    So I have a 160Gb external HDD and I want to know the best way to use both Wii and GC games from it using WiiFlow.

    What do I need?

    File system: FAT32/NTFS/WBFS?

    How do I set it up? Please try to explain as simply as possible, as I'm not experienced in this matter. I've only ran Wii games from a WBFS drive before.

    Edit: I figured it out.

    Putting it here for my personal future reference.

    Pre-Requisites
    1. Modded Wii
    2. Nintendont
    3. Empty USB HDD
    4. Backed up games
    5. Wii Backup Manager
    PC side:

    1. Use Wii Backup Manager to format the drive to FAT32. This will also create the wbfs folder for your Wii games.
    2. Transfer your Wii games to the wbfs folder using Wii Backup Manager.
    3. Create a new folder on the root of your USB HDD and name it "games" (without quotation marks).
    4. Copy your GameCube games to the /games/ directory. Subdirectories are optional for 1-disc games in ISO/GCM and CISO format.
      • For 2-disc games, you should create a subdirectory /games/MYGAME/ (where MYGAME can be anything), then name disc 1 as "game.iso" and disc 2 as "disc2.iso".
      • For extracted FST, the FST must be located in a subdirectory, e.g. /games/FSTgame/sys/boot.bin .
    5. Connect your storage device to your Wii.

    Wii Side

    1. Start The Homebrew Channel.
    2. Launch Nintendont.
