    Having an issue loading backed up games, thinking of re-modding. where do i start?

    Recently formated my hdd to fat32. Now my backed up games only load sometimes, and it's completely random. Someone suggested i update my system. I am not the one who orignally modded my wii, so im not sure where to start on the ''Softmod any wii'' guide. Should i just start from the beginning? I have homebrew installed and USB loader GX. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Start with the spoiler titled "Softmods with HOMEBREW CHANNEL installed" and then continue the guide.

    fat32 is pretty buggy in Usb loader gx currently. I'd recommend ntfs or wbfs until the devs come up with a less buggy fat32 filesystem. Or a different loader. but USB Loader GX is legit and the way to go.

    I agree that USB Loader GX is an awesome loader, but how is FAT32 buggy?

    I've used both WBFS and FAT32 and I have to say FAT32 is much more convenient as you don't need a program to put games on your USB.

    Also, the USB (or HDD, in my case ) can be used for other purposes, such as general storage of other files and videos.

    FAT32 all the way, mate!

    Stated by dimok/strtoul (dev of gx)

    Anyway i would recommend everyone to switch from the buggy fat system and use ntfs everywhere it is possible. It is by far more stable than the fat/fat32 implementation by now.

    My drive is fat32 and I have no problems at all. Having said that, I use Configurable USB loader, not GX.

    That's probably why. If it works for you, then use fat32. I only use my wii for occasional game/neftlix. If I wanna play video files I use my bluray player, so no need for a hard drive plugged into my wii - the reason why a 2/4gb fat partition and the rest wbfs works for me. But it's all about preference.

    If you want to hold large files on your HDD (or have the ability to), use fat32,
    if its just games, wbfs or ntfs

    ROFL, wut?

    FAT32 only supports files up to 4GB in size. NTFS supports files up to 16 EB (16 × 10246 bytes) and it's a journaling filesystem, which is great because it prevents data loss.
    NTFS has a great repair tool(Windows CHKDSK), NTFS is the default filesystem for Windows OS'. 'nuf said.

    I mean while still being able to load homebrew, HBC reads FAT32

    I was using WBFS orignally, and then one by one my back up games stopped working, until they all quit working. Someone suggested i switch to FAT32. The first time i did, everything ran smoothly, but then starting it up a second time, i started having problems.
    Everyone seems to have different experiences with different formats. Now i feel confused LOL. Maybe ill try NTFS?
    Or a different loader? Thanks for the input.
