    Just a quick noob question... if I want to have two partitions in my HDD (FAT32 for MPlayerCE and WBFS for the USB Loader GX) I have to create them before or after formatting the drive with the USB loader? I know that this is probably common sense for most of you, but I only heard about these partition things yesterday [​IMG]

    Partitions should be created before formatting.
    Make sure both partitions you create are primary. Also format the partition you want to use as WBFS to FAT32 before formatting it to WBFS
