I finally took the plunge and used wbfs2fat to convert my ancient WBFS drive to FAT32. I had been getting messages about save blocks and the like so I thought a bit of NAND emu might be the go. wbfs2fat is an absolutely fantastic conversion utility by the way. Conversion went well and only took about 30 seconds with no errors. I also copied the apps, wad, wiiflow and cfg folders to my new FAT32 partition from the SD. I ran up the Wii without the SD and HB channel asks to update, no problem there. I let it update and see that it has install v1 something on IOS 58. I press 1 to switch to the HDD and the option is greyed out. Ok! Putting the SD back in all the apps are back but I still can’t switch to the USB HDD the option is greyed out. I decide to test some games. I run up Wiiflow (r417) and it fails to find a valid partition. Fearing the worst I run up Cfg loader and after a complaint about not finding a WBFS partition I manually selected the USB partition and it finds all my backups and all of them seem to run ok. Thank goodness for that as I was starting to think I had screwed the drive. I have 3 questions really. Why won’t the HB channel see the USB FAT32 apps folder? Why won’t Wiiflow recognise the FAT32 partition? How do I get Cfg loader to auto run up the FAT32 partition without having to manualy select it?
