I apologize if this isn't the right thread to ask, but thought I'd take a shot. With the USB GDROM, what's the consensus on the best format (CDI or GDI) and are folks using a USB stick or an externally powered USB hard drive? Also, is there a preferred structure for the games? Is the best format to just extract the GDIs to their own folders and then go into each, select the GDI file and go?
I'm trying to prep a drive while my DC Digital is being installed. Thanks in advance for any help!

Also: While the USB GDROM only supports USB2 for speeds, has anyone plugged a USB 3.0 device into it and does it work? Thanks!

EDIT: Looks like GDI is the way to go. It also looks like USB 3 will work. I'm going to see if I can jam a small HD in there with a sata cable and run off the USB GDROM power. Thanks!
