    USB HD File Management via WiFi / PC

    I have a USB Drive with two partitions on it. WBFS and FAT32

    Is there a way or utility that would allow me to access the USB Drive hooked up to my Wii from my PC? It would be nice to be able to manage files on either partition from my PC over the WiFi connection... ie.. copy xvid movies from my PC to the Wii's HD via the WiFi? The same with games... Using an app like WBFS Manager to handle games over the WiFi as well?

    I 'm using the Windows SMB for all of my emulator packages. Where I have all of the roms stored on my PC. And the emulator packages access the roms via SMB from one of my PC's. That in its self is pretty sweet... where I can manage the games utilized by the emulators from windows. But to try something like that with a xvid or a wii game would be extremely slow... (I 'm guessing). Thats why just being able to manage the files (copy or delete) files to the USB Drive hooked directly to the Wii would be preferable.

    Any ideas?

    ftpii has no USB support.

    You would think that would be a natural addition... but no cigar

    Sweet... I never paid attention to using the wiimote arrow buttons to mount different devices.

    Thanks !

    Now... have you got a ftp client that will see a WBFS drive or partition?

    Nah the address he posted will only show the FAT partition of the HDD. Unfortunately nothing yet to browse the WBFS portion.

    These problem is in my attention also ... I think the WBFS manager from PC need improvement with lan support and also FTPii need a usb support ... Would be nice to copy and delete the files without connect and disconnect the whole usb drive... I looking in the near future after a realiable solution. Thx
