    Fat32 File size Limit

    Just ordered a 32GB SD card from ebay, *hoping it it will work* for games.

    Just realized, If Fat32 has a 4GB File size limit, and ALL Wii games are 4.4GB uncompressed. how is it possible to launch games from SD?

    You format the card to wbfs. Most games are less the 4g, some usb loaders support fat.

    Every disk image is 4.4g, but most of that is rubbish data and updates. Most games are 1-2g. You use a wbfs utility program to move files to and from the wbfs partition from your pc.

    For this tutorial any HDD will work? I have a WD My Book Essentail 1TB HDD. If this works then great, I will not need to buy a SD Card to manage my games.

    I am getting my own Wii today...YEPEE
