    u can reformat your new drive as fat32 for best compatibility

    u can only launch apps off of FAT32 from the HBC

    most forwarder channels only launch off of fat32, but the new nforwarder 58 is also able to launch off of NTFS, which doesn't help most apps that don't support ntfs, but it will work just fine for cfg usb loader or wiiflow

    u can probably find a new v6 usb-loader forwarder in the configurable usb-loader thread

    I guess that also means i have to uninstall my old forwarder and then install the new one =/ Thanks for help. Will look more into this once i get home.

    EDIT: Is the new forwader that supports NTFS drive reading USBLoaderCFG - UCXF - IOS58 v6.wad? Im currently using CFG USBLoader - DCFG made by pepx

    EDIT2: Lol just noticed there was another topic above me clearly stating NTFS support [​IMG] Love GBAtemp like always!

    Specifically right now you can usb HBC, cios installer etc with a FAT32 USB drive.
    So you don't need an SD card except for initially hacking your wii.
