    is it posible to upload games to wii using wifi

    rather than having to bring my hard drive to my pc every time i want to add a new game can it be done using wifi connection via gc linux or something and have them dump onto my external hard drive?

    I think he may be referring to pushing ISO files over wifi to the USB HDD on the Wii. Copying the disc to the HDD is easy in the Wii. Unplugging the USB to put into your PC so you can drop the ISO over is rather annoying, I agree.

    The only way I've been able to backup my way too expensive original Wii games iso files is to send the via WiFi to my external drive on my PC. I use Wii DVD Dumper developed by Waninkoko. It works perfectly, I only wish that I could send via USB-to-LAN cable rather than by WiFi.

    Question

    Let's avoid hijacking Brad's thread. I've given a couple of idea solutions in another thread that I believe you posted today. Check those out.

    Brad, if I'm following your situation... You actually want to play your games from the hard drive rather than from disks but you want to do it via a hard drive connected to a computer in another room?

    Playing the iso(game) off of the PC via the network would be the way to go.
    But it has not been done yet.

    It can possibly be done I'm sure.
    At one time the craze of playing doom on a house full of PCs via network was fun. And thats when the networks best setup was Ethernet.

    Now the network protocols are ready for the PC server to Wii.
    Someday soon I hope.

    In stead of a usbloader there will be a netloader.(Who knows).
