    the only reason why i would want a new hard drive for the wii, is so that people stop making pointless threads complaing about it

    If Nintendo would send out an update that would allow SD card memory to be saved to (and accessed from) directly, then we wouldn't have this problem. Nor would we have the problem of mechanical failure of a hard drive.

    Those of you who think you need a hard drive: just how much additional GBs do you really need, seriously? Could it be handled by the capacity of available SD cards?

    Wii need a hdd

    Well ya we could wait for a update for the wii so it can read off of the sd card but i dont think it would work because it does not read off the sd card that fast ar so i herd. but the wii hard drive could be like a flash drive(jumpdrive) what ever but be like 12Gb a bout that big or have 3 sizes
    1.Not a big gamer size512Mb
    2.Kinda of a gamer 1GB
    3.A Big gamer 12GB
    somthing like that to the usb port

    A harddrive is not Nintendos 'style' they are strictly Memory cards, Old school till the end.

    but the sd card reader thing is not that fast tho. it's slow. it took 5 min to copy paper Mario 64 to it and then i copped it to my computer 5sec's it's the way they have the data limit is. it's is cheap piece of sd reader. or just get a usp card reader and that is 460Mb because that is how fast usb is.

    Thanks your like the 7 person that told me that. cool
    But i think the sizes should be
    1 not much of a gamer 512mb
    2.Kind of a gamer 1-2Gb
    3.Major gamer 12gb
    and you can run the games off of the hdd
    but the one with the sd card makes no sence because it only get 10mb sc to it or something like that

    Let's settle this debate

    Even for those who don't care about there being an HD for the Wii, it does need some sort of external storage, and the Secure Digital card is not going to cut it

    The Wii hard drive dosen't have to be a litteral hard drive with magnetic coated spinning platters, it could be a box full of PROM chips (or whatever the chip is used as the internal storage in the Wii) that connects to the Wii via USB, this could be a portable flash drive sticking out the back of the Wii (even though I would personally think an enclosed box would be better), it could be phantom powered or require an external power source, though phantom powered would be better, so it dosen't matter how it's made, as long as it stores data and connects via USB

    Think of what the Wii's internal memory is going towards, if you are thinking "well, I don't play VC games, all I do is play Wii games and make Miis", that is still using the internal memory, so in all you play is Wii games, and you play a lot of Wii games, even you may be in need of some external storage, some things that use the Wii's internal memory are...

    *Wii Ware Channels (This does not include VC games, this only includes channels like the internet channel, weather channel, news channel, etc.)

    *VC games

    *Miis (yes, you can store them in the little memory the Wiimotes have, but they still stick on the Wii's internal memory until erased, the more Miis you have, the less space you have on memory, even though it dosen't take up that much space)

    *Game saves (whenever you play a Wii game and you save, you're saving to the Wii's internal memory, some games take more space than others, and if you have a large collection of Wii games, you have a large chunk of used space in the internal memory)

    *Random channels (you may have some channels that don't fit into any of the categories above, no matter what channel it is, it is using the internal memory)

    *Misc. (If I have missed anything, or if there is other things that are saved on your Wii, chances are it is saved on your Wii's internal memory)

    So even if you don't download a single VC game, the other use alone is enough to use up all your internal memory requiring you to use some sort of external memory/storage, and for those of you who do download a lot of VC games, but you think you have a lot of space because you have blocks in the quadruple digits, dosen't mean it's going to be that way for long (I learned the hard way, and now, not only do I not have enough space for another N64 game, I am limited on what Wii games I can save)
