    USB hubs & power draw

    I could have just seen the Wii powering down if too many devices were chained to the hub. USB may be a universal standard but there is only a max power draw standard and not a universal minimum power standard`

    I remember I tried to charge an iPod shuffle I got for cheap in my Wii, and it reformatted it into something awful. I was not able to reformat it and now I don't know where it is.

    LOL where totally off topic now but yeh ipods aren't all that great before i lost it last week i had a Samsung MP3 player and it was freakin awesome

    Now back on topic I don't think that most people will plug enough devices into the Wii to have a negative effect on it most devices i could imagine plugged in is like 5 or so.

    Please PM me before adding me!

    Well for a (potential) external HD, it will likely have a discreet power supply, and if you have a concern about power draw (I agree about the inconsistency with power consumption of devices) - just purchase a powered hub.

    I've been chuckling at the Wii migrating from this small, slick design to this Frankenstein's monster with adapters, hubs, HD's and all sorts of things hanging off it
