    YEP!
    figured maybe rreceiving ..."+Error Custom IOS 222 could not be loaded! (-4 100)means that Hermes IOS 222/223 needs to be reinstalled
    however this message IOs version 00F9000E prevents that from happening. Firmware is 4.2..Should user agreement be accepted so that WIIConnect24 can be turned off..not to sure if Nintendo can tap into system if it is.

    Try using AnyTitleDeleter and delete IOS222 and IOS223. Then try reinstalling Hermes. No Nintendo isn't taping into your system and preventing you from doing it.

    make sure you have WiFi connected.

    If that still doesn't work then go HERE and follow that guide.

    Next time someone has issues with part of the softmod (like hermes) please ask it in the softmod guide not in the USB loader guide.

    IOS222 and IOS223 are not even a choice within AnyTitleDeleter for some reason. What I was trying to say is that;
    a) If WIIConnect24 is always on can Nintendo tap in and look into softmods off of hardrive, not if they are preventing the install.
    b) The original problem came from USB Loader, I just thought maybe
    reinstalling Hermes will help and found an issue there. I will howver move my question to the right thread...Thanks!

    Quick question. I have a 250 Gb Fat32 HD with backup photos, music on it.
    Do I have to format this? Or can I just create the necessary folders on root?

    if you HDD is already formated as a FAT32 you can try it before formatting it. You can also try creating a folder for all those backups.

    ok thanks, I'll give it a go.
    One more question, if you use usb loader to rip the game from the wii to your usb HD for backup purposes, isnt it possible it wont fit due to the fat32 format (max file size of 4Gigs)?

    As long as the file system is FAT32 it should work.

    As for file size limits read past post for your answer. I have already answered this question numerous times.

    So what are the pros of having an FAT32 file system or NTSF file system as opposed to the WSMB file system. I saw that you could add covers for the games on the FAT32 and you couldn't copy orginal games to the NTSF.

    Worked like a charm, and it also solved all my problems/questions from other post.

    Sad that it took me 4/5 hours to figure out that the wii's cd drive had a diff chipset that will not allow playing of burnt games. :-(

    @milkchoca

    Can you please edit your above post and take out the quote section of the hole guide. That isn't necessary to do and all it is doing is wasting space in the forum.
