    Playing Wiiware of a FAT32 Hard Drive

    I originally had a hard drive with FAT32 for my wiiware games running off Uloader, and my backup wii games running from WBFS. Everything was fine. I decided to get with the times and convert everything to FAT32. Now I am having trouble getting my wiiware games to load. Uloader is freezing a lot on titles and exiting of games to the point where I am looking for another solution.

    I really like CFG USB Loader and LoaderGX. Can they be used to play Wiiware games off a FAT32 hard drive?

    I have looked at all the tutorials. Is Triiforce the best way to go if the above cannot be used? I'm sure I saw somewhere wiiware games being mixed in with wii backup games on a wiiflow menu I think.

    Thanks.

    The latest Usb Loader GX has excellent nand emulation. I have been using it for awhile now and love it. Check out the link below in my sig.

    I use Mighty Channels for my WiiWare/VC games, seems to work well for me. And Config USB Loader for all the standard Wii games, it seems to be extremely stable. I find it hard to copy Mighty Channels setups from Wii to Wii (I have done a number of them), but other then that, it's brain dead to setup. You just need a copy of your old NAND, which you made anyways when you originally modded your Wii.

    Apparently the most recent Config USB Loader has some new Gamecube support built right into it, that is my next project, so I can't say how well it works. My goal is to run Gamecube off the usb harddrive.

    Config 70r15 "seems" to be fixing some of my periodic WiiMotionPlus wiimote disconnect problems, but only time will tell.

    Hi. I have the 4.3u modded according to Guide: Softmod ANY Wii I would like to use the fat32 or NTFS for the backups.

    Can you recommend a guide/procedure to modify it to use my Wii with fat32 or/and ntfs drives?
    Thanks

    Your Wii can already use both of those. We have guides for setting up HDDs for use with those two formats. Aside from that, the only thing you may need to change is the config files for your loaders. Plug in your newly formatted drive and simply delete the config files. Your loaders will write new ones for use with your new drive format.

    GX=sd/apps/usbloader_gx/gxglobal.cfg OR sd/config/gxglobal.cfg
    WiiFlow=sd/apps/wiiflow/wiiflow.ini AND sd/wiiflow/cache/lists/*.*
    CFG=sd/usb-loader/settings.cfg
