    Hey guys, I tried NTFS and FAT32, and found the following things.

    NTFS

    -Crashes, damages, and on windows it will be named :"Unformatted". Anyway to recover my damaged files? It became damaged by a code dump.
    -After installing game 100%, wait around 3 sec to complete.

    FAT32
    -No crashes so far.
    - After installing game 100%, takes 20sec+ To finish.

    Wich do you recommend? I personally dont like NTFS since it crashed and I lost everything.

    wtf, u installed a game to a ntfs hard drive using the wii? afaik that's impossible, writing to ntfs drives is unsupported (only read is supported)

    fat32 is best for the wii just because it can store homebrew and it supports both read/write

    i suspect your ntfs drive got corrupted because u SOMEHOW managed to get it to write to the drive, despite write access being blocked (I guess it wasn't blocked good enough, but u should've know better too)

    Is there a reason WBFS isn't included in the poll?
    It's not that I want you to use it, it's just strange to see it missing [​IMG]

    It's possible with GX. But it is stated clearly that it is unstable and has a high risk of corrupting the drive.

    Seems odd that an NTFS drive would show as unformatted!?

    If it got corrupt too badly, windows won't recognize it

    Using NTFS with GX is safe as well, as long as you don't rip games with it.

    I'm using NTFS on GX. Never had a problem with it. Also, never ripped games with it. [​IMG]

    even if some people dont want it do be true and spread FUD about it :

    a game does NOT use less space on WBFS then on FAT or NTFS

    one big FAT to share space is the way to go
    supported by usb-loaders, HBC, SNEEK, mplayer and most other homebrew
