Connecting the ASUS to the Wii gives a very short music-sound through the speakers followed by the Blue Ray drive spinning up.
Though, I don't seem to find any options to access the hardware through the Wii interface... (I don't own the Wii; try'n to see if it will work for my girlfriend).
Would I need a 'homebrew' solution? Does one exist for external USB drives?

I don't have a Wii and have never done this, but I have found this article that seems to detail what you are trying to do. I didn't read much of it but you can figure it out I'm sure. It is step by step directions after all.
