    Want to be able to use Hd for everything and not depend on sd

    Hi guys ive updated my wii following this sights guide and installed configure usb as a wad. Iam just wondering if there is a way to have other things like snes emulaters ect as wads so i dont need my sd in. Ive got a 100gb external hd and have 30gb wbfs and the rest ntfs. Any help would be great. Also with configure usb as wad i cant seem to access menu and stuff and resort to using sd

    Firstly, you can have your entire drive set to fat32 and play emulators and wii games off of it. Check the fat32 link in my signature for instructions. Secondly, you really don't want too much on your wii nand, but you should look up forwarders. You can have your apps on your HDD as you would have them on your SD card. They just need to be on correctly named folders for the forwarders to pick them up. You can basically have everything on your HDD if you choose, but it needs to be fat32.

    Ok thanks for your advice, so you need app files on your sd or hd anyways for the nand installed apps (Config usb, snes emulater ect) to work properly? Also arnt most games over 4gb. Thanks again :-D

    You can find full channel apps for some apps like wiimc that you can install the entire thing to your Nand, but you would be better off using forwarder files on your wii to access the SD or HDD. If you actually read the fat32 guide, you will see that you shrink the games down for use on the fat32 hdd, and they will actually take up just under however much space they took on the wbfs partition, so space is not an issue.

    Channels are installed to the nand so you don't need a hdd or sd card installed for the program to work. Forwarders need a hdd or sd card. I like using forwarders because its easy to update the program if needed. My hdd is setup as fat32 and have wiiflow, triiforce, and wiimc installed. No sd card needed as the apps are on my hard drive.
