    Usb loader gx & partions

    Ok guys here is my problem I have an seagate expansion 500gb usb drive. I initially set this drive up 250gb for wii games(it works great got it for real cheap) and 250gb for regular computer stuff. I have since decided to just put the whole thing for my wii. SO what I did is clears all the stuff off of the side I was using for windows , formatted the second part to work on the wii. I put some games on it already and it ready to work but I cant figure out if there is a way to switch between partions on usb loader gx, i read that this is possible but cannot figure it out can anyone please help me Can anyone help please

    I have never heard of this being possible. If you could find a neat HDD manager that can merge the two partitions into one, that would be the solution

    I just answered this elsewhere here, with this:

    The problem you will have is one partition will be active and the other not.

    imo, your best option is to back up to hard disk, delete the 2 partitions, reformat as one partition, put the games back on, carry on as normal.

    It will save you many hours of heartache later on down the line.

    Maybe others will offer a different advice route, you can wait till others answer until you make your decision.
    Please remember your manners - say Thank You if someone helped , it doesn't hurt
