    hey guys!

    i got a question for ppl that might know this, i got my Wii chipet just recently with the Wiikey and instead of burning the games onto the disk, is it possible if i could use an external Hard drive to backup the wii games on it and run it on the wii, like from an SD card but instead i use a HD. If its possible that would save me time and i would like to know how to do it.

    Cheers!

    I havent heard of anything like this and I dont think its been done (yet).

    I know the ps2 had a hard drive loader (HDL) and I know from personal experience that while it works fairly well its not perfect. Mod chips had better compatability with most games.

    sd is for something like homebrew probably, since regular SD cards do not exceed 4 megs yet, SDHC does, but the wii I do not think reads SDHC (different format). The image files for wii games exceed 4 gigs. So I dont really think thats possible. Now for the external hd, I do not believe that anything reads the usb slot yet.
