USB Loader GX 3.0 Won't Recognize Multiple Partitions

Do you use an external hard drive to play back ups or multiple USBs?

    I'm using a Seagate Back Up + Slim 3.0/2.0 1TB external Hard Drive. I have A WBFS partition of 700GB and a FAT32 231GB partition on the drive. I use WBFS Manager 3.0 to load games onto the 700GB partition and I simply drag and drop GC ISOs into the FAT32 Partition. USB Loader GX recognizes the WBFS parition but not the FAT32 partition. Is there a way I should add GC ISOs to my FAT32 partition? The method I am using is the same method I used when I played Gamecube ISO from a USB (8gb). The Gamecube ISO has been optimized with DMLizard.

    I bought a 1TB Toshiba Canvio Slim II, formatted it as FAT32 with 32k Clusters. I use Wii Backup Manager 0.4.5 to transfer Wii ISOs to it. I drag n' drop Optimized DMLizard GC ISOs into it. Both of which play just fine

    After you transfer everything over you should try reformatting the Seagate the same way you formatted the Toshiba, just to see if it works. Most of the time it's not the harddrive, but how it's formatted that causes the issue. Especially if your FAT32 partion wasn't the Primary partition, or set as Active. -- You could still have a perfectly good "Wii-capable" harddrive on your hands.

    There's an option on USB Loader GX that's lets you choose ALL partitions which should've allowed both partitions to be viewed. But you might've still had issues trying to get the GC ISO's to run since most GC loaders need the partition, with the GC games on it, to be both Primary and Active, as well as being FAT32 with 32kb clusters.
