    You are going to have to be more specific as to what you are trying to do.

    I tested the program on my system, and the only partition that I select that does not show a "delete option" is my main system partition on my main hard drive. All other partitions are showing a delete partition option.

    So make sure you have the correct partition selected.

    And in most cases, you don't want to delete and recreate a partition (only really need to do that if you have a drive with multiply partitions already and want to create one large one). If you already have one partition on a device, you can just select to reformat it instead of delete and create a new one. Reformatting is the only way to get 32k clusters option for GC loading. Creating a new partition will result in 64k clusters.

    Seems like if that was an option it would have said so in this guide, don't ya think?

    [Guide] Fat32

    I having difficulty trying to figure out which part of this instruction I follow. The whole reason why I hacked my wii is because my optical drive failed and will no longer load Discs. I was under the impression that I could install games to USB thereby bypassing the drive altogether, however it seems you still need it operational to use utilities like USB Loader. Is their way to extract the image from my mac directly to my USB drive? Please Help!!! Anybody!

    I successfully followed this guide to the letter....and it is very good by the way. When I get to the "Ripping/Installing to your HDD" it's a different story, I have a couple of different options of course, but I use the "USB Loader GX" I put the USB drive in the Wii and fire up the program the game installs successfully. When I plug it into my Mac and fire up Wii Backup Fusion it shows "no titles". I noticed that I didn't have to create a WBFS folder as USB Loader GFX seems to do that automatically. I opened the WBFS folder that the program created and it shows a .wbfs file instead of a .iso that the guide indicates should be there. Why is there no .iso and what am I missing? Please help!

    .wbfs files are what you should be seeing, in a subdirectory of "wbfs".

    they are not a full rip of the disk, so not .iso files, they have any useless information trimmed off (because like GameCube games, the disk data is on backwards on the disk, so they needed filler to place in the center of the disk, where the disk writing starts in order to get the last block along the outside to have the "start" of the data.

    If you have a Mac, I would suggest looking into Wii J Manager (it's a java front-end with compiled utilities for mac, linux, and windows that do the work, included). Information on that can be found in the NTFS guide, but still properly splits large files so it works just as well on FAT32 drives.

    Thank you for the quick response. So was I reading that part in the guide incorrectly where it talks about opening wii game manager and locating the .iso? I guess that larger question is how do I go from .WBFS -> .iso? I will check out that Wii J Manager. Thank you again for the quick response

    "locating the .iso" is the .iso that you are supplying the program to install the .wbfs version of the file to the hard drive.

    Can I use a multiple partitioned harddrive aslong as one of them is fat32, 32kb clustered, active, primary and such?

    I have configured my hdd and wii years ago and I had made a 100gb 32kb cluster partition. Don't remember how. cmd chkdsk reports 32kb allocation units.

    So what im asking is; is a single partition absolutely necessary for the mauifrog softmod/ fat32 guide? I'm a noob.
