    I have a 16 gb cruzer flash drive..

    i am trying to partition this flash drive, but have read through steps and cannot figure out how to do so.

    I am questioning how to create the partition.
    There is a program CALLED BootIt, which recognizes the flash drive as a non-removable disc (making it possible to format)
    but it does not work to me.

    there are many apps that do this, but wii backup manager is the best (in my opinion)

    the flash drive has to be fat32 (or wbfs or ntfs)

    the program will automatically convert the game from iso to wbfs format (if using a fat32 drive). they must be saved in the following folder SD/USB:/wbfs/gameid/game.wbfs or SD/USB:/wbfs/game.wbfs

    if the image is scrubbed or sparsed to be under 4gb, it can be launched if it is saved as an iso

    if this sounds confusing, dont worry about it, the program does all this automatically, u can thank fig2k4 for all the work he's put into it

    Oh, yes, the USB Loader you need to use is Configurable USB Loader. USB Loader GX also works, but it stopped working for me for no reason whatsoever.
