    at those kind of capacities it might be better to get a small portable hard drive.

    Yeah, I think you’re right. So far, I looked at quality 1TB thumbsticks, and they go for $300+

    I think I’ll buy a WD Passport 1TB and try it out.

    Thanks.

    Remember you need that one extra file for USB hard drives, it’s downloadable from the USB-GDROM website.

    So, I got GD-ROM working with a 4GB USB Stick, but when I try my WD Passport 1TB. I formatted it to FAT32 with a 64kb clustersize with Fat32Formatter, but when I start my dreamcast, it gets stuck at the home screen saying “Please wait while disc is being checked”.

    I wonder if I have an incompatible harddrive because I asked mnemo and he doesn’t even know since he only uses sticks. Has anyone had any luck with other harddrives? If so, what harddrive did you buy so I can buy them for my dreamcast?
