    External Harddrive on the Wii, got it to work?

    Yeah, so I know this topic has been brought up, but has anyone actually got an external harddrive or USB jumpdrive to work on the Nintendo Wii? I read some stuff about formatting the drive to FAT32 and then Wii would pick it up as an SD card, but that's not the case with my experimenting!

    Any luck with anyone else?

    The whole picking it up as an SD card was a hoax/rumor that the guy who started it admitted to lying.

    It really wouldn't make sense if they didn't. Why are you so sure they won't?

    "that" meaning what he just said, which was that they will.

    So you misread.

    hmmm...how are you so sure though vagrant? why would Nintendo put support for external harddrives/jump drives later? they would only be used for movies or music right? and if that were the case why not just make the Wii be able to read CD's and DVD's? otherwise, it would just leave the Wii open for someone to find a way to emulate games on it

    well, atleast thats all i can think of. I'm half asleep and hopped up on cough syrup, and its 3AM here so I may not be thinking everything as thoroughly as I would want to

    -SpideyKonfusion x_X
    WiiFriendCode w = 6223 1629 4659 6835;
    boolean added = true;
    if (added) {
    System.out.println("Make sure to PM/IM me your Wii FriendCode so that I can add you too!");
    }
    else
    System.out.println("-SpideyKonfusion ^_^");
    // I don't care if you don't like my sig or how I end my comments...seriously...i dont
