Thread: Partition of USB External Dard Dirve

  1. #1

    Partition of USB External Dard Dirve

    From treats and tutorials, it seems that:

    - "USB Loader" needs WBFS format and <500GB;
    - "GeeXBox" supports FAT/FAT32/NTFS;
    - "Homebrew" needs FAT/FAT32;

    I wonder if any of you have ever partitioned your USB HD into 3 partitions:

    - one WBFS for "USB Loader" to play games;
    - one FAT/FAT32 for "Homebrew" applications / GeeXBox video files and
    - one NTFS for .ISO (>4GB) backups / GeeXBox video files.

    Will this work? Are they going to find the appropriate partition?

    Thanks for your input.

    I have and it works fine. you can also set the FAT32 partition to active so you can use nand emulation with no problems

    Which USB External HD did you use? The comapatibility table doesn't seem to be clear. Many marked HBC/GeeXboX/USB_Loader all work. But the note seem only tested for USB loader.

    Thanks.

    I personally use the Western Digital WD Elements 1 TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive WDE1UBK10000N (not advertising it). I did a ton of research before buying mine and this was the only one that was confirmed that it could go above 500gb per partition. You can actually use the full 1tb even if you wanted to.
