    Only one partition can be "active" on a drive. Just format the drive as FAT32 with 32K clusters if possible. Gamecube loaders require FAT32 amd Wii games work fine when copied to the drive using Wii Backup Manager to make them into wbfs files. Just set it to split large games so they fit in the 2GB file size limit.
