    Question USB Harddrive loader?

    A couple of questions, I've been reading about this hard drive loader thing and am a little confused, I'm running the twilight hack on a V3.3 wii do I need to install new software to get the usb loader to work. Do I have to load the games thru the wii ( I have an external drive with around 50 game iso's on it already) or can I just plug in the ex drive and select the game to load? Thanks in advance for the reply.

    USB loaders are just an application you run through the Homebrew Channel or as a distinct channel themselves. They require a custom IOS installed on your Wii to operate.

    Simply having isos on your hard disk will now work, they need to be loaded using WBFS manager.

    Twilight hack (normally) is a run once hack that allows you to install the Homebrew Channel. So you are not running it.

    You'll find plenty of info in the tutorials section and there also is a whole forum near enough dedicated 'Software Backup Loaders'

    Enjoy your learning journey.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
