    Moving games from WII HDD to PC using MBFS Manager

    I've searched the site for these issue but haven't got any luck. What I would like to do is to copy any games I have on my wii hdd to my pc as a backup specially those that I just borrowed from a friend. I have WBFS Manager 3.0 installed on my computer and when I hook up my wii hard drive it only shows 2 partition and doesn't recognize the third. I get a message from windows that say drive ( ) not formatted; I believe that is my wii hdd. Please advice, thanks

    I did that but when I select the drive letter it's asking me to format the drive which i don't want to do because i'm going to loose my games. Any more suggestions? thanks

    yeah like he said u just hit load and it comes up make sure ur picking the right letter. also windows always asks to from the wbfs part coz it cant read it so just ignore windows when it says that

    hey guys, thanks a lot. I tried it last night and it worked. I tried it for a three times. For the first two tries it gave me the error message that I need to format my hdd but ignored it and on the third time I was surprised to see the list of games installed on the wii hdd. I was so happy and now I can move or backup my games on another hdd. Again, thank you very much.
