    I hope this belongs here:

    Good news - Now there is a 4tb hard drive that works on the Wii.

    Bad news - I can not put it where it belongs, I would have to drop it down into 'other' because the highest available section is 2tb. If it is possible for a user like myself to add a new 4tb section I don't know how.

    I added the three ending Seagate drives a few months back when I was upgrading - now I wanted to add the new Western Digital that works... but there is no way for me to add a new 'section' that can be clicked on - I can only modify existing 'sections'

    -----------------===============-----------------
