    Us Ripping to HDD

    Ok I'm a noob and have successfully modded my 4.1 Wii. I recently have added a 500gb HDD with Wii Flow. I have backed up my original games on my USB HDD without any problems. My question comes to the games I have burned to DVD that I was originally playing on my modded Wii. Can I use the copied games on DVD and backup to my HDD using Wii Flow? Also I still have the .iso files on my PC as well as Scrubbed files. Can they be added to my HDD and if so, how?

    Im in the process of changing from using wbfs formatted drive to a fat32 formatted drive i just need a few pointers not covered in the guide....

    iv got all my games off the wbfs drive using Wiibackup manager (i got them stored on my pc and converted to .wbfs unitl my drive is formatted to fat32)

    im using wiiflow 2.2 (using 249 v20 base57) its currently on my sd card as with all my covers and other apps for homebrew, when i get my fat32 drive and all my games on it can i just copy the contents of my sd card to the fat32 drive GO? Or do i need to change some settings in wiiflow/homebrew channel to get it to read from the fat32 usb drive? as i want to be able to not have an SD card installed and still use wiiflow

    also i have a wiiflow channel installed on my system menu will i need to remove it and reinstall?

    Yes, you can just pop them in and use wiiflow to rip them, but it would be quicker to use wii backup manager in the OP to transfer them over using your ISO's.

    I believe you can transfer the folders to your HDD if you keep the file structure the same as your SD. Your forwarder should work with the USB drive but it does look at the SD first, so you may want to remove wiiflow from the SD or just remove the card.

    Hey,
    I don't know if the guide is still being updated but there's no guide to format an external hard drive under Linux. So you can use mine if you want.

    1. Install gparted, there are two ways to do this:

    • Use a package manager like Synaptic or the Ubuntu Software Centre
    • Use the terminal and type "sudo apt-get install gparted"

    2. Launch it

    • System -> Administration in Gnome

    3. Change the loaded drive, there's a menu with /dev/sda selected, your external hard drive is probably /dev/sdb

    4. Create a new partition table (everything gets erased there)

    • Device -> Create Partition Table
    • Click Apply

    5. Create a new FAT32 partition

    • Partition -> New
    • Select fat32
    • Click Apply



    OR...

    1. Do it in the terminal

    • mkdosfs -F 32
    • If that doesn't work, install dosfstools ("sudo apt-get install dosfstools")

    To my knowledge apt-get only works on Debian based distros so some reading and trying your advice will be out of luck. You shouldn't guess at where peoples drive will mount because mine definitely isn't /dev/sdb. Also if you are going to tell people to use the mkdosfs command you should probably give a proper example because what you listed is no good without a target device...It's only half of a command.

    Proper use:

    mkdosfs [options] device

    Example: mkdosfs -F 32 /dev/sda

    Hi I just have one question. When you install games to the FAT32 hdd through configurable USB loader like brawl, does it automatically split it or do I need to put games over 4gb on to my hdd from my computer?

    It splits automatically.

    transfer using wii backup manager unseccessful

    Okay, so here is everything I have done using this guide.

    FAT32 Hard Drives - Formatting, Loading, Rippng, Playing Guide

    1.Your Wii MUST Be successfully Soft-modded. Hopefully using one of our
    recommended softmod Guides.
    * The 4.3 Softmod Guide - By Mauifrog - check

    2. Before you buy an External USB Hard Drive be sure to check the Compatibility Lists.
    GBA Temp Wiki List's this drive as compatible:
    - Western Digital WD Elements USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive WDBAAU0020HBK-NESN 2TB

    My HD is a new:
    Western Digital WD Elements USB 2.0 External Hard Drive P/N WDBAAU0020HBK-01, Model WDBAAU0020HBK-NETG


    Is this a close enough match?

    [Setup]
    New USB Hard Drive -- Ready to Format! - check

    [Formatting]
    Formatting - Main Option - check

    [Installing a Backup Loader]

    Option 1 - Forwarder Channels & HBC Loading - *RECOMMENDED*

    Configurable USB Loader v60

    1. Install One of the Forwarder Channels With Wad Manager. Extract One of the RAR's

    1. CFG Loader Forwarder -DFCL |
    2. CFG Loader Forwarder Black Edition -DFCL
    - check(I successfully installed this wad on my wii)

    * cIOS222/223 Users -- Download This -- Extract the RAR File directly to USB:/
    * cIOSx 249 Rev19/20 Users -- Download This -- Extract the RAR File directly to USB:/check (successfully extracted to root of my W:\ drive)

    WiiFlow 2.1a2 - I skipped this one
    1. Install One of the Forwarder Channels With Wad Manager. Extract One of the RAR's
    1. Wiiflow Forwarder -DFWF |2. WiiFlow Forwarder Black Edition-DFWF |
    * cIOS222/223 Users -- Download THIS -- Extract the RAR File directly to USB:/
    * cIOSx 249 Rev19/20 Users -- Download THIS -- Extract the RAR File directly to USB:/

    Try Both USB loaders - I skipped this one
    Hermes cIOS222/223 Users - Download 222 Pack and Extract Directly to USB:/
    Waninkoko cIOSx Rev 19/20 Users - Download 249 Pack and Extract Directly to USB:/

    Try out all the loaders. Delete the ones you don't want. Install a Forwarder if you want to load from the Wii Menu.

    OK I was totally lost in this section, had no clue what to choose. So I took a wild guess and chose the packages highlighted in red above.

    I completely skipped "WiiFlow 2.1a2", and "Try Both USB loaders" because I didn't understand what each was for or which to choose. Plus, it says "Install ONE of the forwarder Channels with wad manager. Extract ONE of the RAR's"

    Did I mess up in this section? I wanted to do this as simply as possible. I didn't need more than one way to skin a cat. All I wanted was just one working method to get me to the next section.


    [Ripping/Installing to your USB HDD]

    Option 4 - Simple step-by-step Instructions for Wii Backup Manager
    Transfer a File

    1. Connect the USB Device to your PC - Open Wii Backup Manager - check
    2. Click "Drive 1" - Click "Drive" and select your USB HDD Drive Letter - Your Drive Loads - check
    3. Click "Files" - Click "Add", you will get two choices - "Files" & "Folders" - Click "Files" - check
    4. Browse for the File you want to add and select it - check
    5. Your File is now loaded in WiiBackupManager - Check the Box Beside the file and click "Transfer" - check
    6. Choose "Drive 1" - check
    - Wait - Done - Nope Didn't Transfer

    A half a second after I hit the transfer>drive 1 button, it said complete, but there is nothing at all in my w:\wbfs. The Backup Manager Log reads as follows:
    Attachment 3690

    Okay so can anyone tell me what I missed or where I went wrong? Any input will be much appreciated. Thank You!

    Was it a bad rip? When I converted over from WBFS to Fat32 I had to transfer all my games back over. My Super Smash bros would not transfer. Kept getting error. Even though I had it on my old drive for the longest time. I re-ripped it and it transferred fine.
