    Yes you need a program for this.

    download wbfs downloader 3.0 from here: WBFS Manager

    Once you install it open it and load both your hdd. Then just select "clone".

    Your good to go!

    Now I'm a little, or just slow on the uptake, but how on earth are you currently playing your games off your HD that you want to clone??

    Anyway - did you read & understand & thus follow this thread:

    Please remember your manners - say Thank You if someone helped , it doesn't hurt

    Once you have WBFS installed on your computer it will read your sisters HD then you can extract which ever iso(game) you want and place it on your computer then burn the iso. Also when you pull it off the HD it just copies it from the HD your sisters copy will still be on her hard drive.

    I think the soft mod is more popular in my opion. There are sooooo many options you can do to your wii once you softmod it. Also using a Hard Drive to run your games rock, No discs to scratch or even spend money on.One time investment with the harddrive. Hope this helps.

    150% agreed Bigjdoberman... There are ridiculous amounts of options you can do on a softmodded wii.
    My wii is currently my all-in-one media/gaming system, and I havent spent a dime on anything, except the wii!
