    I know that DIOS MIOS is set to work on drives with a low-level 512 byte formatting. My 4TB drives (that has my Wii games) is one of the advanced format drives with a low-level 4096 byte formatting.

    Does anyone have a version that works on advanced format drives?

    TIA

    I think someone tried to update the sources to allow 4k drives (it was either 512 or 4096, not both).
    But I don't remember if it worked.
    if it did, it's buried in the DIOS MIOS (Lite) thread, but there's maybe only his comment and no sources or patches.

    I believe using a higher sector size was impossible in DIOS MIOS due to low amount of space in CPU cache or something like that (it has to do with the way the thing boots), but that shouldn't be a problem in NINTENDONT which works as a native Wii app.
