    Hi,

    I've got an 8GB SDHC card and I only plan on holding only 1 or 2 games, how would I go about partitioning so that 1GB of it is for HBC/Ocarina/SD card menu (FAT/NTFS) and 7GB being WBFS for the USB Loader games I plan to hold?

    I've tried deleting the volume in Windows Vista but it doesn't give me that option.

    You need to get partitioning software such as Partition magic or something similar.
    then create 2 partitions via that your first partition needs to be FAT format normally primary partition and the second logical partition formatted to WBFS using WBFS Manager 3.

    Hope this helps ya.

    out of nowhere....
    You can't partition memory cards. I have seen some work rounds by changing the structure of the windows driver for them but when you put it in a PC without the driver it looks a mess as it cant read it. You also run the risk of data corruption.

    What are you talking about? Just because Windows doesn't give you the option doesn't mean it's perfectly possible.

    You can partition an SD card using gparted in Ubuntu (live) really easily. I've never done it with WBFS though, I just have a single WBFS partition on my SDHC card which I use through a USB reader.
