    Question Wii cheating application that supports usb (fat)

    Hello all, this is my first post. I have recently decided to load homebrew and all of the applications through usb as this is now supported. The only problem I am having is getting cheats. Orcania and various other applications crash as soon as I open them. I was wondering does anybody know how to load cheats through my usb hdd? Thanks in advanced
    Ps. My hd is partitioned into three parts; one wbfs, one fat 32, and one fat 16 (for loading hbc). I am looking to use the application in conjunction with usb loader gx.

    You are loading all your HBC through a FAT16 drive?

    Which drive is the active partition, why on earth would you have both a FAT32 & FAT16 drives, and whoever told you that FAT16 was preferred over FAT32 was telling you porkies, and now you have drives & partitions that the Wii will be confused with, as it was never meant to have USB Drives attached, never mind ones with multiple partitions.

    My advice, take with a pinch of salt until someone suggests alternatives ofc, would be to:

    Back up FAT32 & FAT16 drives to your PC

    Remove FAT16 partition

    Incorporate the FAT16 free space into the FAT32 partition

    Mark as active the new FAT32 partition

    Copy back to FAT32 all the stuff you backed up in the first place

    Now run your HBC & Apps.
    Please remember your manners - say Thank You if someone helped , it doesn't hurt

    Thank you for the advice. I read that fat 16 was preferred when doing some research. It was on some other forum; think I will stick with advice from wiihacks in future. Is it okay to have two partitions one being wbsf and the other fat 32. Or should I just revert to using sd?

    FAt16 is only ever useful for some memory cards that are having difficulty being read on some devices that FAT32 cards failed on, it really has no place on USB Hard Disks,

    And yes:

    . Is it okay to have two partitions one being wbsf and the other fat32
    Some will even recommend that as the best option even.
