    Hi,

    I'm currently using an 80GB hard drive I connect to the Wii through the USB ports, which holds all my Wii ISOs. Obviously it's formatted to the WBFS format.

    Basically, I'd like to format a small section of it to FAT32, maybe about 5GB, that I can use for homebrew / emulation / media centre etc.

    Any ideas how I go about it without losing the data already on the disc?

    Thanks!

    u can't resize a partition without losing whats already on it.

    I recommend u backup all your games

    then use ModMii's USB-Loader Setup Feature to help u setup your HDD as 100% FAT32 (which can now be used just as good as wbfs to store wii games, even 8GB games work as they can be split into 4GB parts)
