    Depends on your forwarder
    if your forwarder is has 4 digits at the end of it and 2 of them are 58 (e.g. wiiflow forwarder - 58wf) this will be compatible with NTFS
    or
    If your forwarder has "nforwarder" in its title this too could mean its compatible with ntfs

    If you are unsure of which forwader you have look at this topic here> http://www.wiihacks.com/homebrew/699...t-narolez.html

    There is the USB2.0 NTFS forwarders in there
    PAL 4.2E|BootMii/Boot2+IOS|Priiloader v0.5beta|HBC 1.0.8|ciosX rev20 [249/57][250/56]
    Wiiflow [rev 254]|WiiMC v1.0.9|1.5TB HDD|

    it is Wiiflow_NForwarder-WFXF-Channel.wad dated 10/08/09. I also tried via HBC and it didnt work.

    Should I uninstall my current forwarder and install the one you recommended.

    If your using a ntfs drive that forwarder is old
    Go to the thread in my previous post and get the most upto date (advanced) forwarder, these can boot most ntfs drives

    I tried these on my hdd but they did not work for ntfs. my 2 friends have full ntfs and they work fine I guess its "just try em and see" at moment.

    Edit: yes try that one. (WiiFlow Loader - 58WF.wad dated 10/16/10)

    I can not make my WII to see the NTFS! I NEED HELP!!!
    I installed IOS236, IOS240,IOS222, and no way!
    on wiiflow 2.2(r254) only shows IOS 250, I change and try to update and give me error.
    What can I do? I have 800+games,so WBFS formating does not work for my boys.

    You should really make your own thread but whilst Im here Ill help you out.
    Firstly those NTFS forwarders aint 100% compatible with all drives (like mine for example)
    they do work for some not others.

    If you have all your games on a ntfs drive and you believe that you are doing everything correctly then your drive may not be compatible

    my work around for the moment is
    Shrink NTFS partition by 2gb
    create a 2gb FAT32 partition after your ntfs partiton
    Make FAT32 partition primary and active
    place wiiflow files in fat32 partition (the apps and wiiflow folders)

    It should work as it has for me.

    This should save you from copying all your games back and forth and reformatting your whole drive.

    Then as newer releases of the ntfs forwards emerge you can erase you fat32 and test out the ntfs quite easily

    Thanks.. I was using wiiflow 249 dol as soon as I changed it to wiiflow 222 dol and it worked. I am using Wiiflow 2.1 R119 222.dol
