    I am totally new to the USB Loader Scene and i just have some questions to ask.
    There are so many USB Loaders I have seen which one is the best/most popular? (i like the look of USB Loader GX)
    Which is the best WBFS Manager? (the thing that lets you add games to your HD and format it)
    Do you have to add all games at once or can you keep adding them later?
    I also want to put all my backups onto my harddrive can i just dump them on my HD with the loader?
    I am on 4.0E and have cIOS rev9 installed and my harddrive is a 120gb HP Media Pocket Drive.

    I just got USB Loader GX today and I'm using it with my flash drive, it's working great. I used this to format it and add a game. [​IMG]

    I use the Coverflow loader by Beardface and WBFS manager by AlexDP. Best way to go imo.

    i use a 1 tb and use the usb loader gx due to the response time with games, as beardfaces' is a little slower to pick through games. and also WBFS Manager 3.0.1. keep on the lookout for a few new loader interfaces coming soon it looks like.

    Why in the HELL would anyone need 1TB for their Wii?

    I have a 160GB and I thought that was too much space.

    I have a 750gb and I'm close to hitting 400gb. I could probably eliminate 30 games that I am on the fence about which would put it below 300gb, but you have to assume there are many good to great games to come. So while 1TB may be to much, I think 500gb may be just right and 750gb just in case.

    BTW: Anyone know what the maximum size a WBFS partition can be. I know on the xbox you could size it any size but anything over 512gb would cause data corruption.

    WBFS is limited to 512 but there may be a work around for it

    You already asked this in another thread. Right click on the hard drive partition in the Disk Manager and assign it a drive letter.

    also if in vista besure to run as admin. Then select format in manager. Close program and unplug drive. Now re connect drive and also run manager as admin.

    P.S. 1TB is the limit.
