look at the fat32 hdd guide.... (search for it) and my wii reads the ntfs hdd so i think its reading your WBFS partition first and failing....

Set the NTFS partition as active and it should work in WiiMC.

my problem is that wiimc works fine as long as the HDD isnt connected but if i connect the HDD and try to load wiimc either from SD or HDD i get the crash code (DSI) error.
My HDD is WD my passport Essential 500GB
Partition: Fat32 (active) NTFS and NTFS
all the games and wii files including the Wiimc files are in the active fat32 so what could that be?

Perhaps WiiMC cannot decide which partition to look at. Have you tried to put a movie on a usb stick, you will need to unplug the usb hdd, since it causes WiiMC to crash. Also, make sure you are using the correct forwarder version for the WiiMC version you are using.
I did some testing, I plugged two usb sticks in to my Wii and WiiMC only recognized one of them.

Ok I figured out how to stream from mac 10.6.6 to wii, the process was pretty easy..I updated wiimc to version 1.1.2 iOS 58. On mac go to system preference, sharing, check file sharing, then click + in shared Folders add folder were movies are, then click options, then I checked share files and folders using SMB, also checked on for my account, then clicked done. Now to check you ip go to apple icon in corner and click about this Mac, click more info, then click network, and your ip should you should be able to see your ipV4 address write this done..now your done on Mac. Now on wiiMC go to settings go to settings, network, add SMB share, put display name any will do, then add your ip, and then share name is name of folder where all your movies are stored, this is case sensitive.then your administrative username and password, usually prompted when you make changes on your mac. And that should be able...thanks again!

Can I split my avi files for wiimc to recognize on my fat32 partition something like wii game manager does for games?

why do you need to split your avi files, when converting a video file to avi it gets compressed. I cannot see why you would need an avi larger than 4GB.

I have a couple avi files that are 7GB, therefore cannot transfer them to my fat32 partition. Id rather not use my ntfs partition for wii activity as that is where I keep my pc backups at.

There are ways of splitting an avi, and you can view a split avi on WiiMC. When the first part is done playing you may have to start the second part manually. Maybe a video editing program can split the avi.
I use DVDfab and I think that will split a video file but I never had a use for it. OR, you could compress your avi to be smaller than 4GB, that way it will fit on your FAT usb hdd without splitting.
I watch all my movies from SMB shares, all my movies are on an external usb hdd that is connected to my PC.
