    USB + Samba share?

    Hey fellas

    I've had my wii sitting in the closet for about a year so a few months ago i pulled it out and updated it to 4.1U. The other day I installed the homebrew channel on it and I messed around with trying to install the hermes cios or w/e and a few other things...

    it's been two days so I can't really remember but i know one of the names of the programs was TBR where i had to reverse to ios15 and then back and forth a few times. Anyways, I only have a 1gig usb flashdrive and a 2gig micro-sdcard with the adapter. So I read I can set up samba share so I can load the game isos / roms, etc. straight from my computer instead of dealing with my lack of drive space.

    I can't seem to find many good guides on google though, most are out-of-date as well.

    Any help? :]

    edit: td;dr I want to know if USB Loader GX or configurable usbloader is able to be put on a usb drive or microsd card and then have the games on my computer and be able to use a network share to run them..

    SMB shares find a use with file transfer from PC to USB/SD using one or two homebrew apps and also one or two media player apps. There is currently no implementation for streaming game isos over wifi, at least for now. Besides I think the wifi speed would be too slow/eratic to transfer the 6MB/s or so we'd need.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    weird, that helps a bit. but i've read somewhere (can't find it which is why i made this thread) that several people were setting up a samba share on their computer and putting all their roms there so they didn't have to waste space on their usb drive / sd card and i was told by someone to use that method with usbloader gx for loading isos

    i think ill just go ahead and try it myself, set up a usbloader on my sd and then set up the samba share and try and load the isos from it.

    thanks guys

    They are using the SMB share to access their classic game roms, nes, snes, movies, muisic, homebrew apps, small files.
