    you can use Easeus to mark the thumb drive active or drop to a command prompt as Administrator and use DISKPART to mark it active.
    will making a partition active keep my pc running as atm i only have a 1 partition which is local disk C and in diskmanagment it says (healthy system) nthing else? (i read that if you make a partition active and the bios doesnt read it/locate primary active partition then your pc wont boot, basically usless)
    you can have multiple active partitions on a computer (multiple drives), no big deal on that...

    Hi there.

    I got a question. If I decide to format on NTFS it is necesary to have a FAT32 partition in order to run the games?? because I must run homebrewchannel in order to load any loaders Am I right===??? In that case of having those partitions, which one would be marked as ACTIVE or Primary???

    Thanks in advance.

    Both would he active. The one with the games will need to be primary. You could us an SD card for the fat partition to store your apps and covers instead.

    Because I have a 2TB HDD seagate wii compatible but it is in WBFS format and just reached the 500 games limit for that partition, so I am chossing if I format it again only in one FAT32 or NTFS partition or both of them I suppose have no games save limit.

    So which one of the format do you recommend for me?? FAT32 or NTFS??? or have both partition?

    P.D.: I never have a problem loading games from WBFS format, but hate that 500 games limit, yes I know it is obsolete.

    Thanks in advance

    That sure is a lot of games.....make me wonder...hmmmmmm.
    Either of them will work. I have a 1tb for my wii. I did 750gb fat32 and the rest ntfs for movies. I don't the kind of cash you must have so 750gb is plenty of space for the games I can afford.

    Hi there!
    Can anyone help me?

    I did everything as this tutorial said (and othes on wiihack) but the games on my hdd do not appear.

    I was using a FAT32 HDD, now I started using a NTFS HDD.
    I'm using USBLoader GX 2.3 with cIOS 223 v5.1 and IOS249
    The loader opens, but no games are shown.
    The games are in a WBFS folder, and visible in Wii Backup Manager.

    Anyone have an idea of what is wrong?

    I'm having problems too but I may can ask a few redundancy check questions....lol

    Is the WBFS folder in the root of your drive? ie: USB:\WBFS\

    If your drive is partitioned, make sure that you have the partition with the Wii stuff on it set to Active/Primary.
