Just make sure it is partitioned into a primary partition and the FAT32 partition is then marked as active, and it seems to be best if the FAT32 is the 1st partition.
You will get at least 2 x more games on a WBFS system than on an NTFS system for sure.
thank you for the help.
i will do like that
so if i'm using a wode, and i want to be able to load iso's how exactly do i partition my hard drive. i thought all i had to do is format the hdd to wfbs and put the iso's in there so they can be copied to the hdd. can someone please explain what steps i need to take.
If your using windows and have a completley formated drive just create a primary partition, but don't format it using NTFS or FAT32 and assign it a drive letter. Then open up WBFS and select that drive and click format in WBFS. This will allow you to just select the iso and copy it to the drive. I did a dual partition with the Primary in NTFS and a fat32 partition in hopes to watch movies from the drive, but when everything was done and I copied a game and a movie to each partition I was able to play the game, but not watch the movie although the movie played fine from a USB flash drive. Not sure if it's becuase the WBFS partition or not, but if you DON'T set the WBFS partition to primary it won't load in wiiflow so I didn't have any other choice.
just one question comes to mind. Does operating system matter?
xp in particular?
well looks like im going to go buy a western digital HDD
i guess my question is if i partition my HDD can i increase the size at a later time for more games? i mean i am pretty sure i can but i have not done this procedure before
oh and so when i partition it i should change it to NTFS? i have wii games downloaded and ready to be played
What size of drive do you plan on getting, and what is it going to be used form only Wii or other things too?
Please remember your manners - say Thank You if someone helped , it doesn't hurt
I have a 250gb Simpletech external HDD.I have some files on there that I don't want to delete and I would still like to be able to use it for adding other files as well.Is it possible to set a partition for the files I want to keep plus leaving a few GB's for other files and use the rest of the free space formatted for Wii games to be played on the Wii?
