    I got a WD Essntials 1TB! I formated into two almost even partitions (about 480-490 GB a piece)! I've loaded games on to both partitions with WBFS Manager 2.1! Now I was wondering how and if I can switch between the partitions within USB Loader?

    Doesn't it display all of your games from both in the list? If not, how many is it displaying? I know on my Wii my 41 games amount to about 90gb, I can't imagine how many you have listed, it may be limited to how many games it can show....

    I'm pretty sure it only shows one partition at a time because it shows the free disk space for that partition...and they both aren't full yet!

    Sort of on topic, can i partition my external hard drive that i use to back up all my movies to have a partition that i will be able to play wii back ups from?

    Along with keeping one partition for my work and movies.

    This is what I do. I have one partition that is Fat32 for movie stuff, and another in Wbfs for Wii games. I think both need to be a primary partition...I also have the Fat32 one first. Dunno if it makes a difference.

    Yes, you can make as many partitions as you like and still use one for Wii games! I was just wondering if there is a way to switch between two WBFS partitions within USB Loader?

    So it is possible to divide a HD in 2 and play games from it and still play movies in MPlayer???

    I tried it but it won't work. Made 2 partitions but MPlayer does not see it. The USB Loader works fine.

    Maybe try putting the mplayer partition at the beginning of the hard drive, and the wbfs at the end.
