    Thanks Man, That's exactly what I was looking for ! Would you recommend Game Manager or Backup Manager ? Will they both result in the game appearing in the same manner as the others from my discs in whichever boot loader I choose (with cover-art & everything) ? Thanks again !

    I personally use WiiBackup Manager, but that is your call. As for cover art, disc images etc I have always used my usb loader (GX for me ) to download all cover art. Once again, up to you how you do it. Doing it from your PC is possible, but I just prefer doing it from my loader on the Wii.

    Ok thanks for the suggestions ! Last 2 questions that I just thought of :

    1) In terms of game updates, are they important, as they will get blocked & what about playing online ?

    2) To uninstall the usb loaders I decide not have, do I delete the channel or just remove the folders from the sd card ? And to move the ones I want to the usb instead (to keep sd free), do I just move folders to the hdd ?

    Thanks !

    1) The games do not update, only the system. Some games do contain system updates but after modding with the Any Wii guide those updated wont matter, you can do any and all updates manually with a wad manager. And yes, you can still play online as well as use the Shop Channel to buy stuff, Nintendo either can't tell or doesn't care if someone's system is modded.

    2) If you decide there is a loader you don't want, yes, delete the channel and remove the folders from your SD card. To use Homebrew stuff off USB instead I believe (never tried myself) all you do is copy your apps folder to USB then when in the HBC you press either 1 or 2 (I forget) to open a menu which lets you choose several things, one of which will be to display apps from SD or USB.

    Yes only remote I have. I can see that the lights on it go off on that screen and unfortunately the buttons on console do nothing.....Any solution ?

    I dumped the forwarder channel from my nand for another user with the same problem and it worked for him. Download THIS and extract directly to the wad folder on your sd card. Then use WiiMod 3.2 to install it.

    Thanks so much it worked perfectly !!!

    Okay now I have installed one game in Wii Flow but can't decide which of the 3 usb loaders to use, I can't really understand their options & for some reason in 3d mode it shows Mario Kart over and over again....I just want a few things (simple is better) :

    1) 3d cover flow & grid mode options
    2) Ability to install to SD card or usb.
    3) Download's cover flow easily (automatic download is preferable)
    4) Quick Loading Menu
    5) Easy Install Option (automatic pop-up preferable if a disc is inserted)
    6) Must be able to read .iso's installed from PC.

    What do you guys recommend ? And if you could tell me how to setup the options correctly cause some of these programs have stuff everywhere

    EDIT: I have actually chosen usb loader gx, it has the cleanest interface of them all I think....Is leaving the program on default settings ok ?

    Thanks !!
