    Setting a partition to active is telling it what partition to boot from ( [ Do not try this example ] Ex: You set the 'C:\' partition on your harddrive to be active, this is the partition your computer will boot from, it means to set the bootable partition ), and there can be only one active partition per device. Why Dios Mios needs it, I'm not entirely sure as I've never looked into it or looked at the source. To set a partition as active, it depends on what software you use. If you use Disk Management that comes with Windows, you right-click the partition of the device and click 'Mark Partition as Active'. I personally recommend using EaseUS Partition Master, with this tool you right-click on the partiton of the device, click 'Set active', and then click Apply.

    Looks fine to me.

    If I spelled something wrong, I'll just blame it on auto-correct

    Well I'm stumped, the only other reason I could think of is that the device isn't formatted to FAT32 with 32kb clusters, but it wouldn't have reached the splash screen like you said it did eariler in the thread.

    Create a 1-byte text file on that hard drive, then right-click it and choose properties to see how much space it takes up on disk.

    If it reports 32,768 bytes, then your hard drive is formatted correctly.

    i tried my 32gb cruzer glide also and it will crash my wii. or give me a black screen. but after 1 or 2 tries it will boot the game. i was thinking for the time being is it a good idea to burn a game. i would use neogamma with a verbatim dvd+r datalifeplus. just until i can find a usb that has full support for this. is the dvd method alot slower, like they were originally on disc anyway
