    First post (woot woot)! Tried posting this at Wiihacks.net but didn't get an answer. My problem is i cannot get my N64 games running off my USB. And yes I have installed 2 different USB "fixes". I think it might be an IOS problem, any help?


    Additional info:
    Wii 3.2u
    USB: WD 500GB MyPassport FAT32
    PunEmu gives me a black screen (if that helps)

    If you have huge wii games then NTFS is better because of no 4GB limit.
    @mrpinkeye:
    I have a 500GB HDD splitted to 350GB NTFS and 100GB FAT32. The other 50GB are EXT test partitions [​IMG]

    The only difference is that you will have two files instead of one.
    And you will only notice that when actively looking for it.
    That's totally worth the hassle of splitting the available space.

    Well there are those who insist on playing *.iso files instead of *.wbfs files.
    That requires NTFS for no apparent reason.

    but doesnt fat 32 have a limit of how many files at thr ROOT of a device. tried copying 200 songs to an sdhc at the root couldn't work.
    just trying to list the advantages of ntfs over fat32.
