    Is burning DVD's necessary?

    Ok so I have USB Loader GX on my Wii and a hard drive formatted to work with it. I've been able to put in a few games and back them up and then play them off of the hard drive. That seems to work fine(except for Madden 07...).

    But now lets say I want to download a game and play it. I know I need to download an ISO, but what then? Do I have to burn it to a DVD, put that in my Wii, then back it up with USB Loader GX to get it on the Hard Drive? Or can I just connect my hard drive to my computer and put the ISO directly onto that?

    If someone could tell me the directions for downloading an ISO and getting it to work on my wii that would be great. Sorry if this is kind of a noob question, but all the tutorials I've found only tell me how to get homebrew and usb loader on my wii, which I've already done.

    You need to get WBFS manager to transfer isos from your PC to the HD, no need to burn to DVDs and rip from there.

    As kon said, every decent WBFS manager should be able to put it directly onto the harddrive.

    Ah, thats good, as I already have WBFS Manager on my windows laptop. If you can just rip it directly onto the hard drive, then why would anyone use DVD's? I mean there is a whole subforum dedicated to it here, but it sounds like just using a hard drive would be easier.

    Also side-question, are there any good WBFS manager programs for mac? My windows laptop doesn't have much hard drive space left and isos are pretty big so I'd rather get it on my iMac. If there are any good free ones can you please post me a link? It would be much appreciated.

    Although I agree with you.... please remember that it was not to long ago that this was the only way to utilize the backed up games, and its still the easiest for 80% people who just want to play a game without paying for it. And of course... although minimal.... USB drives do cost money.
