Considering I'm a noob in all of this; unfortunately, I don't know how to locate the corrupt file. Since that is the case, I'll install a different loader and try that out. Will post back!

I would like to put all my dos and snes rom games on my external hdd but it's over 15GB, so according to your recommendations it won't fit on a FAT32 partition. homebrew apps don't show up on ntfs partition.
Is it possible to load my roms from a second partition? Does anyone have some advice for me?

@jiznic-you misunderstood the information. The 4GB size limitation is for individual files, not the aggregate or total. FAT32 cannot handle an individual file larger than 4GB, that's a PC OS limitation of the file format itself, nothing to do with Wiis. As long as your individual files are smaller than 4GB, and I believe they are, please feel free to place your ROM games and such on the FAT32 partition.

thank you for clearing that up. The confusion came not from your post but from my ignorance.
I have successfully made a 100GB FAT32 partition on windows 7, using this simple and free program: FAT32format.

I recently did the 3.1-4.1 wit no problems and now I'm tryin to get this usbloadergx to work. my problem is when I run the usb loader it goes to a blank menu, it looks like the white back ground wallpaper with no icons or games to select. I can move the controller on the screen, it seems like its not loading the wbfs completly. the partition is primary and active. But when I hook up the hd to my pc and run wbfs 3.0 all the games are there... what am I doing wrong? did I miss a step? thanks.

having an issue
I have a WD 500gb My Book external hard drive. I currently run Windows 7 x64bit and for some reason every time I try to get WBFS 3.0 to format it comes up with an error. I tried formatting it through the Wii, but then when I load it back onto my PC WBFS manager says it isn't formatted right.
I followed the guide several times and it seems I may just have to stick with burning everything to dvds
Anyone have any suggestions?

format the drive to either fat32 or ntfs since all usb loaders support it. the ONLY drawback to ntfs is that you can't copy a game disc from your wii to your usb hdd, but you can if you use fat32

Is there anyway to format to fat 32 using windows 7? (edit: I only get the option for exFAT) someone posted a link earlier to some programs, but none of them were compatable with x64bit and the command prompt always errors out saying the drive is too big (after several hours of formatting)

Fancy, what error do you get? You should be able to format it on the pc and not the wii. Did you set the partition to primary and active? Should go off without a hitch.

I get "an error occured while attempting to format the drive" from the WBFS manager.
