    USB Loader Possibility?

    So I was wondering if in order to load things from a USB Loader program if you have to have just a plain old USB Hard Drive. Can you just hook your PC up to the computer and set your hard drive(s) up a certain way to load games and other homebrew that way, or do the loaders only support a single usb hard drvie hooked directly to the Wii?

    Hook the computer up to the computer. From the context I think you mean could the Wii be connected directly to the PC. In which case no. Windows, nor Wii, would have any clue wtf was going on. You need to have a hard drive plugged directly into the Wii via USB.

    hook the HD up to your PC and copy them with WBFS Manager. It'll be the fastest method.

    I think you have got yourself a little confused.

    If you have installed a game ISO to your portable usb hard drive using wbfs manager then you have no need to 'install' in the USB Loader. You simply click on the game you want in the listing and it'll load the game as if you'd put the disc in.

    The only need for installing a game would be to load a game you already have a disc for.
