    So the problem ended up being my HD needed to be scanned and fixed by Windows. Of course it was the last thing I tried lol, but I do think that the softmod guides could all use a small reminder about doing so every now and then. It can clearly lead to some strange problems. Thanks again for the help, and the great guide!

    I have no issues with my WD passport 320 formatted as fat32. Not sure what the issues are. Just follow the guide and you should be all set.

    Ok, I've read all 19 pages of this thread and my mind is now a blob.... So my question is, I have a 500GB Seagate HDD. I mostly got this for backing up my Wii games, however I would also like to keep some files for our laptop (i.e. pics, docs, etc.) backed up as well. I plan on going the FAT32 route, do I need to partition my HDD for both uses or not? Thanks in advance for any advice!

    You can use fat32 for both. My recommendation would be to make a single fat32 partition & be done with it. FAT32 is the most compatible format for wii usage. The only issue (on the non-wii side) is if you'll be using any non-wii files that exceed 4.x gigs.

    Well, I only want to back up pictures, documents and small videos. Individually they aren't over 4.x gigs. As a group, I don't know. Should I create separate folders for each item and keep the folders under 4.x gigs? Thanks for your quick response Blu!!

    FYI, the 4.x gig limitation is a single-file limitation w/ the FAT32 Filesystem. Wii backups are unaffected because (if you use wii backup manager/etc) the dual layer titles that are bigger than this will be split seamlessly into two files.
