    how to have gamecube games and wii games on 1 hard drive. wbfs or fat32?

    I'm trying to use one hard drive for both my wii and gc games. currently my drive has 1 partition as wbfs. the problem with this is that I can't load my gc games on it because I can't access the wbfs from my mac osx lion. previously i had my drive in fat32 format and i was able to have both the gc and wii games on it, but the only problem was that some of the wii games were not working. So is there a way to access the wbfs through file explorer so i can drag and drop my gc games onto it with my mac?

    You need to format a partiton as FAT32 with a 32kb cluster size. Can't get around the cluster size, which in turn means no wbfs or ntfs. Create a seperate partition, simply put your wii games on your main partition and gamecube games on the seperate partition, and in usb loader gx you can change the gamecube path from "sd/games" to "FATX/games". This will allow you to display BOTH your wii games and gamecube games.
