    Headache from reading about WiiFlow...Need help please.

    WiiFlow is giving me a headache. From all of the research I looked at, WiiFlow looked like the best USB Loader in my opinion. I went back and restored my Wii (new to Wii Modding) to its original settings after I did some things via YouTube videos (mistake). I took everyones advice and started over. I restored it, and them soft modded it using Mauifrog's guide to soft mod any wii. Everything went fine, and I now have WiiFlow. All I want to do is play the games from my USB or External Hard Drive. I thought that all I would have to do is format one, put the games on it, and load them. Obviously, that doesn't work that easy, and I'm confused now.

    Can someone show me, or walk me through a step by step guide to playing the games off of a USB device? I guess I don't understand all of the terminology fully with the "nand" and everything else all of the guides talk about. What all do I need to do? Ive read the WiifloWiki guide, but that is very confusing to me, and I found the other guide "Wiiflow nand emulation" thread, but that looks like it is installing wiiflow on an external hard drive. I already have it on my SD card. Also, it looks like there is a newer version of it out. I have a USB external hard drive, WBFS manager, EASEUS Partition manager (which I don't understand, can't I just right click on the drive when inserted in my computer and format it to "Fat32"?), and one of my games in the .iso format. Other threads talk something about NTFS, so I have no clue on where to go from here. I just want to either leave the game in .iso, or convert it to whatever I have to and put it on a USB drive, put that in the Wii, and play it from Wiiflow with the downloaded cover art. Any help is appreciated?

    Thanks

    I have wiiflow in my sd card, and my usb and my Hd runs in wbfs (no partitions).
    The partitions for using the Hd in wbfs and fat32/ntfs are up the user.
    If you followed maui v9 guide, you will have in your sd card cfg, gx, wiiflow and neogamma you can run your bkps with any of those.

    You need to setup your drive. Follow the fat32 loading guide in the spoiler below. If your games are backed up on your pc in ISO format, then use Wii Backup Manager to transfer them to the drive.
