@SteveT "Naka-" is used when [something] is equipped on your body or it is what you are using at the moment.
e.g.
"Naka-WiFi ka? Mobile data lang kasi gamit ko"
translates to "Oh you're using WiFi? Well I only use mobile data"
 
"Nakaka-" means something that makes you [that].
e.g.
"Nakakabaliw ka. Kanina ka pa ah."
translates to "You're making me crazy. You've been like this since ago."
