    Partitioning Your USB Hard Drive

    First off let me apologies in advance if I have created a thread in the wrong part of the forum.

    I have a 500GB USB HDD and I am wondering whether it's possible to have two partitions on it so that the Wii can read from both partitions.

    I want to split the Hard Drive into 2 Partitions, one partition for games and the other partion for video files and music. I have "WBFS Manager 3.0" which formats the Hard Drive so it's possible to play games. My question is is there a way to partition the Hard Drive so that it can play games and be recognised as a USB Device for playing video and music files?

    Appreciate your help and advice with this.

    Or u could have it formatted to fat32 and have only one partition for everything. I'm sure there's a guide! It might be in the guides and tutorials section maybe.

    The fat32 guide for hdd loading can do that without having to use wbfs for a partition.
