    Multiple Partitions on USB Stick Storage, External Hard Drive, Pen Drive And hack Windows to recognize all the USB partition as LOCAL DISK.


    This tutorial will allow you to create partitions on any USB Stick storage or External Hard Drive

    Now you can make WBFS Partition for Wii USB Loader, And other FAT36 or NTFS, and access the two partition from Windwos so can copy your Wii Games from Windows too!

    Can i ask, is this just for general partitioning, or does making it appear as "Local Disk" create any advantages?

    Like i use Partition Magic to do all my partitioning. Is this just the same method?

    And one last question, whats the difference between a Primary Partition and a Logical Partition, and does this make a difference when formatting to WBFS?

    As the title : recognize all the USB partition as LOCAL DISK.
    does making it appear as "Local Disk" ? YES!

    You can use Partition Magic !

    You must make them all as Primary ! Recommended ....
    IDK if logical one work with WBFS !

    Ah, the Hitachi Microdrive "filter" driver. More complicated than the solution I posted in this thread (http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=147277&st=0&gopid=1901502), but more effective, of course. I'd try the BootIt solution, then try using this driver if that doesn't work.

    Thanks for the writing a tutorial on this! I neglected to mention it in my post because writing how to use that driver would take a bit of text and screenshots, haha.

    So, what is the advantage ?

    You will be able to make two partition or more of any USB Device , For example :
    1st. partition FAT32 For windows Usage !
    2nd. partition WBFS For wii Usage !

    Now what is the difference ?
    It will show the two disk as local one so you can transfer game from Windows too the Wii Partition too!....

    But if I use the stick storage in another pc it will not access my ntfs partition. It will just ask me to format
