    Great work. Totally impressed! I wish this was about just after Xmas!

    Anywho, just an observation I've had...
    I decided to install PriiLoader to mine to boot it straight to the USB Loader I'm now using (WiiFlow is by far the best and I've used the 3 top ones so far!)

    Doing this I feel stops the kids from updating on the web or deleting shit they know nothing about causing me more work to repair it. Plus, with WiiFlow it has a Parental Lock on what happens in the WiiFlow GUI.

    Perhaps mention of the proceedure to install it added? I would type it up to help, but mine was setup by a lot of trial and error - a lot of patience - and far too much time!

    Cheers DejaVu,
    I have just looked it up and watched a few vids and yes i agree very impressive - so i download it, complete with animated forwarder. Went on a treat only thing is all my games are on a fat32 drive, and it was calling for a wbfs drive, do you know if they do a fat32 dol? like they have for cfg.
    We could sort out some usb loader packs complete with themes and forwarders and the best way to set them up, no probs.

    renke, have you come accross this amazing app?

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    I stumbled accross it because for one reason or another, the wbfs intelligent gui wouldn't recognise my drive. This did instantly, and also supports ciso files, and allows extraction from usb hdd to elsewhere with conversion on the fly etc...

    It really is a great app, and so easy to use.

    WiiFlow at the moment doesnt recognise a FAT32 drive. I spent all day yesterday copying my game off just to reformat it to WFBS.

    There is no information yet on whether or not they'll implement FAT32 support on the WiiFlow's site, but my HD is dedicated to the Wii so thought sod it and jumped in.

    Well worth it IMO!

    Think I'll stick with Configurable Loader for now then.

    There might be some stuff left over from the last softmod, i cleaned the SD card and put the new stuff on it but theres possibly stuff left over, any ideas?

    The version thats in the file pack,yes mate, tried a guitar one but every other one in pack freezes very quickly.

    Is it possibly some of the config stuff in the loader itself?

    I also have a elements 500GB-With 100+ games on CFG FATv52
    WBFS - games
    MOVIES - divx

    I take it your using a mac (Never Used One)
    so do the game managers on here work or do you have to find simular apps?
    I take it you meant FAT32 and not FAT
    No Hidden partitions & Active

    What game manager you using?
    Regards

    Sorry mate, version 51 of Configurable USB loader.

    No mate, im not using anything different, only i have to use WBFS manager to put my Isos onto drive as thats the only compatible mac drive manager i could find.

    Everything else works just fine.

    Games wise if they load at all, im lucky to get five mins out of a game, cant do one song on rockband, cant finish second level of Mario etc.

    Im back to playing my original disks, just thought USB loader seemed so much more convenient, also saved me scratching the disks as well!!!

    Any ideas?

    Thanks again mate

    What happens if you try and rip an original to the HDD? does that play OK?

    There all originals that im putting on, just dont want to scratch them.

    I work away from home a lot so its much handier (and tidier) to take a HDD rather than games in boxes.
