    So I bought a 500gb hard drive and put all my wii games on it. It's 3/4 full. Then I decided to put some GameCube games on it but did not want to reformat it and lose my WBFS games and redo it all over again. I put the GameCube on another drive. Now I have some space left on that one.

    I was wondering is there any other types of games I could put on the HDD and load from there? Don't know, like PS1, Saturn, etc.

    Thanks

    you can convert your wbfs drive to fat32
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-convert-from-wbfs-to-fat32-or-ntfs.292391/

    fat32 is the format you want. it will work with everything...
    only wii games work under wbfs..
    and ntfs support is not that good

    you can load most emulators if not all from HDD, but they require fat32...
    there are emulators for ps1, genesis, gba, gbc, nes etc..
    there are plenty of them
    and yes you can put them on the hdd, you should look into the emulator pages and read info about them to know each case..
    for example, some emulatores can load games from any folder, others will need specific folders.

    however you can use a fat32 drive for everything. (as long as its primary partition, gamecube games require this)

    ps1 emulation is not really that great. i tried to play spyro the dragon, but this game doesn't work on it...
    am not sure if there is emulator for saturn, but i tried the genesis one
