    Yes, why wouldn't you be able to? Just make sure it's FAT32 with 32kb cluster size.

    IDK just making sure. Homebrew stuff can be picky. Also is there a program like WBFS Manager that i can use to copy them to my HD or can I use that?

    To copy Wii games to FAT32 use Wii Backup Manager.

    Use DMToolbox v0.1a to convert or install your GC games to a SD/USB device
    GC games in "games"folder in USB FAT32 HDD ( USB1/games/GAMEID/game.iso)

    Ok its telling me i need to format it. Does that mean mean my cluster or files system isnt set on the correct setting. Sorry, I haven't been messing with my Wii in a while.

    Also this hd has wii games on it too which is why I was wondering if I can use the same hd. I can't open it because its telling me I need to format it.

    DMToolbox can install games in three different formats:
    *RAW : 1:1 copy of the selected ISO
    *Optimised: this removes all the unused space from the ISO,
    but keeps the previous alignment of the files
    *Extracted: this extracts all the files

    I usually choose format: RAW and Align: 32k
    you pick the GC ISO: and the Output dir:
    then click install

    You could install the game to your computer folder, SD folder or HDD "games" folder
    It does not format your HDD.
    Read the guide-dios-mios first.

    Try wbfs2fat if you have a WBFS HDD to convert it to FAT32 HDD
    it does not delete the WII games you will not lose any games,all your Wii games will be in a wbfs folder on your FAT32 HDD, I use it and I did not lose any games and the wii games and HB stuff all work perfect after
    wbfs2fatpy
    wbfs2fat

    for dios mios you need FAT32 HDD with 32KB cluster size so after you convert it to FAT32 check the cluster size, if it is 64KB use Acronis Disk Director 11 Advanced to change the cluster from 64KB to 32KB cluster it is very quick, you could also use MiniTool Partition Wizard Professional Edition to change the cluster size, I did not lose any data and it is very fast also and the games work perfect after

    Wii games and GC games works perfect with FAT32 HDD

    It's late here, see you tomorrow, SNES_Master could help you if you have any more questions.

    ok thank you so much! I will try tomorrow. if I run into bigger problem I will just post in the help section.

    EDIT

    Well I have everything set up. My wii games dont show up in wiiflow anymore and I dont see my GC games in Wiiflow or USB loader GX. It works on DIOS MIOS. How can I get Wii flow to show my Wii games and GC. I get an error "WBFS_OPEN:-01"
