    Question Media Player Confusion

    Hello everyone,
    Just a quick question if you don't mind:

    1) I am aware that USBLoader can be used to display cover art, is there a way to show cover art for movies? I read earlier that WiiMC is a handy media player to use but after checking its website I couldn't spot a cover art option. Its for my child who isn't great at reading just yet - so is there an application that does such a thing?

    Cheers,

    Never looked into it myself, but that'd be the media player to use. A cursory search says "no" (for movie art) when I just checked.

    A netflix type interface would be cool, but unfortunately I havent found or heard of any app that does that either. If one would happen to surface I would love to hear about it.

    awh well, thats a shame. Just wish I had the time/knowledge to even consider trying to create one.
    Thanks for your replies, anyway

    A regular media player does much more than a Wii, especially for a kid.

    This is true! Although WiiMC is going to have to do me for now, I'm skint!

    I do have another quick question though:
    I haven't had the chance to put any of my ISO's onto my hard drive - but I did read somewhere that the full hard drive has to be formatted to a WBFS before games can be used from it.. is this correct?
    Would I need to buy 1 hard drive for movies and another for games?

    and also, are plug 'n' play hard drives compatible?
    my Wii runs pretty slow as it is - I figured it could only get slower if it is powering a hard drive..?

    And while we're on the subject billyhome - are you aware of a media player with coverart? thats relatively cheap?

    All input is appreciated guys.

    Look in the Recommended Guides section, your questions are of an elementary nature.
