I have been using a 5th Gen iPod for my external USB drive but that is starting to give me issues. I have a 1TB external sitting right next to it that I use for my Mac Mini that I am planning on adding a 120GB WBFS to. I was wondering if there is anything special I need to do to the partition in order to get the Wii to see the only the WBFS partition.
I use cLoader channels to start me ISO's and just want to make sure that this will work.
The drive is a iomega UltraMax, if that matters.

USB Loaders can detect a WBFS partition no matter its location on the hard drive. It is generally recommended that you set the WBFS partition as the second or later partition, since homebrew apps that read from USB (MPlayer, etc) usually only read the first (active) partition.
