    Best file type for WODE?

    Gonna order the WODE next week and get it for christmas.

    My question is, what filetype is best for the WODE? As of right now, I have a WBFS using wiiflow. I would like to use NTFS or FAT32, for simplicity reasons.

    Whats the best?

    Best is such a complex notion.

    For ripping you can use both NTFS and FAT32, amongst others.

    For ease of use NTFS is the way to go. Especially when swapping back and forth between the PC and the Wii.

    The least useful is sadly WBFS.

    At the end of the day it is up to you and your needs. I use NTFS for all my games.

    What I have done is use WiiBackupManager to simply convert all my ISO games to the wbfs game format. Now the game format is great. It is small and it plays perfectly. It is only the WBFS hard drive format that is to much hassle for me to use.

    So on a 500GB hard drive I can have nearly 300 games if I wanted. Currently have 268 (for testing purposes) on a single drive formatted to the NTFS format.
