    Hi, i've got 2 Partitions on my external HDD one for my USB loader (which works fine) and another i use for my computer, however i have some videos on it i wanted to watch on MPlayer but for some reason it wouldn't read the USB at all. is there anyway i can get it to read the other partition (i think its fat32) or am i stuck and need to use another external HDD or USB stick if i wanna use it for Mplayer??

    You're movie partition needs to be Fat32 and be 1st on the drive.

    I dont mean to bitch (but now Im about too)

    Movie playing on the Wii could stand to be improved.
    MPlayer has a terrible HDD detection (nothing I do can get it to recognise either or my drives).
    Geexbox is ok. At least it reads the drive. Its still a bit screwy though.
    Controlling the menus with a Wiimote is iffy and the menu system is hardly intuitive.

    I'm great full for everything I get (I mean just being able to play video is amazing).
    I just feel the software could do with improving.
