    External USB hard drives?

    people have discussed running homebrew games and stuff off of an SD card, right?
    I was wondering if I could do the same things with an external USB hard drive (like my ipod in disk mode) as I could with an SD card, like game saves, photos, and homebreww stuff

    any help would be appreciated

    Does anyone think that external drives might become part of the Wii feature?

    Really, all I want is loads of capacity either on an ehdd or an SD card, but I won't pay trazillions for an SD card..! But, then I can't see why I want loads of capacity for my Wii, because I haven't really got anything to put in it - it's not as though the VC downloads I've got take up that much space and I'm not really going to get any more.

    If there's a will....and there always is....

    then hackers will find a way.



    People with wayyyy too much time on their hands always find ways to get shit done.

    My guess is 6 months and someone will have hacked it to the point where people will have their own channels on the Wii (for an in Wii media player) and a way to hook up externals.

    I get the same sort of feeling... I'm sure the Wii is just asking to be hacked to death.

    I like the 'Lord of Jazz & Obscurity' bit... can I utter some Zappa (not that I know any, but...)

    I'm sure that it can be done. Sadly, there's no official practical use for high capacity storage on the wii yet.

    It surely does smell funny...

    Mostly because nearly all of it is underground now. :|

    Maybe they will offer an software update via the VC that will let you purchase the ability to use a HD.
