Another question re cloning a hd. I am transferring 26 games from my segate 1.5TB hd to a segate 500 gb HD. So far, only 1 game has transferred after about 3 hours. Is this nornal? How long does it take? There is about 35 GB of space to transfer. Please advise.
Not for one game it isn't.
I would like to add that some members have reported problems using the hdd clone function. If I were transfering games from one hdd to another hdd, I would do it one game at a time, kind of time consuming but may guarantee all the games work properly on the new hdd.
THANK YOU! I just got a 1TB HDD, so it should hold more than enough games! No more ordering Verbatim DVD-R's! Not to mention I got my Wii at launch, so not putting any more wear and tear on the laser makes me feel so much better.
Did I mention this is the lasiest/most awesome way to do it?
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
WBFS Manager has a 500 file limit to its file managerial abilities. That means even if there is more room on the HDD, WBFS Manager will only allow 500 games-that 1TB HD will be just fine for that. With compatible Western Digital HDDs one can ususally copy a group of 20-30 games at a time. The problem may be in that 500GB Seagate. The 1 and 1.5TB Seagate external USB HDDs appear to be more reliably compatible for the Wii and WBFS Manager.

how do you put a wbfs.file back on the hard drive when it's not an iso file?
My first post ;)
I'm new to the Wii so you have to bear with me on this one. I already have a hacked Wii (WiiFlow installed by someone else). Now I want to use my spare HDD to load games. Based on the info that I read from this thread here is what I understand:
1. Download and Install WBFS Manager on my laptop (Win XP SP3). I downloaded the 3.0 x64 version since there is no 32-bit option. Towards the bottom of the WBFS Manager page it did say that this works with XP. Net Framework will also be downloaded and installed as said the the WBFS page.
2. Once the WBFS Manager is installed, connect the HDD and then format using WBFS Manager. Once formatted in WBFS, I launch the WBFS Manager to move games from my PC to the HDD.
3. Connect the HDD to the Wii and run WiiFlow. This should launch all the games in the HDD. Just pick and then play.
Did I miss anything?
