    When I try to copy or transfer the file on to this partition (same problem with FAT partition on USB flash drive) I get this error:

    unexpected error issue: Error 0

    Other files transfer on to this partition just fine.. Other ISOs of a similar nature also get the the same error when I try to transfer. I have tried changing the file name to more basic characters.

    what am i missing??
    You will find that Fat32 will only except files of 4gb or smaller. What program are you using to transfer the files?
    If you are using Fat32 you should have a directory on the root of the usb hdd called 'wbfs' ie USB://WBFS.
    You can use a program called wii backup fusion to transfer your iso' into the wbfs folder in a wbfs format. There is an option in the settings to set the split of the file if it is over 4 gb.

    Wii Backup Fusion is available to download in my sig or look a couple of posts up and you will see I have posted it to.

    So you have the first problem sorted yes?

    What game are you trying to load? Some games need a little tweeking of the the setting/s to get them running....

    just wondering if there was a way to get a game that is already a .wfbs file onto the harddrive from my mac? I (bleep) a game that was already converted and can't seem to get WBFS for MacOS X to recognize it.

    It is possible. When I (bleep) a .wbfs torrent I receive a folder and inside the folder normally a .txt and the .wbfs. Now the file is normally named for example Mario Cart Wii. What you will need to add are the letters that are attached to the .wbfs inside the folder. Example.

    Folder- Mario Cart Wii
    wbfs - RMCE01.wbfs
    Replace folder name to - RMCE01_Mario Kart Wii

    Thats what works for me at least. Im sure there might be a different way but so far so good. Im not so sure I explained it well so if you have any question PM me personally and ill walk you through it.

    Good Luck,
    Jeff

    Having a few problems

    So I followed your instructions, I have got a few games on my FAT - WBFS external hard drive.
    I used USB loader and everything worked fine for a while, but if I tried to quit the game the screen would go black and would freeze I'm guessing, also for example I was playing the first star level for Supermariogalaxy 2 and after I got the star and I'm guessing the it was trying to save or load, the same thing happened, the screen went black and didn't respond.

    As a side question, am I supposed to put the folder wbsf folder that was included in the download on the SD card? or is that folder for the workings of the actual WBSF_Os x device?

    One more question, when I'm playing these games from my hard drive, I don't need any disc inside my wii correct? and lastly when playing from an external hard drive how do things, ie progress in a game get saved??

    Thanks for any help on these questions, I really really appreciate it!

    I would just use a fat32 formatted HDD and use wiibackup fusion - Look in my sig.... WBFS formatted hdd is out dated.

    The game save progress is saved to the wii's nand not on hdd or sd....
