It depends on the emulators and programs. Especially with the emulators...a few will run off of a HDD but quite a few lack USB support.
I've been searching for a way to do away with my sd after installation of homebrew. I want to use my usb to load my emulators and homebrew, and even my usb loaders. I thought that i could just copy the directories and everything would work fine but im having problems. How can i properly get this done?
Are the ones in your guide hdd supported?im only asking because my nephew doesn't have an sd card in his wii yet he launches homebrew, wiiflow, etc straight from his hdd.
From my two emulator guides thus far:
Can run on USB:
FCE Ultra GX
Genesis Plus GX
Visual Boy Advance GX
SDL MAME Wii
Can't run on USB:
I re-read your original post and though of something. If you set them up on a SD and then copied them over you'll have to reconfigure their paths in the options because they are set to the SD card. If you set them up on a USB device to start with they should automatically find and set the right directories when you launch the first time.
ok great i am going to try that out right now and let you know if that was the problem...( I run into a problem, whenever i run homebrew and try to load app from my usb, they do not appear...)
