    1 tb buffalo help

    hi guy's,

    I'm using 1tb buffalo hdd formatted to wbfs to load all my games at mo,

    my question is when i 1st formatted the drive i Stupidly didnt put a partition on the damn thing,

    so its got about 250gig worth of games, and the rest is dead space, is there anyway to put a partition on a drive with iso's on it in wbfs format??

    i know on normal ntfs you can set and extended partition on a primary raw drive, but don't know about wbfs, or do i have to copy all the iso's off onto ova hdd and start from scratch???
    3.4e, v21d2x6, Priiloader-0.3b, Usb-configurable v73c, 2tb-WD Elements HDD Fat32

    If I have helped you do remember to press the little thanks button

    Dont think you can partition a drive that is fully formatted to wbfs. You may well have to start from scratch.

    Hey Favs, why is your FAT32 cluster size set to 8kb and not 32kb? Just curious.

    Hi
    I am using Mplayer Agent X Mod channel and is working perfectly with my 4 gig memory stick.
    When I connect my hard drive (samsung 320gig) and use the above Mplayer it does not pick up the movies. I have partioned the hard drive wbsf (active and primary) for games and FAT32 for movies ( and hopefully i would like to transfer all my WAD and HBC stuff saved on my sd to this hard drive but i still need to read up on that)
    For now, do i have to make the FAT32 active and primary as well? If I do will this not cause a conflict with the wbsf partion?
    Or what do I need to do to play movies off my hard drive.
    Thanks

    I would agree with statements prior about sticking the older format technology first. And far as I've always understood it 'active' is always misunderstood as needing to be applied to partitions for the sake of them being used but it really is only for win op sytems to use them as bootable or maybe some of these gaming loaders to see them. Perhaps as the loaders get better they all become customizable and can work off any situation of which is first or active,etc....i.e- doesn't wiflow now support ntfs? Even though there is conflicting opinion in this thread between going wbfs+fat32 or just going all fat32 I will be going for the combo with wbfs taking the lions share of the drive size. One reason being the smaller space the games take and then second reason is cause I have not heard whether game dumping/ripping from wii disks works to a fat32. Anyone got some info on that?
    ..oh also on the 32 versus 8 bit size. I think it is that the smaller the bit size the less waste you get between files. This why ntfs 2 bit has been the thing to utilize. Well that's how I learned it years back anyways..

    Hey all. I have a softmodded Wii running games through USB Loader GX. My question is this - How do I put the files on the FAT32 partition of my HDD AND get the Wii to read them from there?? I transferred the files but when I booted my Wii with the SD card out I was unable to see my Wii covers or any apps in my HBC....... Any ideas??

    You need to direct your usb loader to the hdd as it is set to use the sd as primary plus try marking the fat32 part. as active.
