    NTFS Hard Drives - Formatting, Loading, Ripping, Playing - Redux

    A new guide is up and can be found Here...Link=NTFS Guide.



    Written by BRIAN

    You must have Waninkoko's cIOSx Rev19+ or Hermes cIOS 222/223 v4+ to use NTFS



    Mac/OSX specific instructions are a Work In Progress, but will be added soon


    First Things First!

    The good and bad of NTFS

    Setting Up Your External Hard Drive

    Used Hard Drives

    Formatting

    Installing Loaders and Forwarder Channels

    Getting Your Games to the Hard Drive

    Game Cover Art

    USB Loader Settings and Guides

    Miscellaneous - Dealing With Archived Files

    FAQ

    Credit to the following:





    FAT32 Hard Drives - Formatting, Loading, Ripping, Playing
    [BEST OPTION MOST RECOMMENDED WORKS FOR EVERYTHING]



    It is illegal to obtain/distribute backups of games that you do not own.

    The guide and this site DOES NOT SUPPORT OR PROMOTE SOFTWARE PIRACY. Play Fair
    No help will be given to individuals with questions relating to this. You have been warned!

    Yes good job guys, you might want to add that if the HDD is already formatted to NTFS they can just set it as active and go from there
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Really nice. Actually had the idea of writing an NTFS guide as well, but you all beat me to it. Great work!

    Much thanks, been looking for a guide like this and it's funny that this was just made. Quick question - so compared to a Fat32, with NTFS I can keep files larger than 4GB, convert wii files from .iso to .wbfs to save space, and keep other files on there (such as video files in .avi or .mpg for instance)? So.. why do people use Fat32 if NTFS seems like the more convenient solution (just curious)?

    everything works with fat32 nand emulation,apps works with gx,wiiflow,cfg loader,uloader

    it was just recently made that you can launch the loaders of ntfs and save their config/folders only wiiflow and cfg have read/write support for ntfs

    Ah ok. I'm still new to the Wii mod scene so I'm not too familiar with Nand emulation or what it is so I suppose that isn't a concern for me personally. I bought a 320GB Seagate Go HDD so it came as NTFS... so I can skip the formatting step?
