    I'm trying to install USB Loader on my Wii, but everytime I boot it up with my USB in, it says "No WBFS or FAT/NTFS partition found", and makes me format the USB, which defeats the purpose, because my game I want to play is on there, so it erases it.. =(

    USB Loader GX

    cIOSv19

    I believe it's just a USB adapter with a Sandisk micro SD in it. It still functions as a USB though.

    I have no idea how to partition it to WBFS or FAT...

    Right from what perspective? Right port from the front of the Wii, or looking from the back?

    You're house!
    To partition it to WBFS you'll need WBFS Manager. I'd go with having WBFS because it is much easier. It will make the game compressed unlike if you use Fat32 you'll need the ISO into different parts =/

    if you are looking at the usb doors with the wii standing up, you should connect the usb to the one on the right

    those adapters are dodgy, you might not get luck
    any way, formate it to fat32 in the PC and try again
