    NAND emulation is, to keep a long story short and easy, USB loading for Virtual Console and WiiWare games. If you want to play Virtual Console and WiiWare games via your harddrive, you have to format it as FAT32. If you don't plan on doing this, you can keep your harddrive formatted as NTFS and continue following this guide.

    nand emulation is wii storage on a sd or usb...so you have more space then 512mb

    yep you can skip formatting just go into disk management and set to drive to active if not already it should say primary and active....

    hey guys I have two external HDDs one as fat32(111GB) and one NTFS(1.5TB). in my HDD(ntfs) I have my games listed twice as an ISO and as WBFS. I was wondering if I can erase the ISO part in order to save space. also some of them say under MD5 hash not found. what does that mean? one more question is there a risk in using the very same drive to other things like work or school ? how about switching drives often? thanks in advance.

    Yes, you can delete the iso if you want to. As for the MD5 hash, all that means is that a hash was not created for it or found, it is sorta like a file integrity check. And there is no risk using the drive for other purposes.

    Desp is correct. Also, I've read that pretty much all things will fail eventually & more quickly the more you use it. A HDD isn't gonna fail all of a sudden if you decide to use it after it has been sitting around for 3 years, but if you use it constantly for years then it has a greater chance of failing eventually. I have a HDD for my wii & another one for school purposes but it is totally ok to have one HDD for everything.
