    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?
