    Hi guys, hope you can help. I've just set up nintendont after purchasing a 1tb ext HDD for my Wii. Due to the windows restrictions on 32 gig partition size on fat32, how can I put more than 32 gigs of GameCube games on my drive? As soon as I partition over 32 gigs windows won't play ball?

    Try using Minitool Wizard Partition. That's always worked for me. I used it recently to format a 64gb micro SD card to FAT32.
