    Transfer games back to computer?

    Once I softmodded my Wii and backed up my games with my LG-8164b I bought specific for this I then sold the games never thinking I would need it again. I had them on my PCs hard drive as backup and on my Memorex 250GB external hard drive. My computers hard drive crashed and I got a new one up and running. Now I want to copy the games back over to my computer as backup but have no idea how to do it. I used Wii Backup Manager to copy them over but have no idea how to bring them back. Can I?

    Ok I figured a round about way to do it. I downloaded WBFS Manager 3.0 and I can select the game (or games) on the external hard drive and right-click on them and choose "Extract ISO" then I choose a directory on my PC and it does it. Kinda slow though. Ok I have my external hard drive formatted as WBFS and my PC doesn't see it, every time I plug it in it tells me the drive isn't formatted and wants me to format it. If I were to format as FAT32 would Windows 7 see it and would I be able to drag and drop back and forth like a normal drive?

    Yes should work, I use wii backup manager now I formatted my drive to NTFS and can use either wbfs games or ISO games by dragging and dropping them onto the drive.
