    I would still do a small FAT32 partition bud, (I have a 640 split 150FAT and 490WBFS) the reason was for movies and homebrew stuff.

    All my USB loader images etc are on the FAT part along with my SNES roms and other progs that load through HBC.

    Thank you all again for the info.
    Good idea with the GC games and movies. I might keep 100 on FAT32 and 400 for the wii games. I have 4 kids im sure they will find the crap games as well to fill it. For people who think its too small, I can always get a bigger hdd in the future if I find thats its not enough. Can someone tell me what partition I have to make primary? As for games it seems that free torrent sites are more of a pain than there worth so I think Im gonna go for one of the top 2 one off payment sites. Does anyone use them? do they have the latest games on? Thank you all again for the free information and time you take for posting your replys. Without you all I would have chucked my Wii though the window by now.

    Look into the WODE it loads from:

    NTFS - Read only, no ripping
    WBFS - Same as any USB loader
    FAT32 - Read and rip GC only
    Ext3FS - Pure ISO
    WiFi/SAMBA - Pure ISO

    Here's another thing to think about. If your hard drive fails with your proposed configuration, you will lose all of your iso's. I would keep your zipped backups on a different drive unless you feel like going about getting them again if anything goes wrong.

    You know the current version of Configurable USB Loader will load Wii ISOs from a FAT32 format USB device, no WBFS needed.

    That is a smart thing to do, keep backups of your backups. Back on topic, I did have a hard drive take a dump, and all my goodies along with it. There is nothing like loosing everything. If there's something you want to keep, keep it stored in two places.
