    Usb loader gx wont let me dump a dvd when my flash drive is fat32

    Ikeep getting this error it says somethings thena bunch of numbers then restarts the wii to bootmii (boot2) but when my 2gig flash drive was wbfs it worked fine but i want to burn the games to a disk thats why i need fat 32 so i can burn the games i ripped to a disk what should i do. By the way im only using a 2 gig to see if this is gonna work because im going to buy an 8 gigabyte flash drive to burn games to a disk (if you guys ask i kind of think i prefer burnt games more than usb it seems easier for me)

    Well 2 gig is rather small, you think that could be the issue?

    Dear ag396,
    The first thing you must do is format your flash drive with your wii. After that you can copy your (backup) DVD from your wii to your flash drive or external hard disk which is mounted om your wii. If this is succesfull and you can use all USB loader functionallities then you can do some experiments with your PC using WBFS manager.
    I advice you to work with a external hard disk and it doesn't matter if it is internal with a IDE or SATA connection.
    When your format is not succesfull you can unmount the hard disk out of your external drive and connect it in a PC direct on the IDE or SATA controller. On this way you can repair directly your FAT32 partition and try to format the hard disk via the USB connection with the wii.

    Don't forget that a 2Gbyte flash memory is too small for burning a DVD.
    When you have a small game (for example 1GB) the ISO property tells that you have a DVD from 4,5 GB. I think you can better use a flash memory with a minimum space of 8GByte. But don't forget. First format your flash drive with your wii.

    Youre doing it wrong, you should go check the USBLoader GX website.
    If you really wanna use a FAT32 partition you need to convert your .iso's into .wbfs files.
    USB Loader GX does not convert them to this format for you.

    (Hint theres a big colorful news article right at the top of USBLoader GX's website right now that will point you in just the direction you need to go.)
