    i read your guide but the thing is, i wanna keep my drive as NTFS, not to format it as FAT32 though. i know that usbloader gx have NTFS support so it should be possible to get it working like that right? , does it need a CIOS or one of hermes CIOS or something to load it up as NTFS?

    Cile was referring to the section about installing backups to the HDD (it works for both NTFS and FAT32). I don't recommend using NTFS or usb loader GX though (just my opinion).
    Damn I suck!!!!

    that guide is not available yet, nightstah must have forgotten. (It is very similar to the FAT32 guide).

    I don't recommend using GX with FAT32 or NTFS (or at all, ha) as I have had mixed results. Use Cfg or Wiiflow if you are going to use NTFS.

    FAT32 supports more things then NTFS (nand emulation, HBC apps) so that is why I prefer FAT32.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    ok i did what it said in the guide on transferring, it still didnt show up on usbloader gx :|

    EDIT: the backup manager even saids that the games are in my drive too.

    soooo... any ideas??!?!! i think its because of the usbloader gx because i transfered them properly and the loader just wont show the game up!!!

    GX wont read of NTFS drive(i tried a few) and you dont want to use GX with NTFS or FAT32 drive it will easily corrupt it...

    If you use CFG v60 you can rip game through it to ntfs in .wbfs format or Iso format

    does wii flow can load up from NTFS? i heard from krank it could

    ok i tried CFG usbloader and it STILL doesnt show up the games! i already have isos in my NTFS folder and its said partition not found, i selected my drive and no games shown up, i transferred them with the wiibackup manager correctly though, why isnt it working.....

    and i cant rip the games because i dont have the disks anymore.
