    I think I understand. You now have two drives with games on but you cannot see on the Wii.
    What loader are you using, You need cIOS38rev14. Check this list for compatability.

    In WBFS manager, you should be able to see both drives. You can list the games in one drive and add them to the other. Can you see all games in both drives in WBFS manager.
    If so, it could be a compatability issue. Check this link.

    The drive you connect by USB to the Wii to run games from has to be formatted to WBFS, using WBFS manager.

    Did you remember to designate the drive partition as Primary and Active? Also only one HDD can use the outermost USB port on the Wii at a time.
