    So I was searching around for a small / slim USB storage device to use incase this ever does work.

    Anyone else find anything that doesn't require a power adapter? I would like it if it were slim, since I bought this Wii backpack and it's rather small.

    Here's what I found so far, looks to be pretty cool

    Ya that's pretty portable and I saw some other ones like that with smaller capacity but 80GB is alot for something that size.

    The one I posted in the link actually comes with a remote control since it's made for multimedia purposes. Thought that was kinda cool.

    I would use a USB hard Drive (faster) if it worked which it doesn't

    I have tested my 2.5 inch 40GB external Drive in both Fat32 and NTFS with no success with or without my 2GB SD card in the slot but i expected that why would clicking on the SD slot "tab" as mentioned before cause the Wii to look at the USB ports? Software update would be required to add a setting to check the USB ports for Storage

    if this is possible would be great way to transfer channels and VC games to PC for backup on CD or DVD in case of system failure

    Yea, this is something I anticipate them doing sometime in the future. It only makes sense, since the internal storage is only 512MB. Hence the topic of which piece would you actually use / buy? :cool:
