    I understand after you format your USB drive to use it for the wii you can rip games to it from your wii.

    But can you copy ISO files that you have already ripped to it from your computer? or do you have to burn them to dvd then rip them from dvd to the USB drive?

    Also how do you patch games with BrickBlocker if the USB drive can't be seen by a PC?

    There are several WBFS GUI programs available for download such as WBFS Manager 2.0. Give it a whirl.

    Correct.
    Grab WBFS and either use a GUI or use the actual ee file in a DOS command line.

    Type wbfs.exe /? at CMD to get the correct syntax.

    It is. What I did was go into Vista's disk management, shrink my external HDD's partition, then format the unallocated space as a new partition. Then I used the Wii to format the second partition while keeping the first one intact.

    You can try to use gparted on a ubuntu live CD, but it is a little bit risky.
    Can't you just backup your disk before partionning ?

    My hard drive is 300g and i have all my other stuff that doesn't fit backed up on my USB which is 750g but 500g used.

    So there is no room to back stuff up [​IMG]

    Guess i have to get a new USB external drive.
