    Need some advice!

    I recently borrowed by girlfriend's Wii that she got in Hong Kong a while back. When I got it, it already had Homebrew installed and it was running version 4.2U (if I recall correctly).

    I also received a external hard drive (320 GB) that had a bunch of preloaded games on it. I planned on erasing a few games and adding a few games, but when I plugged it into my PC it stated that I needed to format it to D: (or something similar) to open it. I didn't want to risk anything so I thought I'd ask here. Would formatting it delete the current files on the HD? And would I just have to drag and drop files into t he HD to add new games?

    Thanks for the read and help!

    P.S. Is there anyway to change the language on the Wii?

    P.P.S. Certain games (SSB) seem to freeze while other games don't. Is this a problem with the ISO?

    While it sounds like you are trying to salvage illegally obtained games which we do not endorse here, I will answer the questions you've asked. Yes, formatting the HDD will completely erase all data on it. Dragging and dropping may or may not work, it depends on what format the HDD is in. I'm pretty sure you can change a Wii's language, however, I've never needed to so I couldn't tell you how. I'm sure you can find that on the forums here though.

    The games freezing might be ISO related but it could also be the system. If the IOS on the system that is required by a game (say Smash Bros) is corrupt or missing, the Wii will not be able to load the game.

    Educated but very informed guess: WBFS formatted HD and perhaps old softmod (SSBB is a dual layered game and old cIOS revisions featured broken dual layer support).
