games vanish on fat 32 drive
Not sure if thisis right forum but hope someone can help.
softmodding a wii for a friend and everything seemed ot go fine my hard drive works great on it
so she had her drive and i formated it to fat32 and set it as primary partition active with no problems.
copied a couple of my games over from my hard drive to test it and plugged it in to wii. usb configurable loader booted up fine but didn't show any games.
i installed kirby from disc and that showed up fine.
plugged it back into computer and all the game but kirby were gone.
booted up wii backup manager and copied games back to her drive from mine
and it shows up fine in manager and on my computer
rebooted her hardrive by powering off and on
and again all games but kirby were gone.
formated it to ntsf and everything works good games stay up and don't vanish. but she wanted it fat32 for the extra options it offers.
anyone have a idea why this is happening?

Hmm shouldn't you be ripping the games from you friends original discs?
yes but quicker as i also have them on my drive. kirby takes 20 minutes to rip from disk copy from my drive 2-3 minutes others are same
and just never seen this happen before so wondered why
