    From 1 ext HDD to another

    Is it possible to transfer Wii games from a friend's external HDD to my external HDD? If so, how do I do it and which programs will I need? Thank you!

    USB interfaces on your PC and the WBFS application. All actual copying work will be done via 1 PC these drives are attached to.

    Okay, so all I have to do is plug-in both HDDs to my PC and use the WBFS Manager? How long does an average game take to transfer? Thanks for the quick reply btw!

    Make sure you've got a USB 2.0 interface. It will, indeed take a while. A person cannot give you any meaningful response on one game. Stripped it might be 350mb like NSMB or 4gb like Dead Space, you're asking the impossible. In all cases were a relatively large amount of data is being copied, it will last between 12-24 hours. It depends on size of HD, 2.0 versus 1.1 USB interface, buffers of HD, and speed of drives.
