    WiiMC

    Can WiiMC use a harddrive for media instead of a sd card?

    Yes, or follow the FAT32 guide in my signature. Only one partition is needed for both purposes. WBFS is not needed anymore.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    NTFS=Yes it makes it easier you dont have to use a manager to move delete your games...only with CFG v60 or Wiiflow 2.2(read/write)

    GX=read only

    FAT32=same as above but you have to split files over 4GB but it works for everything

    That's for NTFS. Slightly more options with FAT32 (just clarifying).

    Yeah it does. I have a 1TB Lacie D2 with 400gb FAT32 and 500gb NTFS and I use FAT32 for backups and NTFS for media. Works like a charm with WiiMC (The latest version). Some of the games are only a couple hundred megs in size.
