    I'm using a WD Passport USB drive and this weekend I'd like to move from a WBFS Partition to a FAT32 partition. I'm not quite sure of the steps involved, so can someone point out if I make any mistakes?

    Move all games from WBFS partition to computer hard drive.

    Scrub ISOs (Some have been scrubbed, some haven't).

    Convert USB drive to FAT32.

    Use Wii Game Manager to install .iso files onto FAT32 drive as .wbfs files.

    ==Wii==
    Install cIOS rev.19 (Which base do I use??)

    Install Hermes cIOS (Some say v4, some say v5; which one?)
    202 BASE 60
    222 BASE 38
    223 BASE 37
    224 BASE 57

    Hook up USB drive, reconfigure USB Loader to use cIOS 222 to load games and set FAT32 partition for storage, etc.

    Does this sound reasonable? Which base do I need to use for cIOS rev.19? IOS249? Which version of Hermes cIOS do I need to use?

    Thanks.

    Great.

    Yes, of course I meant reformat to FAT32.

    I don't need mic support, so I guess base 57 for IOS249.

    I'll be using USB Loader GX. Since you recommend Hermes cIOS v4, I'll be using that.

    Are there more detailed instructions for using USB Loader GX?

    Thanks again. Your post helped clear quite a few things up.

    Not really. I don't use USB Loader GX (aka USB Loader GUI). I stick with Configurable USB Loader, which has a version specifically for IOS 222 (other one is for 249). I would imagine there is a global setting somewhere for which IOS to use.

    No problem. Glad to have helped.

    Just make sure your partition on your hard drive is a primary parition (not extended) and is set to active.

    Thanks again.

    Got everything updated and games work just fine from USB Loader GX.

    Actually, to clarify (since there seems to be some confusion about this in this thread), Wanikoko's rev 19 works perfectly fine with games on FAT32. I've had a few games that seem to work better with it than with the Hermes cIOS, so it's a good alternative.
