    Hi ive got a usb drive with 2 partions. 1 WBFS 200gb partition with all my wii games and a 40gb fat 32 partition which i planned to put my
    gba/snes/nes roms in. But heres the problem the newest versions of vbagx/snes9xgx/nesgx dont read my usb drive. Is it because i have
    2 partitions on my usb drive? or is it something else?

    The FAT partition needs to be first on the drive. The WBFS partition can be anywhere, but the FAT partition must be the first partition on the drive.

    I'd also watch out if you're trying to load ROMs from a hard drive. It works, but if you're using a WD hard drive it will go to sleep after a few minutes, and the emulators don't have support for this yet.
