    wbfs manager for wii

    Hello,

    I recently softmodded my wii with doggegs 3.1-4.1 tutorial.
    I also got a 500 GB toshiba hard drive connected to my wii.
    I am thinking of putting FTPii on my wii for transferring files over my network.
    I want to move iso files from my pc to the HDD, attached to the wii.
    From what I have read FTPii can not transfer files from my pc to the wbfs partition.
    As I have a ntfs partition of >20 GB and a fat32 partition of about 3 GB, transferring the iso's is no problem.
    However, I can't directly transfer them to the wbfs partition.
    So my question is:
    Is there a wii app that lets me transfer iso's to the wbfs partition?
    Or is there maybe a wbfs manager that can connect to the drive over the network?
    Or is there a way to share the drive , still attached to the wii, so I can acces it from my computer with a wbfs manager?
    In short: is there a way to transfer iso's from my computer to the wbfs partition over the network?

    you like it the hard way?
    why don't you connect the drive to your pc and then use wbfs manager.
    also you can use wiigamemanager described in the Fat32 loading guide linked below which can be used for ntfs accordingly.
    like convert .iso to .wbfs files and then use them off your drive (no need to format a partition to wbfs and loose space on it).

    <--suggestions helped? press Thanks

    Thank you for the quick reply.
    The reason I dont want connect by usb is that it is a bit clumsy, to say the least.
    But the things you suggest are not what I am looking for, but thanks for the help anyway.
    Where I search for is something like WiiXplorer with wbfs support.
    Or wbfs manager, but then for the wii.

    That would be really slow and not worth it in my opinion. What you are asking for doesn't exist. The only way to do it is with ftpii and a FAT32 HDD. Wbfs loading is not needed anymore.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    yes sure i get it but.. seriously wifi speed is bad. and for several games it takes hours..
    just setup your game collection on the pc, a game takes 10 min (an hour over wifi?)

    or use that wiixplorer thing (can transfer files i guess) when your drive is fat32 formatted, would allow you to easily drop normal game files .wbfs on your drive without the need to have wbfs support for anything (which does not exist i believe). they will show up in your loader afterwards

    Ok. Then i think i can give up my search. But speed isn't the problem. I have time enough. So if someone would know a way to transfer iso's to the wbfs partition, please let me know.
