    Weird USB Loader partition error?

    I'm using the USB loader that is include in the files with Mauifrogs guide.

    I have a hard drive (160GB) that has one single partition formatted as WBFS. That's it, no separate NTFS partition or anything like that. Everytime I open the loader, it tells me:
    y,
    Partition: FAT1 not found!
    Select a different partition
    or format a WBFS partition.

    Then I just hit "a" and select the ONLY partition shown, and away we go.

    It's not a big deal, since it works, but it's kid of annoying. It'd be cool if I had priiloader set up to boot my loader and when I fired up my Wii, my games all appeared on the screen, instead of having to select a partition. Maybe I'm just nit-picky for a polished setup, but anyway, wanted to know if anyone had a fix!

    Thanks,



    John

    Go to the settings and change the partition to wbfs and save. Get yourself a forwrder .dol for cfg usb loader and install in priiloader and change the settings to load installed file and cfg usb loader will then load instead of the sm

    Yeah I already got the second part figured out, I'll try that first part real quick and report back. Thanks!

    Edit: Okay, I thought so. It's already set like that once you go in. Like I said it asks for the partition each time. So once you select it, it's reflected in the global config. Next time you fire it up, same issue.

    When u check that its reflected in the global settings do u save it?

    Also u should consider dropping wbfs format for full fat32

    Why should I drop WBFS? Everything works fine, I don't have any issues, all apps are able to see everything just fine and it works smoothly. What advantage would a FAT32 partition give me?

    Edit: I've been googling around, it does make sense. Although I really don't have any media files and I have a 32GB SD card so space isn't an issue for emulators and stuff, but, what would be the easiest way to re-format it, preferably without losing my rips? It's only a couple games but, having to re-rip them would be a pain.
