    I'm currently using USB Loader GX, and while I absolutely love the interface I've had enough problems with it that I want to switch. I'm looking at Configurable USB Loader and uLoader. The biggest draw of uLoader to me is the support for NAND emulation of WiiWare/VC games and saved games/dlc. But how well does that run? Does it run fast enough to be usable every day? I mainly want it for expanding my Rock Band 2 DLC collection, since RB2 only supports 2GB SD cards. And what kind of compatibility is there, both for saved games and the WiiWare/VC games? Just a link to a compatibility list would be great.

    Also, is there any reason to run a FAT32 partition instead of a small FAT32 partition and a large WBFS partition?

    EDIT: And yes, I've seen this:

    for WiiWare/VC compatibility, I'm more wondering about saved games.

    Some WBFS drives get corrupted easily (it seems this happens if you formatted with certain WBFS managers then add games after removing others). There's also the ability to use the drive for things other than Wii games with FAT32.

    Really, if you already have a WBFS drive with a FAT partition for covers etc., then there is no real need to change over. However, if you are starting fresh, you should definitely start with FAT32 for the highest compatibility and usefulness.

    Well, I was using NTFS, but I wanted to switch since only Configurable and GX support it, plus I learned you can't rip new games. I'm really more concerned with which loader/IOSes I should use, but thanks for clearing up that FAT32 is actually better in all ways.

    How did you get it to work in GX? All I get is a black screen when I try to start a game up. Sometimes it even 'freezes' in the menu already. I can then browse games, but I can't click anything.

    You need to make sure you're using cIOS 222 as your "base/default." Go into the global game load settings and make sure 222 is selected. Also, unless you've enabled beta updates, you need to be using cIOS222 v4.

    Blah, installed v4 yet same thing happens. When I click a game, it sort of 'freezes' allowing me to only browse through the games and nothing more. Can't even go to settings.
    EDIT: Yes the CIOS is set to 222.
    EDIT2: Reinstalling USB Loader GX fixed it. It´s even working in IOS249 now. But I have IOS249v19 just so you know.
