    Not sure if this question has already been asked.

    Is it generally better to format your hard drive to WBFS via PC with WBFS Manager or via Wii with USB Loader?

    I read on USB Loader WikiTemp that some hard drives work better when format WBFS via PC; all users that submit this has hard drives with spindown issues, please explain if possible?

    My specs:

    Wii 4.0u
    Wiikey 2
    cIOS Rev 10
    HomeBrew Channel 1.0.3
    Configurable USB Loader v32
    WD Passport Essential 320GB (no spindown issues I'm aware of)

    You are fine either way ...

    I like managing it from my PC personally, but really makes no difference.

    Thanks for quick reply. I plan on formatting later in the day, just want more inputs.

    Maybe I should have posted in Wii Hacking forum but it's more USB Loader related.

    Anyone else, opinions?

    It is a simple answer, unless you want others to confirm what I said ...

    It makes no difference.
