    I have a WD 80GB portable drive formatted FAT32. The Wii does not recognize it.


    The Digg article where this rumor originated:

    NOBODY IN THAT CONVERSATION HAS USB HDD WORKING

    Just because some people can not get it to work, doesn't mean it doesn't work. There are several people here who have it working, so I would suggest contacting them if you are getting stuck.

    There is a really good post by Vagrant (I think), on how to hook it all up - I would suggest having a look for that .


    Write like a four year old and I'll treat you as such Haz, proudly supporting correct use of English and grammar on the forums.
    Think before posting Ask a dumb question and prepare to be owned.

    FYI - Internet is always a capital I. Look it up!

    I do not believe for one second that ANYONE has an HDD working with the Wii. *Maybe* perhaps a USB flash key if the key`s internal controller is the same that the Wii SD card reader uses.

    Also, contrary to what others have posted, memory is not "added" to the Wii`s system blocks. It simply allows for the SD tab to become available for backup purposes.

    for The Idiots That Still Think This Will Work. . .it Won't; Just Because It's Usb Does Not Negate The Fact That It Still Needs Drivers To Work. Unlike A Windows Environment That Has Tons Of Drivers, The Wii Only Has A Very Limited Set Of Drivers Placed On The Machine By Nintendo To Support Nintendo Hardware. Nintendo Can Choose To Do A System Update With Some New Drivers At Some Later Point, But Until They Do You Cannot Use A Usb Hard Drive Or Jump Drive.

    Your post does not negate the fact that you are a dick.
