    HBC should be installed on your Wii ... you shouldnt have to run HBC from the HD ..

    make sure to install the HBC as a channel ... test it out without any media plugged in ...
    once you have the HBC loaded as a channel on the wii .. you shouldnt have any lag issues ..
    ALL my wii games /emulators/roms are on the HD ... i have experienced no lag ...

    the only thing i've noticed is the more Wii games i put on the HD the longer USB loader takes to load up ...


    and no .. i dont think troy has released the updated channel forwarders yet .. i'm not sure what that combo pack is but i dont think its the latest ones ... when he does finish them and upload them he'll update the first page in that thread to show the download links etc

    do you have the Fat partition before the WBFS?

    And, I was also wondering about a USB hub? has this been tried and if so is it possible?

    i'm not sure what you mean?

    i have a WD 1TB drive ..

    approximately 300GB devoted to the Wii games (wtbs partition or whatever the special partition type the wii reads)
    approximatly 200GB for "emulation"
    that includes everything that would in theory be placed on the SD card
    any wads, channels, wiiware/VC/ roms, etc

    i'm pretty sure that the USB loader still saves the game box art to the SD card so i'm going to start looking for ways around that

    the "emulation" partition is FAT32 .. it has to be in order to be read by the wii if you wanting to load roms etc from it.

    when you look at a partition table, your partitions are in order... so you'd have WBFS then FAT then NTSC or whatever order you want. I'm just asking if you have FAT partition as your first partition

    i was asking in hopes of getting an answer to a simple question. I have over 150 games on my WBFS partition (which is first). I'm not sure you realize how long it would take to transfer that many games ( and movies on my fat32 partition), then reformat, then transfer everything back, then chance it not even working.

    protip: when you plug your external HD into your comp, the drive letters will indicate the order of your partitions. Say you have A: B: and C:, A: would be the first partition. Assuming you know your alphabet, it should be pretty easy to figure out which partition is which

    protip? lol indeed.

    A drive letter can be changed at will and has no bearing on which partition or what type it is assigned to or what order it appears.

    I can assign any letter I want (save for A, B & C as that tends to interfere with system functions on a Windows Machine) to a 3 partitioned drive, so a drive with FAT32 - WBFS - NTFS could be assigned drive letters Z for Fat32, X for WBFS & Y for NTFS.

    But the best way for a Wii 3 partitioned USB HDD is FAT32 - WBFS - NTFS in that order, and choose any letter you want.
    Please remember your manners - say Thank You if someone helped , it doesn't hurt
