    Gambia, The
    Hello guys, im about to buy a External Hard Drive for my Wii U.
    I want to store backups of my Wii & Gamecube Games (and also play them).
    Now I'm not entireley sure because I remember from back in the day where I used a wbfs manager for the Wii Games, and for Gamecube games you could only use FAT 32 (which kinda limits your space to 32GB allthough there was a workaround where you could format a harddrive bigger than 32GB to Fat32.)

    So in a Nutshell:
    Will Nintendont work with NTFS.
    Can I store both GC AND WII games on the Harddrive?

    i had mine formatted to FAT32, and i got the issue of Metroid Prime 3 not loading. i reformatted to NTFS and that fixed my issue, so i'd suggest that format to avoid such issues
