    They are busy with FAT support
    Its almost done though

    And they started on SD card loading as well

    GX already has the code to load banners, but maybe it just uses too much memory or something

    because the USB ports don't work in Gamecube mode.

    if you're using GX, why do you want to load games with the system menu?

    2 things i would like pls:
    a special button just for mii channel
    easier loading of wiiware/VC games (some sort of integration into the carousel).

    Not going to happen - In gamecube mode, any hardware the Gamecube didn't have is disabled.

    Woohoo!!! [​IMG] I can't wait! I actually have yet to start storing games on a USB hard drive. I might just have to pick up the Western Digital Passport 500 GB on Black Friday. I read it's going for $60-$70.

    What is the advantage of GX for loading games from a FAT (or FAT32??) partition?
    - Will the games be smaller (or larger because the iso file are always 4 Gb)?

    I am using WBFS to put the games on the disc, just works perfect.

    After doing more research from various forums, I finally figured out that despite the fact that my flash drive was supported in the compatibility list, I needed to use a different flash drive to get the games to work that were previously not loading and giving me black screens.
    After switching drives, All of the games that gave me problems despite being in the same region as my console, finally work and play with no problems.

    Hope this solution helps anyone that may run into the same problem down the road.
    Thanks again SenorClean for the help on the .bnr issue.

    Victory.

    I watched the video review, but I couldn't figure out how to install games...
    Do you need to have the disc in the wii to install, or can you have the game on your USB and install it that way? If so, what is the path needed? Any help is appreciated.

    Installing is the processing of ripping the disc onto the usb. What happens when you hit the install button?

    If you want ISO from your PC on the drive, use a WBFS manager
    else, just insert the disc and rip em [​IMG]

    I'm not convinced, the register that controls enabling access to hardware is known.

    It's potentially just hard and nobody cares.

    Game size is about the same. The main advantages are:
    1. WBFS Manager isn't a necessity. .wbfs can be dragged and dropped onto your hard drive.
    2. No need for partitioning. Games, HBC and apps, downloaded cases and disc pictures, etc. can be all on the same formated single partition. In the end you won't have wasted space because of unusable WBFS or an oversized FAT.

    More about this is discussed in the FAT VS WBFS thread.

    I may sound like a noob but if you format it on your Wii do you lose all the other data on your Hard Drive?
