    Ok I've got a flash drive. I want to be able to use it with my computer and my wii without having to reformatt it all the time... I need to partition it right? What program should I use for that? K I have Neogamma R7 installed on my Wii so I can boot a game that way right? I'm planning for now to only have 1 game at a time on my flash drive (Its an 8 gig...). So I don't need any stuff like coverflow or anything do I? What else am I missing?

    U said u have NeoGamma installed on ur Wii, that's impossible... well, u may want to say that u have install a channel of NeoGamma ?

    NeoGamma as any other USBLoader is an application that can be run trough ur SD card using Homebrew Channel (do u have install this HBC) ?

    If u want to use ur Flashdrive for Game and for utility then, u need to partition one part as FAT32 and the other part as WBFS.... So u can use EASEUS Partition Master to create two partition, one will be format by this same programm, while the other will be format by either WBFS Manager or WBFS Intelligent GUI).

    Hope this help.

    My tutorial includes a solution that should recognise your drive. See the sig.
