Complete re-setup of HDD for use of WBFS/GC/Emulation - Clarification required
I've been around for a while and recently just started using a HDD. I am very pleased with the speed and use of the USB Loader GX. Originally I formatted the drive (2TB) to WBFS and have loaded my games onto the system. I love the fact I don't need the DVD's anymore. Now, pulling out the case of gamecube games I have, i'd like to do the same. I have run into some speed bumps and I am slowly learning and correcting errors. So, please follow with me.
1: I am removing all WBFS fomatted wii titles off the HDD to my PC.
2: I plan on re-formatting the HDD to FAT32. (as I was told this is what you need to run GC and emulation from the HDD - RIGHT???)
3: Recopy back all the WBFS format games back onto the HDD using Disk Manager.
4: Create a games folder in the root directory for gc titles.
Big issue....ripping GC DVD's.
The only way I figured out was to use "DVD Dumper" through the Homebrew channel, over WIFI to the PC, saving as an ISO. Then using DiscEX convert it so it can be placed within the GAMES folder on the HDD. Assuming this works, I can play my GC games finally with HDD?
5: Emulators? I have them in the homebrew channel now but, all running of a SD card. I want to go HDD for the storage.
6: ISO emulation games...PSX, Saturn, Sega CD
Next step, I own over 110 Sega CD titles, I see the updated Sega Emu has Sega CD support. I wonder how to go about this? Assuming I can rip using the old CDRwin program. That works with PSX titles and hybrid CDs.

I plan on my wii to emulate and run all the old school things I crave!
Thanks in advance...
