    [Guide] Fat32



    Gone has the need to partition your hard drives for the wii. It is now recommended to load via Fat32 which will be discussed here in this guide or ntfs which can be found here



    [spoiler=Guide]This guide is based upon you having an upto date Mauifrog Softmod. In this guide I will show you how to setup a single fat32 partitioned hard drive for all your wii needs eliminating the need for multiple partitions and formats but also the need for an sd card.[/spoiler]

    [Spoiler=Important]I don't want anyone asking were to get Iso's of games or anything remotely linked to piracy, the guide is for the purpose of backing up your legally purchased Wii games for storage and play off of a Fat32 formatted drive. Anyone who asks will have their post removed and will receive an infraction or possibly even banned! You have been warned.[/Spoiler]



    [SPOILER=Things you will need]
    1) A Usb device and it is highly recommended you check out the usb compatibility list

    2) A means of formatting the drive, ie PC, Mac or Linux.

    3) Easeus Partition Manager Home Edition
    [/SPOILER]





    [SPOILER=Chapter 1 - Formatting your Hard drive]

    [SPOILER=Window PC]


    1) Install Easeus Partition Manager Home Edition which you should have already downloaded earlier

    2) Hook your hard drive up to a usb port on your PC and make a not of the drive letter

    3) Run Easeus partition manager

    You should now be looking at something like this:




    4) Select your hard drive by the letter you noted earlier and right click on it then select delete and then ok. (Be sure it is the correct drive as it will be deleted!)

    5) Your hard drive should now be showing as unallocated and should look like this:




    6) Right click on your unallocated partition and select create, you should now have these options:

    * Partition label : Wii - (I always name mine Wii, but it can be named whatever you like)

    * Create as : Primary

    * Drive letter : W - (Again I always use W for Wii, but it can be anything you like)

    * File system : Fat32

    * Cluster size - (for the purpose of running Gamecube games from your hd we will now be formatting to 32kb clusters)
    Note: If the first time you partition your drive there is no option to select cluster size press ok and then right click on the drive again and select format and the option should appear




    7) Size and position

    It should automatically be set like this:

    * Unallocated space should be 0

    * Partition size should be whatever the size of the drive is

    * Unallocated space after should be 0

    * Click ok

    Example:




    8) Set drive as active

    * Right click your hard drive

    * Set active

    * Click ok


    9) Format

    * Navigate to the top left corner under the view tab and click apply

    * Click yes on the pop up window

    * Several seconds/minutes later you should get a pop up saying the operation has been successful

    * Click ok and then exit the program, your drive has been formatted.
    [/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER=Mac OS Formatting - By Narse1979]


    **Big thanks to Narse1979 for this!! Go HERE and Click THANKS!!**

    1 - Connect your USB HDD to the Mac.

    • In some cases an initialize window will pop up when you connect the HDD
    • Click initialize and it will take you into Disk Utility - If it doesn't, then go to Disk Utility
    • In Disk Utility click on your USB HDD - Look at the bottom for "SMART STATUS" - "OK"
    • If it does not say "OK" - Go to Disk Utility --> Click "First Aid" tab --> Click "Verify" --> Click "Repair Permissions"
    • If an error appears click on Repair Permissions again and this error should now be gone




    2 - Select the USB HDD you wish to format from the pane selection on the left.



    3 - Now select "Erase". Keep the same options for the Volume Format as pictured below.


    • Skip this step if your USB HDD is new and go to Step 4



    • If you want to securely delete data from the partition(s) on your USB HDD then click "Security Options" and a pane will pop up.
    • Select the option that best suits you --> Click OK --> Now Click ERASE




    4 - Click the "Partition" tab


    • Select how many partitions you want from the Volume Scheme drop down menu - Choose 1 Partition
    • If you want you can rename the partition - We have gone for "WII GAMES"
    • Select MS-DOS (FAT) from the format drop down menu.




    5 - Now to remove any GPT partitions. Select "Options" and select the option pictured below --- Click OK.



    6 - Click Apply and let Disk Utility format your USB HDD to FAT32.
    [/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER=GNU/Linux]

    Here are instructions on how to format a drive to FAT32 with GNU/Linux by both graphical and textual means. If you prefer to us a GUI, I recommend GParted. It is a very powerful and common tool provided with most distros. If not provided by default, it will probably be available through the distro's package manager. Else you can download the source code of the latest version from here and compile it. If your distro comes with something else (i.e. Kubuntu comes with the KDE Partition Manager), feel free to use that if you wish. If your comfortable going the command line route, everything you need will almost certainly be installed on your system already. If not, you'll need to install dosfstools. For both of these options, you need to be logged into either the root account or an account with administrative privileges.

    Graphical Formatting (With GParted)


    GParted will open up displaying your internal hard drive. Probably called something like “/dev/sda” or “/dev/hda.” It should look something like this:



    Select the drop down list in the upper right-hand corner and select the device that you wish to format (possibly named “/dev/sdb”). It should be easy to find as it will probably be much smaller than your internal hard drive. When in doubt, remove all other devices, refresh the list (Ctrl + R), and then select the only device that isn't your HD.



    Make sure the device is unmounted. Right-click on the long bar that represents you devices file system and click “Unmount.” If that option is grayed out then the device is already unmounted.



    Right-click on file system bar again and select the “Format to >” option. Click on “FAT32.”



    Now click the “Apply” button at the top of the window.



    A final sanity check will pop up and, if every thing looks correct, click “Apply” and wait. If you don't get any errors, you're all set!




    Textual Formatting


    You'll need to know the name of the disk and partition that you're going to format. Open up your preferred terminal emulator and run the following:
    Code:

    fdisk -l
    A list of disks and their respective partitions will pop up. You're internal hard drive will be listed first and will probably be called “/dev/sda” or “/dev/hda.” After that your external drives will be listed (the first one might be “/dev/sdb”). If more than one external drive is listed, the best way to know which one is the correct one is to remove all devices other than the one you want and re-run the command. You'll also need the partition name which is the disk name followed by a number, usually one (i.e. “/dev/sdb1”). You can find out for sure what it is by looking at the disk information displayed in the command (it will be at the bottom underneath the word “Device”)



    Nekt you need to unmount the drive by running this:
    Code:

    umount /dev/xxxy
    Replace “xxx” with the disk name and “y” with the partition number.



    Time to do the actual formatting. Run this:
    Code:

    mkdosfs -v -c -I -s 64 -S 512 -F 32 /dev/xxxy
    Replace “xxx” with the disk name and “y” with the partition number.



    This step is optional, but highly recommended. This will check the file system for errors and, if it finds any, attempt to fix them:
    Code:

    dosfsck -av /dev/xxxy
    Again, replace “xxx” with the disk name and “y” with the partition number. If you don't get any errors, you're all set!

    Awesome writeup Pob! Cheers. One note, gparted is also available as a bootable ISO, so users could go that route as well.

    Very nice write!
    [SPOILER= Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here]Shift_Lock On Forum Issues - Vol. 1

    Disclaimer:
    First I would like to state that this is one persons point of view. It does not reflect this site (wiihacks.com) or any other staff/mod/or admin here. It is solely mine. Now even though a few may have similar points of view this should be taken as one person’s opinion. Also. This DOES NOT reflect all users and noobs here.. Just a select few personality types that pop in time to time. Let’s get started!

    [SPOILER="Outlook On Forum Rules "]Now I realize many of you did not even read the rules and just agreed to them.. Kind of like signing a legal contract without reading the clause that states you just sold your life away… It happens... When it does, YOU are still responsible and held liable for your actions. No matter how much you think its BS... It’s still on you. I for one am among those who did just that when I signed up here... (Shame on me I know) I to did not read them immediately (however I did speed through it to get a general idea)... I was quickly referred to them a few times do to not being thorough enough with “speed reading”...

    [SPOILER="Why we have rules on this site"]The rules here at wiihacks are here for a few key reasons. I’m only going to hit a few.

    Conduct - We know it’s the net, and there are a lot of internet gangsters/bully’s/and plain jack ass’s... We don’t like that here. The ways users conduct themselves reflect the site... We want user to enjoy coming here but respect in general is needed. Flaming and such results in infractions/bans so don’t do it.

    Piracy – This is a big one here, and no one seems to understand... First of all IT IS AGAINST THE RULES OF THE SITE! Which every last one of you members had to agree to follow prior to being a member here. Copyright laws vary from place to place so they are different for others. But we have to follow our copy rights here to protect our site. We DO NOT support piracy and will not assist in it. We don’t want to lose our wonderful site that you as a user come to, to find help. Big brother (the government) and big “N” (Nintendo) may be watching along with a vast amount of other private sectors looking to stop the pirating of copy righted material. Shutting down sites that support it are somewhere at the top of the list to reduce this.

    Personally, I don’t care what you do... I don’t care what your online habits are or how much porn/software/media you download every day. It’s your computer and your life. YOU are responsible for anything that may occur from that. Users who lack a way with words to express themselves in what they are trying to do may get wrongly accused of being a pirate and these things occur: warnings/infractions/bans/threads closed/YouTube videos of dancing pirates/ and many many possible pictures pointing you out.

    We as staff here are obligated to abide by and enforce forum rules. Whether we believe their valid or not. They are in place to protect the site and members of our community. I won’t allow a poor decision result in losing this site.

    Cheating – Play Fair... I support it... Nothing I hate more than losing to a cheater... If I lose I want it to be because the other person was actually better. Cheating takes the fun out of the game... Why make it easier? Do you suck that bad at it? Don’t like the challenge? GET A DIFFERENT GAME! We don’t support cheats here. Users will not be given help on how to become invincible or walk through walls... you want god mode? Unlimited ammo? Go Google it somewhere else. Don’t ask about it here.[/SPOILER]

    There are a lot of users/members that say “this is wiihacks wtf?” or "that’s the point in hacking a Wii”... No it is not….. We assist users in backing up their legally purchased games so they don’t get ruined in the future (we know how kids are)... Before backups I had bought 3 Mario karts! Ridiculous… Anyways, it also allows us to fully enjoy the console and the convenience that some mods add to the system. We make it custom and set it up the way we like it. Kind of like your pc. A lot of users buy the Wii just so they can do that! I will ban anyone who tries to argue that point... Dont be ignorant... [/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “So you Think You’re a Hacker”]Warning: Spoiler below is a rant. [SPOILER= "Shift_Lock's Rant about the tough guys"]Really guy? We are “Modder’s” at best... most users aren’t even that. A hacker would shut down this site with a single code line… Not sit here claiming he’s one arguing about rules and why he needed help... I’m not saying we don’t have members that are real “hackers” but face it... You aren’t one of them... Coders and developers are fantastic people that make all this possible. And some of those guys truly are considered hackers at some level. Now, could they hack the pentagon? Probably not, but maybe. Who knows... lol

    The point of this is for those of you that come on here thinkin you’re hot [nice word]... If you were a hacker you wouldn’t need our help and wouldn’t need to hide behind a proxy or redirect to post your nonsense… Get over yourself and just follow our guides. If you can’t “hack” a Wii, what can you do? Can you hit the logout button? Try It! How about facing your fail and going back to the guides to read some more… Leave the “hacking” to the REAL hackers out there. /end rant[/SPOILER][/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “Need Help?”] That’s why you’re here right? To get help Modding your Wii. Some users can just navigate the site and never need to post a thing because they can search, read and are on some level tech savvy. Other users need assistance. That’s why we are here... To support and assist those who need the help to mod or to help find solutions to their problems. We like to help… but... We don’t always like to spoon feed arrogant people who demand help or can’t use the search function... If our search is too hard to use there is Google, and if you can’t use Google then you SHOULD NOT mod your Wii...

    We see the same issues every day, same posts, same questions, same answers…. SEARCH FIRST!!! Read a little… Geez people! Too lazy to search for a solution, but can type a wall of text that takes 15 mins to read? C’mon man… step up your game... My spoon hand is getting tired, gonna have to just start [nice word] slapping people with it…

    Don’t be lazy... Help us, help you... If you’re really stuck then we take no issue helping as long as it’s within the lines of the rules... The “grey” area is kind of tough... The staff is here on OUR own time and do not get ANYTHING for being here helping you... We are not paid and don’t see any part of the donations... The donations go strictly to site development. Can you fathom how much it costs to run a site of this level and host the files that we do? Everything costs money... Just not the staff here so remember that the next time you are impatient or lazy... We aren’t getting paid... We are helping because we want to... So keep your cool and dont lose your head... Don’t give us reasons to NOT help you. If you do, well... Then we won’t...[/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= "Mutli Threads, Double Posts and bumping"]Ok.. So It might not bother you but it bugs the crap outta me! It clutters the forum and makes you come off as impatient and ungrateful.

    Mutli threads - Do you really need more then one?? Mods and staff see EVERY POST MADE! You only need one thread for your issue.. Dont create more then that..

    Double posts - You have an "EDIT" button... it will be right under your post to the right.. it will say "EDIT".. say it with me now.. "Eh-d-it" ...... Use IT!!!

    Bumping - If no one has got to you yet there IS a slim chance it was missed.. probably not.. As we answer what we know. so if we dont know, We will leave it for someone else or atleast contact another Staff member for assistance. So WAIT and be PATIENT!You can bumpAFTER 24hrs! and that it!!! I will infract/ban/scold/kick your dog/delete any users who abuse this after warnings....[/SPOILER]
    More to come (without a doubt) so stay tuned for the next edition! Peace I’m out![/SPOILER]

    Looks good Pob. You might want to add that Wii Backup Fusion 1.1 (for GNU/Linux) does not seem work with Kubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot (fully updated install as of 12/07/2011). It appears to be a problem with QT.

Cheating takes the fun out of the game... Why make it easier? Do you suck that bad at it? Don’t like the challenge? GET A DIFFERENT GAME! We don’t support cheats here. Users will not be given help on how to become invincible or walk through walls... you want god mode? Unlimited ammo? Go Google it somewhere else. Don’t ask about it here.[/SPOILER]

    There are a lot of users/members that say “this is wiihacks wtf?” or "that’s the point in hacking a Wii”... No it is not….. We assist users in backing up their legally purchased games so they don’t get ruined in the future (we know how kids are)... Before backups I had bought 3 Mario karts! Ridiculous… Anyways, it also allows us to fully enjoy the console and the convenience that some mods add to the system. We make it custom and set it up the way we like it. Kind of like your pc. A lot of users buy the Wii just so they can do that! I will ban anyone who tries to argue that point... Dont be ignorant... [/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “So you Think You’re a Hacker”]Warning: Spoiler below is a rant. [SPOILER= "Shift_Lock's Rant about the tough guys"]Really guy? We are “Modder’s” at best... most users aren’t even that. A hacker would shut down this site with a single code line… Not sit here claiming he’s one arguing about rules and why he needed help... I’m not saying we don’t have members that are real “hackers” but face it... You aren’t one of them... Coders and developers are fantastic people that make all this possible. And some of those guys truly are considered hackers at some level. Now, could they hack the pentagon? Probably not, but maybe. Who knows... lol

    The point of this is for those of you that come on here thinkin you’re hot [nice word]... If you were a hacker you wouldn’t need our help and wouldn’t need to hide behind a proxy or redirect to post your nonsense… Get over yourself and just follow our guides. If you can’t “hack” a Wii, what can you do? Can you hit the logout button? Try It! How about facing your fail and going back to the guides to read some more… Leave the “hacking” to the REAL hackers out there. /end rant[/SPOILER][/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “Need Help?”] That’s why you’re here right? To get help Modding your Wii. Some users can just navigate the site and never need to post a thing because they can search, read and are on some level tech savvy. Other users need assistance. That’s why we are here... To support and assist those who need the help to mod or to help find solutions to their problems. We like to help… but... We don’t always like to spoon feed arrogant people who demand help or can’t use the search function... If our search is too hard to use there is Google, and if you can’t use Google then you SHOULD NOT mod your Wii...

    We see the same issues every day, same posts, same questions, same answers…. SEARCH FIRST!!! Read a little… Geez people! Too lazy to search for a solution, but can type a wall of text that takes 15 mins to read? C’mon man… step up your game... My spoon hand is getting tired, gonna have to just start [nice word] slapping people with it…

    Don’t be lazy... Help us, help you... If you’re really stuck then we take no issue helping as long as it’s within the lines of the rules... The “grey” area is kind of tough... The staff is here on OUR own time and do not get ANYTHING for being here helping you... We are not paid and don’t see any part of the donations... The donations go strictly to site development. Can you fathom how much it costs to run a site of this level and host the files that we do? Everything costs money... Just not the staff here so remember that the next time you are impatient or lazy... We aren’t getting paid... We are helping because we want to... So keep your cool and dont lose your head... Don’t give us reasons to NOT help you. If you do, well... Then we won’t...[/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= "Mutli Threads, Double Posts and bumping"]Ok.. So It might not bother you but it bugs the crap outta me! It clutters the forum and makes you come off as impatient and ungrateful.

    Mutli threads - Do you really need more then one?? Mods and staff see EVERY POST MADE! You only need one thread for your issue.. Dont create more then that..

    Double posts - You have an "EDIT" button... it will be right under your post to the right.. it will say "EDIT".. say it with me now.. "Eh-d-it" ...... Use IT!!!

    Bumping - If no one has got to you yet there IS a slim chance it was missed.. probably not.. As we answer what we know. so if we dont know, We will leave it for someone else or atleast contact another Staff member for assistance. So WAIT and be PATIENT!You can bumpAFTER 24hrs! and that it!!! I will infract/ban/scold/kick your dog/delete any users who abuse this after warnings....[/SPOILER]
    More to come (without a doubt) so stay tuned for the next edition! Peace I’m out![/SPOILER]
