    Playing my wii games on an internal hard drive?

    Thank you guys for wii softmodding tutorials. I finally hacked my wii yesterday. I hav the homebrew channel, usb loadergx, and the full package installations. Now myother question. I have a small usb flash drive which i converted to wbfs to play my wii games on usb loader gx. It works. play mario party 9, tatusnoko vs capcom, and new super mario bros 2. They all work. But I was wondering if I could use my internal(not external) hard drive to play my wii games on it. I already have an enclosure to put the drive in with a usb, and my hard drive is found on the compatible list(Thank goodness) and works for usb loader, but how do I use it has a usb drive period. I read that you have to format the drive, but this is the ONLY drive I have for my PC. I was wondering how could I play games off it. Do I make a folder on the desktop and put the isos I converted with wii manager in it. I tried using my internal hard drive on usb configure. It finds the hard drive partition 1 and 2, but finds no games. So any clarification would be great!

    Partition with games must be primary and active. Use game manager to add them to it and it will make necessary folders. I convert my games to. Wbfs and copy them over to external drive that is ntfs

    I did that but it ended finding still no games. And also I convert from wbfs to iso and no folders are created, just the iso..

    Do you mean convert them from iso to wbfs and also I am not using an external drive, I am using an internal hard drive, the very drive where I have all my confidential information and only one

    The best way to do that would be to:
    1. Put the drive in a compatible enclosure.
    2. Plug in via USB into port 0 of your Wii.
    3. Open your loader.
    4. Insert original Wii game disc into the disc drive.
    5. Rip the disc to the drive via loader.

    I dont have original wii games. I just have the isos I downloaded off the internet. Example: Super mario galaxy which I converted from wbfs to iso. SO that doesn't answer my question.
