Softmodded and installed Wiiflow and CULoader.

Wiiflow does not load any games though ? Just freezes and i have to unplug wii or just takes me back to HB channel.

I recommend you install configurable usb loader through modmii and then you can have usb hdd in ntfs format for the games with a fat 32 partition for the covers on the fat32 partition you put the files modmii has generated for the usb on the ntfs partition you put a folder called wbfs and all the games go in this folder if you have dvd's you put the game in the wii open the cfg loader and press the + button on the wii about 20mins later the game will be on the hdd then you press 1 on the remote to download the covers

I have no idea about wiiflow or culoader cfg just works

So how do i create a Fat32 partition on the the ext Hdd for the files (which normally i would put on an sd card)?

Will Modmii do it for me when its plugged into my pc ? I just direct it to that drive path the use wii backup manager to add games which i already have in wbfs format ?

The procedure just seems a bit confusing.

Thanks

There is the formatting tool in the downloads section
Code:
You don't have permission to view the code content. Log in or register now.
Personally, I would not split the drive into partitions unless you need to use it for different purposes. Everyone has their own preference.

I'd just use a fat32 filesystem. The only drawback is that you can't transfer files over 4gb to it. However, wiibackup manager converts iso files and splits them if necessary.

(N.B wbfs file system is not the same as wbfs file types)

Modmii will download a formating tool for you if you answer the question about where do you store files you can use windows explorer then to copy the files across to the wbfs folder on the hdd
but as abu baniaz says you can just format the whole drive to fat32 but you still need to create a new folder and then rename it to wbfs for the games all the files that normally live on the sd should be on the hdd

Cheers Guys, will do it this way on next wii.

This one with WBFS and sd card is working fine so can not be bothered to alter it.

Which files do i delete on the sd card to remove Letterbomb in case the kids mess it up ?

boot.elf or bootmin.elf or private ???

Thanks
