    Question format usb flashdrive for usb loader?

    hi all, so im using the usb loader to load new games i burned to a disc. the flashdrive i was using broke, so i bought a new one to use with usb loader, but its not working. usb loader asks me if i wish to format or select a partition. whichever i do my wii brings up a nasty digit screen with a humming noise and freezes. my usb is FAT formatted. is this right? any help is appreciated

    Moved to newbie section as issue has nothing to do with software backup loaders per se.

    If you are using a wbfs partition, you can format it with wbfs manager. On a personal note, whenever I use wbfs manager to format, it only seems to work if the drive is already ntfs formatted, it always fails for me if it is fat32 from the start.
    Give credit where credit is due. If it helps you, click "thanks" on ANY guide I link.
