    USB Loader GX & FAT partition

    Newbie question: Is a fat/fat32 partition required for and external hard drive using USB loader GX? I thought I read something somewhere that it is required for box and disc art.

    Thanks

    The HDD needs to be WBFS.... not FAT32 / FAT

    the sd card that you have in the wii needs to FAT32

    As this is your first post here is some info you will need.

    Hi and welcome to WiiHacks mike

    If you need advice or help for anything Wii related you have joined the right site, whether its hard or soft modded.

    Donít be shy, ask if you are stuck, just donít expect other people to do all the work for you.

    Before you start anything, make sure you read the rules go over the tutorials, and most importantly, search before asking questions.

    Make sure you post in the correct areas of the forums.

    Here is the site index wiihacks ultimate index written by ShadowSonic2

    If you are starting from scratch, new 3.1-4.1 written by Dogeggs

    If you already have Homebrew, upgrade to 4.1 written by Dogeggs

    Donít update to 4.2, but if you are already on 4.2, complete 4.2 guide written by Messie

    2009 Wii Serial numbers after LU3884XXXX and LEH2676XXXX have probably got the new D3-2 chip that prevents playing backup DVD's. They can still use original discs and USB loaders.

    And please do donate to the forum if you are able so we can go on helping the Wii community.

    I hope you have a great time here at WiiHacks, and increase your knowledge of all things Wii.

    A FAT32 partition on the USB disk is definitely not required; by default that content is stored on your SD card. If I understand correctly though, it is possible to setup a FAT32 partition on your harddisk to store such content on instead of on the USB; in fact the newest releases can load games from FAT32 if they're stored as .wdfs files so you don't necessarily need a WDFS partition anymore.
