    Has anybody made it so we can put wii ISO's on a WiiU formated HDD? im currently using a USB stick to swap ISO files, but i wish to use my WiiU formated HDD as i got lots of memory available to put files on it. my GCN games would also be nice to place on there, but i can deal with running them on a SD card.

    No, as WiiU disks are encrypted and most likely decrypting them on the fly as required by cios for running games would be too hard for a Wii

    On the other hand, (while as of today there are significant inconveniences and imperfections) you can use a FAT32 disk for WiiU mode with the latest builds of Mocha (and no other cfw, for now)

    Yes and you would then also need to load your wiiu games using loadiine which has horrible loading times for a number of games.

    better keep separate hdds for vwii and wiiu becuase fat32 loadiine is just to slow nd some games take forever to load, dont go there really.

    No, in fact one of said limitations is that you can't directly install titles to a FAT32 disk, so you would have to backup (over ftp, etc) the contents of your encrypted disk and paste then in the fat32 one
