    What would you say is the most useful file system for accessing a HDD with the Wii (via apps such as emulators and Mplayer?)

    Thanks for the help [​IMG]

    FAT32 is the only file system supported by most homebrew applications. It's also the "better" file system for this (less overhead, slightly faster) unless you want to deal files bigger than 4GB, which FAT32 does not support.
