- I use a Huawei 250gb FlashDrive & formatted it to Fat32 with 64kb clusters
- I used a different program before on formatting my flashdrive to fat32, and now I used rufus but both had the same problem: not uitilizing all of my space
- When I copy games/files onto the drive that exceed the 32gb capacity, the files would not appear and the folder it came with would be undeleteable unless you scan and repaired the drive.

Why does this occur?

Ive tried it 2 times now with different games and it never allows me to add more when it exceeds 32gbs but I really want to use the flashdrive, it would be such a waste.

Things Ive also tried were:
- Reformatting the drive
- Formatting to exfat - ofcourse USBloadergx doesn't revognize it
- formatting to NTFS (Ive only plugged it in once and USBLoadergx did not show my games, however I have heard people just re-plugging it in and the wii was able to read it then. Im in the process of doing that, just copying a game on it again)

you should be fine with NTFS and if USBloader does not read it reinstall it and before starting it the first time plug the Drive

I formated a Micro SD to NTFS 64GB and using windows and the games are read fine on my wii

    i bent pins on the cpu socket bay and my cpu was wigging out

    luckily i was able to unbend the bastards and get my pc booting again

    on the flip side, i was able to give the dingus machine that i nearly screwed the cpu up on a solid state drive

    and i cleverly got the idea to move the pagefile to it

  • AliceCE @ AliceCE:
    i think my ram's slower than that solid state drive, jesus christ

  • AliceCE @ AliceCE:
    it seems like the pc chugs, then gets exponentially faster after what i can only assume is the pc running out of physsey

    whereas before it just chugged no matter what

    slow pagefile, slow ram, now the pagefile's leaving poor phrammy in the dust

    I deal with bent CPU pins on a almost daily basis...

    bent cpu pins are my fav, love unbending them and then bending even more by accident.

  • Digitalcat @ Digitalcat:
    Hate how they are getting thinner and thinner.

  • Veho @ Veho:
    Didn't they invent those nubs and contacts a while ago so we wouldn't have to deal with a million pins when plugging in a CPU?

    What happened to that?

    I think Intel still uses LGA?

    not to well known with the newer CPUs

    New AMD is still on pins Intel went LGA but rumor is they are swapping with AMD going LGA and Intel maybe going back to pins
