    Which combination of CISO, FAT32, NTFS, WBFS ,or any others I have missed, is currently the best? i.e CISO on NTFS. I would be grateful for your input.

    Most people use .wbfs files with FAT32/NTFS I believe.

    Thanks for your reply! I have a 1 Terabyte HD. What proportion do you think I should for format it? How much for FAT32 and how mush for NTFS?

    You can go full NTFS if you want. Only loader that can't load from NTFS is NeoGamma, and that can't load from FAT32 either. Or am i mssing a loader?

    uneek is fat.

    triiforce/mighty channels is fat on emu nand.

    It's worth keeping a few gb 10?? fat32 32k cluster size in case you want to use uneek or mighty channels in the future. You can read all about that on this site.

    I use FAT32, not a single problem. You can use Wii Game Manager to load games onto the FAT32 drive and convert them to .wbfs format. If the .wbfs file is greater than 4gb, Wii Game Manager will auto split it into *.wbfs and *.wbf1 files. Your loader will handle all of it, no need for you to do anything different.

    How about installing .wad's from a HDD? Does any installer support NTFS?
