Okay, here's the schmeal. I love USB Loaders. Fast, takes up little space as compared to discs, and I can view my library in one go. What I WANT to do, is buy a dedicated 2.5" HDD (Around 150GB), powered by USB, and put it INSIDE the wii. Of course, the small aesthetic blemish of usb cable(s) coming out the wii and plugging into the usb port(s) might look silly, but it'd be incredibly hadny. Since I never use the disc drive anymore, and that takes up some space, can you rip that bugger out? Or will the wii simply go "AHHHHHHH" and not function? And if you're worried about file transfers, there's FTP over wifi. Unless I'm terribly mistaken.
