    NTFS partition supported by configurable loader!

    So thats real hot news:

    guys from configurable usb loader have achieved ntfs file system support for HDD. Now you can put your isos in a folder and the loader will be capable of reading them. Bye bye WBFS partition! bye bye xxx.wbfs file! we are using our isos now!

    Well, not really, the issue here is that the game will be 4.37Gb... so i guess if you dont have a REALLY big HDD you won be using it right?

    Get it here as usual
    Configurable USB Loader - GBAtemp.net

    Its a GREAT development in the scene =] Its nice to be able to easily use your spare hdd as BOTH backup/storage AND to store your wii backups on and be able to play them without having to partition -OR- reformat.

    Its worth noting also that so far they cannot write to the NTFS partition, so no installing games to HD using the Wii just yet.

    not entirely true? i was in the middle of swapping out my 300gb hdd for a 500gb and at first i was going to format this new hard drive with partitions for my emulators and roms, when i stumbled upon a guide about this. and i transfered all my games with wii back up manager and it scrubbed them down to size, only had 1 problem and that was metroid?? 117 games was only 225gb, i just hope i can still make channells for my favorite games

    Couldn't you just do one 500gb partition in FAT32? Configurable USB Loader Supports FAT32. I was talking to lfc4ever about this in another thread However wouldn't you need another program other than WBFS Manager to copy them from your PC to your Wii HDD? Something like Wii Game Manager, or are they same? Is one better?

    WBFS manager doesnt work with FAT32 as far as I know. Wii Game Manager and Wii Backup Manager both work with FAT32 ,NTFS and WBFS.
    Transfer to USB hard disk rate is about 1gb per min of the scrubbed file size, so a lot faster than WBFS Manager.
    For example , when I transfered NSMBros on WBFS Manager it took nearly five minutes!! On Wii backup manager it took 30 seconds!!!
