WAD from USB?
is this even possible?
WAD-Manager v1.5 gives you obtions to read from ...
gecko slot a
gecko slot b
given this i made an assumption, seems simple.
i formattd my Toshiba 500Gb HD (465gb) so it looks like
455gb WBFS // 10.5gb FAT32
both partitions are Primary (not Logical)
my assumption... oh i want this to work... took me to..
reading from SD, WAD-Manager needs a root WAD directory
so my FAT partiton gets the same.
fill WAD w/ all my wiiware & vc
get excited about one drive holdin ALL the Wiis needs for games
using both USB & USB 2.0 i get error ret=-1
tried another drive FAT32 all the way. WD500.
tried FAT(16) but had a 4gb limit, same error.
... now let me make clear that while in all of this i was reading w/o any trouble @ all from the WBFS side using WiiFlow
SO I ASK
is what i am attempting even possible (yet)?
have a read through : http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...tion-here.html for help with the error codes.
Sounds like it may be that your HDD is simply not compatible (theres a thread kicking around somewhere with a list of compatible USB drives. WD passport or Lacie Mobile disc work fine from personal experience.)
is ther an actual LIST of drives?
OR is this just WAD_Manager?
WiiFlow rights/reads from the FAT32 partition for boxcover info no prob.
i have to say the fact that WiiFlow uses BOTH WBFS & FAT32 partitions makes me sceptical about drive incompatibility, in this case anyway.
i hope that a v1.6 might address ? or even an upcoming cIOS
