    What size and type of drive are you using?

    I've tried this with 5 different games, USB Loader, cfg loader, wiiflow, and it still won't work
    I am having the same issue and have been searching for a couple of weeks for a solution, still coming up empty. Had very little issues with WBFS but would really like to use Fat32. Anybody have some ideas on this issue?

    You could try using CleanRip to dump the games, then use your favorite game manager to compress the resulting file.

    Hi- I am new to this whole thing, I just recently purchased a Wii. I've followed the softmod guide, and completed that successfully. Now I am trying to figure out this part.

    Regarding formatting the hard drive, I thought that formatting erases everything. But looking though this thread a little, I saw some mention their hard drives keeping the data that's already on it? I have a 500 GB hard drive, but the thing is that I have a bunch of files, software, and other things on there that I need. Wouldn't following this guide erase everything? Or is there a way to use some of it for the Wii, while keeping the rest for what is already on there? Would I have to create a separate partition for that? (I'm not really sure how I would even go about doing that.)

    Also, the second thing I was wondering was, is it possible to run games off of an SD card? I've looked it up, but have found different answers. I'd like to try copying one of my games and then playing it with just the SD card, instead of having to put the disk in. Would I just put the file on the SD card? Do I need any other programs, other than what was installed via the softmod guide? And how do I go about running the game?

    Sorry for the newbie questions.

    Formatting will delete hard drive contents. There are some programs that will change the cluster size without deleting data, but a format will.

    So if there is anything you want saved on it, you'll want to back it up first, then restore it when done.

    It makes things easier in the long run to keep it all to one partition. Once you do that, you can create an extra directory in the root of the hard drive and keep all your other stuff in it, it won't affect anything else that the Wii does with the hard drive.

    Some Wii homebrew apps can load a game off of SD, but due to capacity and speed issues of cards, I usually don't recommend people mess with that and just get a hard drive that is lying around, or fine one on the cheap to use.

    I'm not even sure if I have enough space on my computer to back up my hard drive, and I don't want to buy another drive just for this right now, as I still have space on my current one. Sounds like it would be easier though, maybe I'll look on eBay.

    If your drive is already Fat32 (or NTFS if you follow the other guide) format, is formatting still necessary? Can you just move everything already existing on the hard drive into a different directory and go on to the next step?

    Also, I didn't see any step talking about putting Wiiflow or the other programs on the external drive. Does this mean that while the drive is connected, you still need to have the SD card with the apps inserted the Wii?

    Do you have any Homebrew app to recommend for trying to load a file off the SD card? I might want to try it just for curiosity's sake.

    Thank you for your response.

    Yes you can just make sure it is easily identified so you dont accidentially erase it.

    Mac user: Had problems with Wii Back-up fusion

    Just a heads up to the forum starter Pob. I'm not sure I would recommend Wii Back UP fusion for mac users. I have a mac and recently hacked my wii. I had major problems trying to get the Metroid Prime trilogy game on my wii (USB loader would recognize game but went to black when I tried to play). I did a ton of snooping around the internet forums and found a random post that mentioned Wii Back up fusion may mess something up when "splitting" a larger then 4gb game file.

    I then downloaded Witgui for mac and have been using it ever since. I would personally recommend witgui (even tho it can be buggy at times). My 2 cents as a mac user...

    thank you for the guide, everything works amazingly well
    just one observation: for some reason, the wii backup manager works better to me, it recognizes games that the others just can't
