    Ok....so I made up the name, it ain't that awesome but I swear this'll be the last of my crappy tries at a new external hard-drive for the wii (if it ever has one). I hope that you like this new one though because you said with the one I did before that it should be smaller and out of they (you probably didn't say that but I just did it to make a point) anyways I hope you like it and any feedback is appreciated.

    Also I was thinking maybe put a DS cart slot in there as well...just to play on the big screen or do you think that'll be a waste?

    Looks a little small for a HDD.

    I doubt it with what modern technology is coming up with these days this could have no less than 30GB storage. In my opinion.

    That looks great. It looks very well thought out. You should send it to Ninty.

    Thankyou, if one more person says that I might just consider doing it.

    This Hard Disks can have a lot of memory, and also depends on the updates.
    Who knows, maybe someday we will be able to use the 500 GB External HDs with our Wii =D.

    Pointless to have that much but I agree with you, technology these days is fast.

    Screww harddrive, I want flash memory. That stuff takes up so little space. Give me 5Gb of that, a demo download channel, and I'll be happy!

    Wait and see ^_~ . Soon Nintendo will make an update that will include the drivers for us to use 5GB Flash Memories in our Wii =). I can almost assure you that.

    But flash is much more expensive for smaller capacities than the HDDs.

    I would be worried with the HDD falling with suction cups trust me you dont want to get the smallest scratch on todays hard drives. But I like the idea of the HD. Flash memory is cool but more expensive especially above 2 gigs.

    But Flash are more portable.
    I wouldn't like to take a huge 500GB Hard Disk to my friends house...

    30gb for 150 dollars these days, well with retail maybe 200 (that size)
    and ds would be impossible to play on a tv, unless there was some program that showed both screens on the tv
    and then even if that happened you wouldnt be able to know where your stylus is going to tap if you dont look down constantly

    You don't need 500GB... just get a trillabyte or terrabyte anyways that's 300GB in itself and it's no bigger than what we put in out computers today. So don't exadurate on nonsense. And also...I doubt the suction would fall off...not if you put it on properly. And 30GB isn't anywhere near $100 even in Australia it's basically $1 for 1GB, so you're being ripped off.

    If there would be a way to play the DS online, the graphics would look totally distorted, considering the DS screen's size and the screen's size of a TV.

    I agree on the size aspect as half a terrabyte is overkill, hell my computer has 250 gigs and I record my own music, have music editing software, software preamp stuff, etc and I have only used 150 gigs, hell I waste about 50 on my scratch disk but figure Ill always have the room if I decide to have a 24 hour music recording session. For the suction cup in time with the plastic breaking down it would only take a couple of years being exposed to make the suction less reliable.

    Edit: I reread your post and all I said above I still say stands true to my opinion. A terrabyte is 1000GB so I think you were making the inverse point. Maybe IDK heck Im lost

    I'm pretty sure you only need like 5 GB's for a Wii unless they start letting you download Movies.
