    USB Uploader GX as a Forwarder onto HDD

    HI, I have searched around but can't find a difinitive answer on how to do this. I have USB Uploader GX currently installed as a channel but I would like to install it as a forwarder to the FAT32 partition on my HDD drive with the end goal of not having an SD card in my Wii. Can someone explain how to install this with what files to put where?

    Very much appreciated!!

    i know you can load apps from your usb just copy the apps folder from cd card to the root of your usb drive then load hbc and press the 1 button choose usb
    and you can get a forwarder from here

    It's simple...Create an apps folder on your fat partition if you don't already have one and move your GX there. Copy over all of the other GX folders for covers and such off of your SD onto your HDD. Launch it as robgee said and then go into options and change all of your paths over to your HDD rather than your SD. It's been a while since I did this but if my memory serves me right I believe if you delete your GxGlobal.cfg file before you transfer GX to your HDD it will automatically choose the correct paths when you launch it from HDD for the first time which might make things a little easier.

    Thanks for the help chaps. The underlying problem I had was not formatting the FAT32 partition of my HDD properly. It had formatted to exFAT on Windows 7 without me realising or noticing... So my Wii wasn't picking up anything i placed in there. Using EASEUS to format it properly to FAT32 has done the trick.
