    Question Hard Drive Partition Question

    I have recently modded a friend's Wii, he had one of the newer ones that doesn't read burnt DVDs, so I got him setup using a USB Loader GX.

    Is there a way I can partition the Hard Drive where a part of it could be used for Games and the other part can do movies in MPlayer? When I tried this MPlayer on the Wii couldn't find the Hard Drive and it crashed out, even with it Partitioned in FAT32 or NTFS. The Game Partition is showing up fine however.

    Thanks for the quick response Cile

    The only downside is the Hard Drive is 500GB and everytime I try to format the whole thing as FAT32 it says it too big, But aside from that your saying I can make the whole thing FAT32 and USB Loader GX will read the games on it and of course the Movies?

    Also to fix the Issue of the 500GB being too big for FAT32 is there a way to Partition it?
