    Right been studying the threads and plan to read them over few more times bofor doing anything, my first question is i have a a Samsung 1tb ext hd, no i have music files and other data on this, pleanty of space on it, can i create a sperate pation soleley for my wii games and setup files or does the hd have to be formatted and dedicated solely for the wii stuff. Hope i dont have to go out and buy a new hd anyone clear this up for me, cheers

    I use WBFS for my CFG Loader and its very user-friendly in all aspects so I do not know much about Fat32 but consider the WBFS

    FAT32 or NTFS is the way to go, WBFS is old and retired, no need for it anymore...

    That depends on your USB Loader.
