    Yes it is a possibility that they are still there. And yes I get the fact that your computer shows half of the drive as used, and that 500GB are used and 500GB are left lol (No need to keep repeating that bud, the posts you already made dont change when you make a new one )

    What loader are you using? Does it give any error messages?

    they should still be there. your config file on your loader is probably messed up. Use another loader to see if they show up before you do anything radical.

    You have no clue what you are doing or what has been done to your wii do you?

    What program on the wii do you use to play the games? hint.....it must be a usb loader, which one??

    Sometimes when you get a bad rip (that is what we call it when you copy a game to your hdd) it messes things up and you have to fix it.

    If you use a game manager such as Wii Backup manager on your pc then you could see the contents of your hdd. There is a link to that in my signature. If you have a bad game file it will show up in that program and you will be able to delete it then see if the games show up on the wii after that.


    Reading THIS will help get you up to speed a bit on what you think you are talking about, please look at it.

    Thank You very much for taking the time to answer! I have now download wii backup manager how would I go about erasing that bad file that I downloaded from a disc? Would you be able to provide me with step by step instructions?

    Honestly like you said I don't have any idea what is really happening here and what you said really makes sense

    Plug your drive into your computer, then launch WiiBackup Manager. Go to "Options", then "Settings", then "Startup", then under Drive 1 set it to mount the drive letter of the drive that you just plugged in and press OK. Near the middle of the screen at the top click on Drive 1. You may see WiiBackup Manager scanning your drive. After it is done scanning it will show all of the games that are on your drive. If you have a bad game it will show up in red. You can delete it by clicking on it's check box and then click "Remove".
