Ok as anyone knows, your Wii just simply does not have that much memory. I mean with all the channels that Nintendo made for free download, (everybody votes, nintendo, check mii out, etc.), and all those vc games that everyone loves, it's amazing that anyone has any memory left for wii games! Think about it, the free wii channels range from 100 to 250 blocks and the vc and wii ware games range from 80 (?, super mario bros) to 250 blocks! (around that for paper mario). Grant you can always backup your vc save game files on your sd card then delete them, then redownload them through wii shop, whenever you want to play them again, but what a hassle!!!!! I'm sure Nintendo is aware of this 'memory crisis', and has took this into consideration for upcoming accessories. I mean it would just be completly insane for them not to!!!!! My only question is where would this 'external hardrive be mounted or placed on the Wii console? Could it go on the back through the USB ports or the top through the gamecube mem. slots? (which I think would be the more logical decision). but I think the most logical decision would be for the wii to access game memory/channels/vc&ww games through the sd card via a new firmware update. Because if you think about it, you would need a new firmware update for a 'external hardrive' anyway, so why not for the sd card. My only concern is what kind of bans or blocks would come with the new firmware update for homebrew applictions. But sooner or later people are going to have to decide between the newest nintendo applications or accessories, or homebrew. So please reply with your thoughts about this, or what you think about this 'memory, firmware, homebrew' crisis.
