    HBC stopped looking for apps on USB after finding my WBFS formatted hard drive. Your hard drive for usb loaders has to be powered off for HBC to detect your other drive.

    Reformat your HDD with a Fat32 partition and a WBFS partition, and mark the Fat32 partition as active, that way you can throw your homebrew apps on the fat32 partition for the HBC, and still maintain a WBFS Partition

    lol what?.......

    WBFS is for loaders, HBC needs a FAT32 SD/USB partition for apps, so if you want HBC to load apps off USB and still have loaders use WBFS you need to partition the drive in 2, one half FAT32 and the other WBFS, alternately you can partition the whole drive to FAT32 for both apps and loaders but you would need a loader with FAT support like CFG or GX

    lol what yourself.

    I tried loading apps from a flash drive but HBC won't load them if my WBFS drive is powered on, once it detects it and realizes it can't read anything it won't check the other usb port, which is stupid.

    did you not read right?
    you have to partition your drive to have both WBFS & FAT32 on the same drive.
    HBC only checks port 0 for FAT32 drives.

    I think you're mistaken, it looks at all the USB devices attached (even if they're connected via a hub) and picks the first one that looks like a mass storage device.
