    Tired and fed up here

    2 hours searching and still no idea how to play a game from mem stick (4 GIG MAXELL)

    Used Xzero brilliant guide to get me up and running with the latest stuff

    Got a 500 gig HDD full o games, all good stuff

    but I would like the option of putting a few smaller games on a 4 gig stick

    and use it when the hard drive is at my sons house.

    Cant get a definative answer to using the stick from anywhere ive googled all day

    I would like a small FAT partition and WBFS Partition for a few games but my XP wont let me

    delete partition and start again.

    Any proper help would be amazing thanks if it happens. [​IMG]

    I don't think you can use memory sticks(the psp ones right?) for the wii,even with the adaptor it doesn't fit in the wii's sd card if you compare a sd card's back to a memory stick they are different shapes and sizes
    sorry,I was dissapointed too when I discovered this,but its nothing buying a 4gb sd card cant fix(their really cheap right now)

    I've used a 2gb sd card in a cheap usb converter

    12 in 1 you could try it could work but the usbloader might see 4 or so drives

    A memory stick your referring to is a 4GB USB memory stick/pendrive/flashdrive, correct?
    I use one all the time, as long as the game itself will fit. Format it with WBFS manager, or Wii Backup Manager for windows and your good.
    Why bother putting a partition on it?
    Your just gonna lose that more space on it, and a 4GB ain't gonna hold much at all, if one game.
    Or try what Longtom1 stated....................

    Thanks I'm trying to launch neogamma from my apps folder on the USB thru HBC
    but it asks me to load wbfs >> USB

    problem is I cant format the drive to wbfs when i try thru disc management the remove partition option is greyd out (using XP)

    Ideally I would like to partion the drive Fat 32(1mb) enough for apps folder with neogamma
    and a raw partition for my wbfs manager for a few low sized games (wii play and sports)

    But cant get the usb stick drive to RAW

    HELP pls - I'm goin insane!

    Why not use a sd card for your neogamma AND also just put your games on the 4GB USB stick formatted with WBFS manager? You DO know it has to be formatted with WBFS Manager, not disc management on your computer, right? Put BOTH in the Wii, load your Neogamma from HBC using SD card, choose load game from WBFS USB on Neogamma, and your all set.
    Your just racking your brain partitioning that USB stick...........

    Or, install Neogamma as a channel instead of loading it from HBC and a SD card. Just google Neogamma R8 .wad...........

    WBFS Manager won't let me format the drive - it's doin my head in

    maybe try another usb stick and like u said run the apps folder from sd

    does wbfs manager format FAT32? cant reformat to ntfs either!!! [​IMG]

    [OK TRIED ANOTHER STICK]
    formatted a sandisk cruzer 4 gig to fat32 opened wbfs manager and it formatted to wbfs ok

    loaded my files (apps) onto sd and all works great

    bloody maxell stick must be incompatible

    oh well thanks for your help everone
