    Emulator Roms on Hard Drive?

    I partition my 500gb Seagate hard drive.

    450gb for Wii ISO, loaded throught WBSF
    50gb for FAT32

    Well I wanted to use the 50gb for NES SNES 64 Roms...

    I found the Emulators and WAD them to a Channel.

    I load the Emulator and it can't find the HDD???

    The HDD works great for USBLoaderGX.

    AND Even MediaPlayer finds the FAT32 to play AVI's

    But the Emulators can't find the HDD, Is there a File path, to put the Roms in the Hard Drive? and how can I get the HDD to be seen with the Emulators?

    Thanks Guys!

    Try setting your FAT32 drive as the active partition, it doesn't hurt the WBFS - especially if the FAT32 is the 2nd partition.
    Please remember your manners - say Thank You if someone helped , it doesn't hurt

    So if I set it as active it will be ok?

    Also what type of files are the emulators looking for?

    7z ?
    Rom ?
    Smc ?
    z64 ?
    Zip ?

    Yes, it does no harm whatsoever, even if it doesn't work (which it should) it can be reversed without any loss of data.

    A lot of EMUs can read many formats, leaving them zipped up can save a whole of of space, but is slightly slower.

    Any idea on the file paths to the Roms?

    FAT:// ? / ? / xxx

    Well you have the App in the apps folder, better to use USB as well for HBC as it will look for the paths on the boot device first, then the same name in the root of the USB

    USB:/EMU (<- this is the name of the emu you are running)
    USB:/EMU/ROMS
    USB:/EMUSAVES

    Or just copy the SD Card over to the USB if you have been using that already?
    USB:/EMUCOVERS
