Also in hard disk settings my partition is shown as fat12 instead of fat32. In windows the partition is showing fat32 though...
    In game its not slower at all so its no big problem if it stays this way.
    In a FAT HDD the smaller the cluster size, the HDD gets slower, so you should make sure it's not less than 32KB cluster size, when my HDD was 64KB cluster size it was faster but DIOS MIOS only works if it's 32KB or less.

    alright that makes sense. Would it be possible to make one fat32 partition with 32kb cluster size for GC games, and one with 64KB cluster size for the rest? as long as the 32kb one is usb1 there shouldnt be a problem right?

    For the WII one partition is better than two and 32KB is recommended, 64KB cluster size could waste space on the HDD.

    So I tried it with one big (1TB) Fat32 partition. GC games working fine, homebrew working fine but not all the wii games were working. I'm now trying with one fat32 partition for GC games and homebrew and one WBFS partition for wii games.
    I'll let you know how it turns out.

    Do I need the source folder to run the loader or is that just for developers?

    If it's necessary, does it have to be on the same device (SD or HDD) as the games I'm going to run? What should the file structure be (like, should I extract gc_devo_src.zip to the root of the SD/HDD)?

    sometimes when you change partition format, you have to remove the .GFG file in usbloader_gx app because it was set to use the WBFS partition or you have to check your settings to make sure they're correct, sometimes replacing the USB Loader apps with a new one gets rid of the issues you could also try wiiflow.
    I have two Wii, 1st HDD (1.5TB) one partition FAT32 for everything.
    2nd HDD (2TB), 1st partition FAT32 for GC games, HBC, emulators, 2nd partition NTFS for WII games and WiiMC .
    HBC, emulators, WiiMC, all WII games, all GC games and all USB Loaders( newest versions of USB Loaders and forwarders) works perfect with both HDD.
