What format is your HDD? The games probably went corrupt if you are using the old format wbfs. I suggest formatting your HDD in FAT32 format.
This tool should be pretty useful once you format to FAT32.
hello I have recently performed the soft mod hack per this sites guide. I have backed up all my games to an external HD. They play fine for awhile but seem to randomly go corrupt and need to be reloaded? anyone having a similar problem? Any fix?
This happens to me sometimes. And I'm using fat32. Try and always use the safely remove hardware icon to remove your hdd from your pc. Also I wait till the wii is shutdown completely before removing it from the wii also. I know there is something to that, because one of my kids unplugged the drive from the wii while it was doing something and the whole drive was corrupt.

Hi my Hd is a fat32 formate and I tell my kids to exit the game back to the wii menu before turning the power off......not to say they always listen or follow those instructions...lol. I do fully power down my wii before disconnecting. I suspect the problem is not in the removal but just software interface because there have been multiple times when the hd was never even been disconnected between sessions and a game will just stop working? I was just curious if others had seen the same glitch? And based on your reply I think it's a yes
O well maybe one of the software gods will read this a look for a fix lol
Has happened to me a few times
Why I dont know since i have always been very careful as well
Seems it has happened the most with the ones I play a lot
