    Im not sure what 2 partitions mean. what i think it means is that i can have 200gb for wbfs and 200gb for fat32. if im right, how could i do that without deleting all my games? i have usb loader,wiiflow and cfg loader. if you read this please message back and dont ignore.

    You have two flash drives. One is formatted as fat32 and the other as NTFS. Now, you got one flash drive the size of the previous two and you want to keep the settings from the first two flash drives while transferring everything to the new one. In order to do this, though, you need a program that will let you divide storage capacity so you don't lose all your information. I used the EaseUS Partition Manager for this; it was the easiest way I could find.

    Oh, and welcome to the 'Temp; make sure you start a thread in the Introductions forum here.

    :lol: Okay. Which one do you want to convert? I'm guessing H since it's in the portable section. You should just be able to click the Format option. If it brings up a dialog box saying how you want to format it, then you want fat32 with 64K clusters. None of your hard drives have WBFS formatting, just 3 NFTS and one fat32, fyi...

    But you wanted two partitions on there... hum. After you format the partition, right click on it and it should give you an option to split: just drag the line to wherever you want it. Then you can format the new half you just created to whatever you want. :)

    OMG did you save them to your computer? If you didn't, you can always rip them to your drive again; just stick it in your Wii and run the Install Disc option in WiiFlow :D

    Well I didn't know that since I didn't need to convert from WBFS to fat32; thanks. Sorry about that, iDzn4g; but at least you have the (proper) partition manager.
