    Compress size of the games

    Every games is always over 4.38 GB or something like that.

    There is no way that every game is always this big. Some can be 2GB or some 3GB, am I right?

    Is there a solution for that to play games that are "cleaned" to the correct size?
    So i can put more games on a HDD.

    Some games for the Wii can be 2 or 3 gigs, but that doesn't mean all games will.

    The higher the quality of the graphics in the game will raise the size, cut scenes will also take a bit of space, so will a longer story line.

    Maybe you could remove old games you no longer play off of your HDD to free up space for newer games?

    You can use WBFS with a WBFS Manager of some kind, if you're using a USB launcher for your games. Otherwise, you can use the Trim functionality of WiiScrubber. Both of these things can be found via a little bit of Google searching. If you're having trouble finding them, post again here and I'll see what kind of sleuthing I can do.

    I have now used WBFS Manager. I have formatted my USB stick with WBFS. Added Need for speed the run (about 1GB). When connecting USB stick to Wii nothing happens.

    What did I wrong?

    Just rip the game with the original disc with your Wii. Or if u store your backups on your pc, use Wii backup manager.

    And u do know you have to use a usb loader to play the game, right? Just sticking the drive into the Wii won't do anything. Lol.

    You know what it should work. But i have found Wii backup manager to work better.

    Make sure your drive is primary and set to active. Try using easus partition master to format your drive.

    I use fat32 formatted drive. But wbfs should work too.

    First make sure you are plugging the usb into port 0. The port closer to the bottom or edge of the Wii.
