    Can I add more then games to my ext hdd...

    I'm using a softmod 4.2e wii, and want to start playing games of my ext hdd. But atm I haven't any spare hdd's. I want to know if after I create partitions on my hdd, and format the 1st partition to wbfs, if its possible to add games to that partition and then add my movies apps etc on the other partition/s.

    I know you can create partitions and that the first partition needs to be wbfs and active, but I'm not sure if that is just to organize your games or if u can add more content to it, like movies apps etc, for your pc use..

    Thanks

    To my knowledge you can't use a WBFS partition for anything else. Windows won't even recognize it and treats it as a non formatted drive. You can use other partitions on the same drive for storage.

    Another method would be to do what I do (thanks to Cile's suggestion) which is format the entire drive as FAT32 then you can run all the Loaders off it and you can also runs games via the loaders. All you have to do is create a direction called wbfs on the root, and then convert your iso's to WBFS files instead of ISO. This allows you to have files, games, movies, mp3s, etc etc all on one drive, one partition.

    See this thread to learn how: Wii Game Manager - GBAtemp.net

    (This links another website as we don't have this particular guide on this site, hope this doesn't break any rules?)
