    Maximum USB HD capacity

    Hi guys! I'm entering the world of usb loading games... I found in a shop a HD USB of 1TB size. I was wondering if Neogamma or USB Loader GX are able to read a HD of such a size.
    Is there any size limit? Some1 did any try?

    I believe that loaders do not limit the size of the HDD you use but WBFS only allows 500 games on a partition. USB Loading minimizes the space that games use so I doubt it would fill up that whole 1TB. You could always partition the HDD and use one partition for USB Loading. I'd you make sure to check the capability list before buying an HDD:

    Does this link mean that only HDD listed there are compatible?
    Also, I'd like to use USB Loader GX so that I can format the drive as FAT32 and use it for other things

    No, but those are the recommended and tested models. If you have one already then try it out... but if you are buying a new one, I suggest getting one that is known to be compatible.

    No problems there! You can also use Configurable USB Loader to load from a FAT32 Drive.
    Damn I suck!!!!
