    I was doing some reading last night over at GATemp and when I get my WD 500gb HDD drive in next week, I'll do one partition in FAT32. I will use Wii Game Manager (Confirmed WBFS Manager 3.0 does NOT work with FAT32) to scrub files and USB Loader GX to play games.

    you gotta be kidding me

    NSMB on WBFS partition: ~380MB. the iso (for this game or any game, cept SSBB or MPT: 4.38GB! yea, i want to have NTFS, so that EVERY game can be 4.38GB. i'll spend that much more money for starage so it can read the iso... like some1 posted, 117 games 225GB. 117 x 4.38 = 512GB. congrats, simplicity costs ya 250GB meaning longer transfer times, wooohooo.

    {NOT NEEDED}

    every loader supports WBFS and USB loader GX hasn't failed at loading a game yet. don't fix what aint broken, especially when the only benefit is to allow for native support of a filesystem so no formatting is necessary and life is all honky-dory drag and drop... ugggghh.

    edit: HAD to add this... the above poster said they'll scrub the games then load using ntfs. WHY? WBFS Manager does this on the fly during transfer! no need to overcomplicate things. get your iso from the net, WBFS Manager transfer it to a WBFS partition and you automatically get a scrubbed game, and load it. {edit} what is the advantage????

    I don't want to mess you up, but the newer uLoader supports ciso files, which are scrubbed So you don't make a point unfortunately

    Sorry messie but I gotta agree with that guy. After all, how dare they increase compatibility, giving people additional loading options ... in the best interests of the community ... Wait a sec...

    get 1 big drive, format it for WBFS, and throw your isos on. end of story... NTFS support is only for ppl who want to have spice girls mp3s and gay porn on the same drive as their astro boy and icarly games. worried about space? partition your drive, make the 1st partition WBFS the 2nd whatever, and get on with life. not happy? go buy a dedicated hard drive and use WBFS!

    Ehmmmm you know, having the wbfs partition IS the complicated in the case. And I have normal straight pron in my HDD does it matter? lol. Don't get like this because you are bored to change the format of your HDD. What is your problem anyway?

    My HDD is at a disadvantage, it is formatted to WBFS. I want to use it to play WiiWare from triiforce, I want to install emulators and roms to it, and maybe put a few movies on it so I don't have to convert them to DVD format for my dvd player. But WBFS will only accept Wii ISO's to be used by a usb loader. It is not in my best intrest to add partitions because its 500GB are just about used up. It will be nice when I get my new HDD and format it to only one partition that will be recognized by all of the applications on my Wii. Until all the apps on my Wii can recoginze NTFS, I will have to go with FAT32 format.

    Compression.....

    Did you know when you plug your HD to your PC you can Compress files on a NTFS Partition. It's part of the Format. (In blue in explorer). If IOS222\ 223 full supports NTFS than it can access compressed files on a NTFS volume.

    Subject is closed then!
