    Unhappy Unable to load games from harddrive with Wii Flow

    Hi guys.

    I recently bought a Korean Mod-Wii set (4.0U) and the dealer demo-ed to me how he run games through his harddisk by going through Wii Flow channel. It works perfectly fine.
    However, when I tried to run my own games from my harddisk through Wii Flow, it doesn't work and goes back to Wii main menu everytime.

    My harddisk is formatted into WBFS format, with about 60 ISO games inside. The games are all image files that are transfered into the WBFS harddrive through WBFS Manager 3.0

    Please tell me what should I do to play my games on my Harddisk?

    Help =(

    I managed to solve my problem. Right now I'm running my games from my HD thru' Homebrew instead, and not Wii Flow. All I'm missing are the boot files for the games in my harddisk to work with the modded-wii. You can either:

    1. Partitioned your harddisk into 2 parts. One part format into WFBS format to store iso games. You'll need WFBS manager to load the games into the HD. The other part format into NTFS format, and that's where you store all the boot files.

    2. Store all your boot files into a SD card, and slot it into your wii.

    As for where to get all the boot files, they should be easily available. Just need to search for it.

    Good luck!

    When you installed the wii flow forwarder channel did you so happen to change one of the 222 or 249 folders to wiiflow and then transfer it to apps folder

    Thanks Boonzilla, narse1979. I am unable to make it work still - can I know the boot files that you loaded onto the NTFS partition. Also, do you have the games in .iso format or wbfs format on the hard disk.

    Thanks again!
