    Any help?
    There is a guide just like this one By Desperado and Cile. Same title as this guide but with NTFS instead of FAT32.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Ok guys, I am now ready to put me hard drive on the wii, just want to make suire I understand this right. I plan on trying the wii backup manager. The way I understand it is that it gets installed on my computer and it then transfers the files to the hard drive. I am I understanding this right?

    I should clarify that it's not really installed on your PC....just ran from your pc. It's an exe file.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Why? I know why 2TB is max, but what is the potential issue with going over 1TB? Should I partition my 2TB in half, and use the second half for media?

    Additional issue/question. I have Mario Kart disc, but it occasionally freezes on me when playing (kids got to it I think!) I've tried backing it up and I get the same issue, so I've gone online and found a copy.
    Now, having followed maulfrog's guide, I have a modded 4.1E console. With priiloader installed. My question is, with this and your guide, can I play US (NTSC) games, and can I play scrubbed games? I cannot find an unscrubbed PAL region.

    Edit:
    Wii Discs region free is enabled in Priiloader
    Anyone? Shall I get the scrubbed PAL or the unscrubbed NTSC? Need to download a backup of my damaged disc.

    I'm not going to help you with your downloaded game. Seek support wherever you got it or search. This guide has nothing to do with that.

    About the formatting, you can format the full 2TB's to FAT32 but it's kind of a waste. Yes you could split it... half FAT32 and half NTFS.

    Thanks to a couple of guides on this site, I have a fully functional Softmodified wii There is however something I'm still unclear on. The 2gb sd card limit. Is the 2gb card only necessary when running .wad files, and the actual mod? Can I use a 32gb SDHC now that all is said and done? Because for some reason, CFG usb-loader REALLY wants the covers to load from the SD card. But since the wii doesn't like SDHC cards, and 2gb is a joke this day in age, you can see where my problem is. I'd really like it to load the images from the 250Gb fat32 drive that will be installed this week But if the sd:\ is the only route...hopefully 32gb is ok. I haven't actually tried it yet. Fact of the matter is, I don't own a wii. It's my brothers I've been working on. Getting over there is challenging at times, since our hours are different
