    Your better off using usbloader GX and any game from the internet in iso format.

    what you will need is:

    Cios rev14
    usbloader gx
    WBFS manager
    memory card for the wii
    usb hard drive (western digital passport drive is the best)

    there are loads of tutorials on youtube on how to set all this up and google is your friend for all of the above. but if you get stuck pm me.

    do you know if a buffalo 1tb will work well for this if not i can use this one for something else and get a seagate. also do you think using a tb is overkill for the wii

    if you can make a tutorial for that, it would be awesome for noobs like me..
    i followed softmod instructions for 3.4-4.1 tutorial (mine was 3.4 which I upgraded to 4.1 as from tutorial) posted in this forum and have all required steps done.. now how do i backup my games and run them..

    <o:smarttagtype namespaceuri="urn:schemas-microsoft-com<img src=" http:="" www.wiihacks.com="" images="" smilies="" redface.gif="" border="0" alt="" title="Embarrassment" smilieid="2" class="inlineimg"></o:smarttagtype>Your HDD will probably come already formatted for "plug and play" compatibility with a PC. Instructions for WinXP (find the equivalent for <st1>Vista</st1> or Win7):

    1. Plug your new USB HDD into PC
    2. Right click on My Computer
    3. Go to Manage
    4.Click on Disk Management
    5.With your disk drive loaded and visible: right click on new HDD and choose delete volume (or partition-the one you want Wii to use)
    6. Right click on new HDD in lower part or graphical portion of window and click New

    7. a)Choose to assign a letter to your new drive
    b)choose NOT TO FORMAT when you create your new partition [note that you can choose size of partition-you can leave some for FAT32 or NTFS in a later step]
    c) make your new partition primary and active
    8.Run WBFS Manager 3.X
    9. Select your new drive letter and click Format.

    Now to the Wii: plug your WD HDD into the lower or left USB port depending on Wii position. Boot up Wii, from sysmenu activate USB Loader GX. To rip game disc from Wii, push (+) button and insert game disc into Wii drive.

    [You can either use WBFS Manager or go back to your PC to format the non-WBFS partition if you chose to create one-your choice on format. However, just remember than FAT32 cannot handle files >4GB, NTFS is required for that and ISOs and movies are often larger than 4GB]. To transfer ISO's from PC to WBFS-formatted drive use WBFS Manager. Load your Wii drive (select drive letter from WBFS list). Right hand window-browse, locate ISO and select ISO. When it appears in right hand window-select the game title, click add. See graphic:

    Thanks gen3sf. So we don't need to install any other IOS or wad to do this ? The softmod instructions posted are enough to copy/play games from USB drive ?

    Yes, after you completed the 3.1-4.1 softmod, then downloaded USB Loader GX and WBFS Manager from the OPTIONAL section of the softmod tutorial, you were all set-just needed to setup the HDD and learn a bit about WBFS Manager which I have now done. Have fun.

    actually I just found out that I don't need USB Loader GX either since Newgamma can read from USB. So all I had to do was use WBFS manager to create the USB volume.

    I also used to use Neogamma for usb loading as I was having problems with GX and covers.
    I have now switched to configurable usb loader and my opinion it is the best usb loader by far. It does everything you need, ocarina codes, 002 error fixing, dol loading you can even add themes and your own music.
    Try it.

    While NeoGamma can load your games from the USB HDD, take a look sometime at USB Loader GX, configurable USB Loader, or uLoader. The reason to at least look at a USB loader is the use of the games listing. NeoGamma lists and will scroll the games list somewhat awkwardly.

    When one is using a large HDD with 10s and 100s of games, the ability to scroll through the list of games by screen, by grabbing the scrollbar, etc. saves time. For now, if you only have a few dozen or so games on your HDD, NeoGamma will be fine. Take your time and explore the menu interfaces of the various USB loaders-they are significantly better when one has hundreds of games on the WBFS partition.
