DIOS MIOS v2.0 question
I have DIOS MIOS v2.0 installed and im now running Game-Cube and Wii games from the same USB drive. My question is i had to format the drive to FAT32 with 32KB cluster size to run Game-Cube games but is this ok to also run Wii games with ?

Yes, but you may want to upgrade to DIOS MIOS 2.4, it has quite a few improvements.

if you've Wii games previously stored in wbfs format, convert the whole thing into FAT32 format with "wfbs2FAT"

Today's cIOS's (d2x, Hermes, etc.) mean you don't really need to keep WBFS partitions anymore. They'll be more than happy to read image files (in this case, WBFS/WBF1 image files) directly from a FAT32 partition (they'll even do NTFS partitions with a little tweaking, though FAT32 is preferred). This makes them much easier to manage. It also means they can co-exist on the same partition as GameCube ISOs (the loaders tend to keep them in separate directory trees). Whether you convert your WBFS partitions into files or re-image the discs from your loader is up to you (IIRC the newer ones compatible with DIOS MIOS will also image GC discs--though they'll come out raw and could stand shrinking).
DIOS MIOS uses FAT32 only - no NTFS support.
