    Ok, I've been running my WAD's from my SD card since they could be... but since I have a HD and quite a large one at that, I'd like to start running my WADs from there...

    I've created a FAT32 partition, and a folder called 'wad'... but when I try to use WADManager 1.4, it gives me a Ret -1 error...

    it's a 320 drive, with 1/4 of it as FAT32, and the rest WBFS

    drive A: wbfs, drive B: fat32

    no, they really aren't A and B, but that's the easiest way to tell you HOW it's partitioned...

    Gambia, The
    Easiest way to tell how the HDD is partitioned, is to tell partition 0 is formatted as x and 1 is formatted as y.

    Anyways, i'm not sure, but did your try all 4 combinations of usb 1.1 and usb 2.0 and the 2 ports? It could be that usb 1.1 only works with the top port, while usb 2.0 only works with the bottom one.

    part0=WBFS
    part1=fat32

    I've tried all 4 diff configs

    1.1 on top and bottom
    2.0 on top and bottom

    all 4 give me Ret-1

    Just a guess, but maybe it can only install wads from partition 0?

    Gambia, The
    wbfs works fine as 2nd partition, that's something Waninkoko had in mind for wbfst. But every driver that should access filesystems on the 2nd partition has to be written to do that, and most people are lazy and don't write it.

    Maybe partition it to just FAT, not FAT32?

    Use diskmgmt.msc?
