    Many emulators (found here: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/List_of_homebrew_emulators) can read from FAT partitions.
    The folder structure needed by the emulator is usually the same as it'd be on SD card

    All emulators ending on "GX" should work from USB [​IMG]

    Well, put the /apps/ folder with the emulator of your choice on the FAT32 partition and the roms in the right folders on the FAT32 partition. Press 1 when in the latest HBC and select USB Drive. Then start the emulator!

    Damn you, tj_cool!
