    Hey guys so I have 3 nintendo wiis and 2 of them work fine with usb loader gx pr wiiflow but the 3rd wii is giving me some issues I'm not sure why.

    Usb Loader GX loads fine and also shows all the gamecube games I have connected to my external hard drive.

    For some reason when I try to play a gamecube it says in order for me to gamecube games I have to set the main gamecube path. I go to settings and into custom paths and I see the gamecube path set to usb1/games but still nothing.

    Thanks in advance

    that's not the exact message.

    please, read the message carefully, because the solution is in that message.

    it probably told you to put the games on the "FIRST" "MBR" "PRIMARY" "FAT32" partition ? each word has its importance to know what your current setup issue is.

    ok, then if it only tells you about FAT32, it should means that you already have a proper "MBR" and "primary" setup.
    you only need to verify that your partition is FAT32, and not NTFS. (or exFAT, but I'm not even sure if the loader can detect it)

    Maybe your drive has a hidden partition ? so, the first FAT32 partition could be "usb2:/" instead of "usb1:/games"

    if you have 2 partitions (NTFS and FAT32), no need to convert NTFS to FAT32, just place the gamecube games on the second partition, and properly set the path to usb2:/games/
    nintendont will mount the first FAT32 partition of the drive, and will skip the ntfs.

    that's your problem. See? the solution was in the message.

    Nintendont works only with FAT32 and exFAT.
    USBLoader works with NTFS and FAT32.

    only FAT32 format is in common for both loaders.

    edit:
    if your computer refuse to format a big drive to FAT32, use this formatter :
