ok, i guess i wasn't missing anything and my hard drive was acting up. It now runs fine. Another questions however. I have some iso of my games that I ripped and i tried putting those on the hd but wiiflow didn't see them. I popped one of the games in and rippped the game but the wbfs that came out was like 300mb vs the 4 gb of iso. Is that normal? Also i found a wiiflow manager that can do the conversion but was hoping to keep my backups in iso format so that I could burn them in the future if needed. Any ideas? Thanks!
