    1TB HDD + USB Loader GX on softmodded Wii 3.2, How to setup?

    I just got Verbatim 1TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive. Here's what the USB device compatibility list says about it:
    Works with USB Loader(GX) 1.0-1.5, USB Loader GX R894 and CFG Loader v50b3-fat (great loader). Worked great with 1TB partition full on fat32. great Working hdd.
    So how do I get started? I would like to play backed up games on my Wii through the HDD as well as backed up film DVDs My Wii is softmodded and on 3.2E.

    Check out this guide: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...s-usb-hdd.html

    The guide should explain everything.

    Actually, I believe that config loader can play from FAT32, while all others do need to be formatted to WBFS.

    EDIT: If you do choose to format to WBFS, I think you have to keep half of it as either FAT32/NTSF. I seem to recall someone saying that some Wii's will only recognized up to 500 GB partitions. However I could be wrong. I suggest at least a 500 GB partition anyways in FAT32 so you can use it as storage or emulator space, since I don't think there's even 1TB of games out there.

    The wii will recognize a full 1TB HDD fine, you DO NOT need to partition it. It has a 500 GAME limit on one partition. Which is only a problem for the pirates. 500GB for a fat32 partition is kind of overkill unless you plan on storing alot of movies or something on it.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Okay. Point taken.
    But what would be the point of having a 1TB WBFS partition?
    Why not convert at least half to NTSF or FAT32 so you can actually use it for something?

    I'm just saying, cause if OP doesn't partition in the beginning, he'll have to completely reformat to add a partition.

    I was just pointing out that partitioning is not needed. I didn't say there is no reason to do it. It would depend on what he has in mind for the drive.
