    USB Loader GX or GFG Loader?

    So I'm asking here, what should I use for my Sandisk Cruzer 16GB thumb drive.... CFG Loader or USB Loader GX?

    And what would be the best tool and format to format the thumb drive to?

    The UI on USB Loader GX is much smoother and intriguing than CFG, but both work well. However, I found that in some instances, CFG works better when in comes to playing a different variety of games. If you're formatting the thumb drive to WBFS, then WBFS Manager has a built-in format tool, which is quick and simple.

    I looked, but I can't find the format tool... I have Lexar BootIt tool to format it... I don't know if it can do WBFS or not

    I agree that you should use USB Loader GX. I have used a Sandisk Cruzer 8GB formatted as FAT32 and it worked.

    Make sure that your drive is formatted as FAT32 and then create a folder on it called "wbfs". This is where you will put your games, which will be wbfs files.

    To convert a game to a wbfs file, use Wii Backup Manager (if you don't know how to use it, just let me know and I'll help you out).

    Let me know how it goes.

    And make sure the drive is primary and set to active. I always use easus to format the drive to fat32. There is a link to the fat32 loading guide in the spoiler below.

    The cluster size should be set automaticly. So leave it at what is was by default.
