    Will my USB flash drive work?

    First off does Neogamma have a USB loader for Wii games?

    If so which format is best suited for usb loading? wbsf or ISO?

    everytime I hear of USB kloaders its always about USB hard drive.. what about USB flash drives do those work with USB loaders?

    Will MY usb flash drive work? (its not on the compatibility list)? The tyope I have (or will be getting) is SanDisk Cruzer 32 GB USB Flash Drive (SDCZ36-032G-AFFP)?

    Lastly I plan to make two partitions on the flash drive... the main partition will be 4.07GB FAT32 partition with 32k clusters for Gamecube stuff and the secondary partition will use the remaining space as an NTFS partition for Wii stuff will that work/be possible? and lastly what format would you suggest for Wii iso or wbsf? I have wbsf files and wanted to know if they should be converted to ISO or left as is?

    Read this guide http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...ide-fat32.html and http://www.wiihacks.com/other-faq-gu...ing-redux.html . One partition FAT32 HDD is recommended and wbfs files works on FAT32 and NTFS HDD

    wbsf file for a game like Xenoblade or Last story wont work on a fat32 partition as itsa WELL beyond the 4gb limit file size that fat32 formats have

    All Wii games works on FAT32 HDD ,( if you use Wii Backup Manager or USB Loaders to install the game) and all HB apps, emulators, GameCube games, WiiMC and all the latest USB Loaders.
    I have Xenoblade Chronicles and The Last story on my FAT32 HDD and it works perfect.

    USB FAT32 HDD/ wbfs/ THE LAST STORY [SLSP01]/SLSP01.wbf1
    SLSP01.wbfs
    USB FAT32 HDD/wbfs/ Xenoblade Chronicles [SX4P01]/SX4P01.wbf1
    SX4P01.wbfs

    I don't know, never had any trouble with my games (that were split) when I ran a FAT drive, but I switched over to NTFS so I wouldn't have to deal with split wbfs files anymore...

    lol well since you switched to NTFS yourself why should I bother using FAT32 for anything other than GC games which require fat32? >.>
