    it has to be FAT partition, and primary partition

    and the wads still need to be in wad folder, unless you're using sorgg mod 1.4 of course.

    The partition can be as large as you like (mine is about 100GBs) BUT
    - it has to be the 1st partition on the disk (WFBS is then the 2nd)
    - it has to be a primary partition
    - it has to be formated with the FAT32 file system (FAT32 supports partitions up to 2TB, only Windows doesn't give you the option to format partitions larger than 32GB as FAT32)

    it doesn't have to be a FAT partition.
    FAT partitions are only supported to a size of 4GB (an old relict of the dos ära)

    Try switching your HD connection to the other USB port. I know its stupid, but it seems some programs prefer one or the other, and often they are not the SAME port. [​IMG]
