    Ok from my experience with my 1TB HDD (1000GB) I had it formatted to wbfs about 2months later it stopped working and it wouldn't pop up on my computer. I've seen threads regarding wbfs formats on big storage devices, they seem to kill big storage units.. they say you should format it to ntfs to run the games since the format allows you to use it without a program (wbfs manager for example..), Just giving a heads up.

    It also depends on the model of the hard drive and what not if it'll work with your Wii.

    Check here to see if it will: USB Compatibility List

    Yes you can use it but it would only be used strictly for Wii games. So if you want to use it for something else then you would have to format it :/

    Like Andres said, for a storage unit of that size, it would be more convenient to just make a partition on an NTFS formatted unit. That way you can store other things besides games and you're not wasting space.

    WBFS formatted drives has been outdated for a while, you can run games from a NTFS or FAT32 drives now.
    You can also just run the games as an ISO with CFG and USB GX instead of converting them to a WBFS file.

    Which is easier in my opinion, because I like to store movies on my HDD also.

    I convert all my games to wbfs files except for the COD games to save space. I say format your drive to ntfs, its a lot easier that way

    Use partitions, have a WBFS partition (if you want) and one NTFS, or just two NTFS partitions etc. You can use the HDD for your Wii and computer then.
    Just don't use the FAT systems.
