    Backup

    Hey guys i got a problem using my new wii.
    i got it yesterday and i used the softmod tutorial to get homebrew and preloader on the wii. now i wanna dump my games to the hdd and play them from the hdd. i got a wd my book 500g hdd where 30gb are fat32 and the rest is ntfs. i tried dvd dumper but the wii crashed whenever i tried this. i tried superdump but the iso i received was not transferred by wbfs manager to the hdd cuz it said is was 0.01gb. the game is used was mario kart wii.
    ok now i really wanna know how i can do this, it shouldnt be that diffucult as a lot of people have no poblems with this at all.
    thank u all for ur help in forward.

    you need to use WBFS manager to format your drive as WBFS not NTFS.

    also, use usb loader GX or CFG usb loader to rip the games to your HDD.

    there is no need for superdump, your making things more complicated than they need to be!

    Run your usb loader (GX or CFG for instance) and use that to dump the game, this wil dump it straight onto your WBFS partition.

    Also make sure your WBFS partition is set as primary and active.

    You don't leave it RAW-as davepm said-you need to format that partition with WBFS Manager:
    1. Plug your new USB HDD into PC
    2. Right click on My Computer
    3. Go to Manage
    4.Click on Disk Management
    5.With your disk drive loaded and visible: right click on new HDD and choose delete volume (or partition-the one you want Wii to use)
    6. Right click on new HDD in lower part or graphical portion of window and click New

    7. a)Choose to assign a letter to your new drive
    b)choose NOT TO FORMAT when you create your new partition [note that you can choose size of partition-you can leave some for FAT32 or NTFS in a later step]
    c) make your new partition primary and active
    8.Run WBFS Manager 3.X
    9. Select your new drive letter and click Format.

    Now to the Wii: plug your WD HDD into the lower or left USB port depending on Wii position. Boot up Wii, from sysmenu activate USB Loader GX. To rip game disc from Wii, push (+) button and insert game disc into Wii drive.

    [You can either use WBFS Manager or go back to your PC to format the non-WBFS partition if you chose to create one-your choice on format. However, just remember than FAT32 cannot handle files >4GB, NTFS is required for that and ISOs and movies are often larger than 4GB]. To transfer ISO's from PC to WBFS-formatted drive use WBFS Manager. Load your Wii drive (select drive letter from WBFS list). Right hand window-browse, locate ISO and select ISO. When it appears in right hand window-select the game title, click add.

    Are you saying that USB Loader GX is asking you for a password? That isn't right. You followed the softmod tutorial named softmod any wii 3.1-4.1 from this site, right?
