    I'm Starting from scratch and want to get everything right the first time. I remember somewhere that the vWii Needed to be Fat32 32 or 64 clusters but it seems like i also read that vWii needed 32kb clusters and Lodiine needed 64kb clusters. I've been looking for days. Does someone in the know know?

    I really have been looking through the stickied tutorials and couldnt find an answer
    Thanks

    It seems to depend on the game and who you ask. Many people swear by 64kb clusters. Others report some games working better with 32kb. My card was formatted as 32kb clusters, then I later reformatted with 64kb and I can't say I notice a difference.

    Apparently 64kb clusters can help with skipping cutscenes in some games however, so on balance I'd go with 64kb clusters. Don't expect miracle improvements however.

    My vWii still works fine with 64kb clusters, by the way.
