    Hello,
    I would like to backup my disc games to internal storage, so i do not have to switch and search the discs all the time. Unfortunately the 32GB are fare to rare, so i decided to extend storage. As installing games to SD is not possible afaik, i think USB is needed.
    For my games 128gb should be enough I think.
    An USB Stick I do not like due to the limited possibillities for further uses. So I would like to go for SD or external HDD.

    So: Is it possible to use an MicroSD to USB adapter to use a 128gb SD card for installing games? Or do I have to go for an external HDD?
    Thanks, Edizius

    Ok, thank you.
    A short 2nd question: I think i read here somewhere that partitioning a part of an external hdd to wiiu format and an other part qs fat32 will not work. Is this atill the case?

    Can there be used fat32/ NTFS soon due to signpatch or will this never going to happen?
