    I'v been trying to install a game onto my HDD which is formatted to fat32 in usb loader gx and i just get a code dump error. I also tried deleting my config folder and i still get the error even though i can install a game onto my wbfs format. So is it something wrong on my end or is that feature just not yet possible on the latest USB Loader GX?

    Thanks :)

    I'm using the latest revision. R849. Which supports fat32 game loading. Just didn't know if I could install to that same fat32 partition.

    did you installed the Hermes cIOS v4? did you converted the .iso images in .wbfs with wbfs_file? i have r850 and it works fine on FAT32 HD

    Yes i installed Hermes v4 and everything. I can run games off of my FAT32 perfectly. I'm concerned with being able to install a game from a disc onto the Fat32 within the usb loader gx app like you can do if you are using a WBFS partition

    This is what i want to know.

    I am thinking about formatting my drive to Fat32 for a multitude of reasons, but if I can not move games from the wii straight onto the partition i can not see any point to this

    Yeah you cant directly put games on the fat32 through the wii. I've been testing. the only solution i can think of is for example say you have a 120GB HDD, format 115gb to fat32 and then 5gb wbfs just so you can put games directly onto your HDD whenever necessary

    Yeh this is what I think I am going to do then.

    I am going to do a 10GB partitions of WBFS (so i can do dual layer games) and then do the rest in FAT32

    Cheers

    Installing to a fat32 partition from within the loader should work just fine. It worked for me.

    Really? could you tell me your specs and stuff. which revision of usb loader gx? what kind of hard drive? a game or two you've installed? and whats the latest cios you've installed?

    thanks

    It worked before the BCA and one directory per game support was added. You can't dump discs from revision 847 onwards.

    IIRC Revision 844 was ok.

    I've been racking my brains over this too! Hopefully they'll fix it up [​IMG]
