Hey Wiihacks ppl,
Good to be here, very informative site!
Just finished the wiihacks guide to hacking 4.3 and it all went well. Very luckily I already had Indiana Jones
Next step is to get my external Iomega USB 750GB drive ready and use that.
Read some info on which format to use, fat32 seems the way to go, is that right?
Thanks again for a cool site.

FAT32 is probably the easiest to manage. If you look below you can find a couple different of options.

Thanks for that, the easiest to manage is what I will need!
More quick questions I havent found the threads for....yet:
Is there a list of what NTSC games work for PAL wii's, or is it best to avoid and stick to PAL only? I have set priiloader to region free everything, dont know if that helps or not?
Also, are there any games out there to avoid as they cause problems? I notice some games have their own threads...
Finally, after completing the 4.3 guide, I left the Indiana Jones pwns save game in the wii memeory, my son later played the original again, loaded that save game pwn and somehow crashed the wii.....I deleted the saved game and all seems fine now, I dont need that save game again do I?
Thanks again, still waiting to decide where to put 700GB of movies that are on my ext usb hdd so i can use it for wii stuff.
