A quick question about creating an NTFS partition on a FAT32 2TB External HDD
Hello, I currently have a WD 2TB HDD formatted to FAT32 and use it to play all my games though ConfigUSBLoader. No problems.
Knowing I will not use the full 2TB for games, I would like to create an NTFS partition so that I can load HD movies (files over 4gb) that will stream through my WD TV Live Hub. I just don't wanna create an issue for ConfigUSBLoader or the Wii when trying to access the games on the FAT32 portion of the newly dual partitioned HDD.
Unless there is a way to load large movie files to a FAT32 formatted HDD...?
If you're using Windows, you could simply use the Disk Management Console tool to easily create a new partition on your HDD. Massive amount of information on the web about how to do this. Alternatively, you could use an external program to accomplish this, and EAUSUS Partition Manager is frequently used (and I've used this successfully as well). Your choice, really. After creating your new partition, you may want to set it to 'active' so that your DVD, TV, other equipment recognizes it and can play files/folders from it. Good luck!

Thanks, Wico. Actually creating the partition is not a problem. I can handle that just fine. I just want to be sure the new NTFS partition will not confuse ConfigUSBLoader from reading games on the FAT32 portion of the HDD. Thanks
You may then have to note the partition numbers after you've created the new partition (should be #1 for FAT32 and #2 for NTFS), and then if you're having an issue you may need to alter your config XML script to read "AUTO=USB1" where appropriate.
