    my usb is FAT32 and it is a 8 gig Adata c801 and i have a homebrew app to make it formatted to wbfs but it doesn't work.

    it knows there is something in there but it wont ask me to format.

    Could be your flash drive is not compatible enough to be recognized and used by the Wii. Before discarding that flash device, try to reformat that drive as FAT32, but make sure to use the full format option not the quick format this time. If that still fails, one last thing to try to to try to format that device from another PC-that is less likely to be the problem thatn for SD cards, but might as well give it a try before having to spend money on another device. Good luck.

    Us

    • Added additional checks for temp folder, to avoid crashes that were occurring when the program was closing. (All those who had issues with the program crashing when exiting should download this update).
    • Added remaining Chinese (Traditional) translations.
    • Automatically generates a default filename for extracting single ISO files.
    • Fixed a minor bug with the installer showing 64-bit instead of 32-bit.

    Download the WBFS Manager 3.0.1 update here: WBFS Manager - Releases




    AWESOME

    I put my USB in and WBFS did the rest. Great program

    The USB drive works great! Thanks a lot for the help!

    I have 2 questions:

    1: I want to add a FAT32 partition to my 750GB USB drive and dont know exactly how I would do that without messing up the WBFS partition. I need the partition to add wiiware and others things that would normally go to my SD card. If this is possible, which partition should come first (FAT32 or WBFS)?

    2: It took a long time to get all the games on this drive and I would be devastated if this drive failed. What is recommended for backing up the drive? Some sort of clone or imaging program specifically for WBFS out there or just use a regular app like norton ghost?

    Thank in advance for any help with those 2 questions and great guide once again!

    I cannot believe this thread is still going,

    Best tool for partitioning a drive is well any even the windows standard, partition magic is pretty good IMO

    Cloning is a good way to go storing on the pc perhaps or if you have unlimited internet dowloads why store it on dropbox or something similar

    Yes type this in your run menu!
    format H: /fs:FAT32 /v:WII

    (works if H is your USB drive)

    USB HDD Question--Share NTFS partition with LAN while connected to Wii

    Okay, I'm new, whatever, but I have a fairly advanced question (I think). Here's what I want to do:

    Use my 1.5TB HDD half for WBFS game loading and half as a networked drive for scheduled backups of my PC. Is it possible to have the Wii share the NTFS partition on my local network while the WBFS partition is attatched?

    OR Is it possible for the Wii to wirelessly stream off of the WBFS partition while connected to my PC?

    incase anyone is still having problems formatting their drive to FAT32, especially in Vista and Win7 where it doesn't always seem to work using the built in commands, i found a decent formatting tool

    Ridgecrop Consultants Ltd

    Also lets you choose the cluster size which is important if using sneek/uneek or an emulated nand.
