    Usb Loader GX and FAT32 = Blank Screen when loading games

    Ok, have done several mods all with USB Loader GX, various system menus, and using WBFS for the drives. Now I'm ready to go to the next level. I do not want to loose what I have right now. However my first hangup is when I format my drive to FAT32, and try to use USB Loader GX it shows the list of games after a few seconds and seems to want to load them, but when I click on the spinning disc all I get is a black screen. I have tried CIOS 249, 222,223,224 all do the same thing. I have heard it's best for FAT32 since the next step is going to get emulators working. Triforce most likely or sneek prehaps but they require a FAT32 partiton. It's best I think to have it all FAT32 so I can image/defrag the drive in windows without destroying the data on it. Has anyone gotten a FAT32 setup to work? I can switc from USB Loader GX to something else if it's going to work with everything, however I really like USB Loader GX.

    Thanks for all the help / suggestions!

    First, you should rename your thread title to something useful like "USBLoaderGX Blackscreen with FAT32" or "Question about FAT32 and USBLoaderGX" Then maybe someone who can help you will be able to find you.

    And after all that big wall of text you actually only ask one question yet state quite clearly in your title that you had more than one by using the plural form of question.

    I have a FAT32 as an extended partition on my WBFS volume and it works just fine. I'm still not convinced of any benefit of using a FAT32 partition to store game ISOs for use on Wii as they are all inflated to their 4.37GB size, unlike under WBFS where they can be smaller than 300MB for some.

    Well actually, they are not ISO's I'm using the .wbfs file format so they are the same size as on a WBFS drive. I have them in a folder wbfs on my drive it sees them but will not load them. You are correct on your assessment of my 1 question, I decided to get this going before the questions of triforce and sneek come into play.

    I'm a little out of touch with USB Loading it seems.

    So it seems, but at least you replied. Maybe someone with knowledge will also reply. I'll keep working on this and if I get it, I'll be sure to share my findings...
