more small
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    in physical size
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Lol
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Thought about one of those but I don't really use hdds like that

  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Does it cap out at a certain tb
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    no, i can switch to which drive I want to access with a button on it, I have 4 2tb and 1 4tb, all dif formats, so will work good for me
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    So you could have a petabyte with it
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    You made me go back and look, it says 32tb max per drive. It will be nice when setting up game systems, I can carry one enclosure around, instead of grabbing the right Ext hdd for, say Xbox360 games
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    So about 128tb still more than you'd ever need
    +1
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I thought about just buying a new ext hdd 12tb like you shown, then format multiple partitions on it, but I'm lazy.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Buy 4 won't have to

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    It was only $75 so still cheaper than a new drive. And less hassle. It would take forever to copy everything over also.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    You take forever

    Dusting and cleaning those windows take forever, and I can never get those stains out of her bed sheets. And that damn doorbell ringing all the time, men coming and going constantly

    She's a woman that gets things done most have big strong men over to accomplish things

    I like retroarch, once you set it up completely, it's cool. Artwork, summary, and screen shots for all your games is a nice touch. It's basically a organizer for all your emulators/games.

  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
