    Best program for transferring games from my Wii HDD to my PC?

    I forgot to partition my external HDD and now would like to do so. I do not want to wait for all of my games to install via disc again so I would like to know which program is best for me to use for transferring my games to and from my Wii HDD and PC.

    Thanks in advance.

    Well first off none of the wii games are on your wii's HDD .
    but anyway if you want to transfer GAMES to your EXTERNAL HDD there are 2 options.

    1. google WBFS manager 3.0 and format you HDD and get a USB loader (like cover floader.

    2. There is something on these forms (search for it, name is like 1:1 dumper) and you can have your FAT32 HDD dump the .iso directly to it.

    # 1. well transfer faster so i recomend that and then ontop of that you can just play the games off the HDD, but if you use your HDD for something else then i would go with option 2.

    This time i made sure....

    Think he means his external USB HDD is his Wii's HDD.

    Yes as Jonathan says get WBFS manager, that will allow you to dump the isos to your computer and back again once you partition. A pain to be sure but faster than ripping those discs again.

    Yes I meant my External HDD for my Wii.

    I also found that I can indeed create a new partition without losing all of my Wii titles.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Wish I'd known there was a way to save my Wii games before I'd spent 2 hours dropping them to my hard drive so I could create a new partition and then another 2 hours putting them back afterwards. Oh well.
