Okay, I have some noob questions:
-Is there a way to run backups off your HDD without reformatting it?
-Do these instructions work for Neogamma R8?

NeoGamma R8 will read off HDD. The USB Loaders do a better job is one installs more a just a few games on the HDD because of the different game listing styles available with USB Loaders.

This guide addresses the use of WBFS Manager necessitating a WBFS-formatted drive or partition.

I just downloaded the archive and installed USB Loader GX to r899. I did succeed o load a game so it's all working but how do I unlock it?? I keep getting a message saying "Unlock console to use this option".
I searched the web like crazy and everyones saying the same thing. click the "unlock" button and enter ab121b, but the problem is... there is no unlock button! and the menu looks a little bit different from the screenshots/youtube movies too.
What am I missing??

I cannot get my HDD to configure correctly...I have followed the steps for doing this on the first page but nothing worked and I had to actually return the first HDD because it stopped working completely...I now have a new 250GB Verbatim HDD and do not know what to do...I am thinking it didn't work cuz first page tut is for WBFS 3.0 and I have 2.5...not sure...please someone help me or walk me through how to do this correctly so I can hook it up to my Wii and start using it...thank you in advance

help loading ISO files from HDD
Hi I've formatted my Wii HDD and I've even been able to play Call of Duty III from a torrent iso I downloaded but its the only one i've been able to get running all the other iso files that i downloaded either have a running screen or are in black and white. I don't know if I'm just downloading junk torrents or if I'm doing something wrong with the other iso files that I did correctly with the first iso file i am able to play (Call of Duty III). Does anyone have any suggestions? or perhaps a link to a iso file they know should work properly to see if the other iso files I downloaded are junk. Do I have to download a certain kind of iso file or certain size? Thanks for your guys help in advance and for the tutorial, i'm sorta a noobie but i'm learning a lot.
ps i'm using WBFS manager 3.0 and NeoGamma
