    Getting games to a HD

    so I got my wii ready and all, and i can burn games from my wii to my HD, but then i dont know how to take games off my computer and put them on the HD. currently its formatted with what the wii sets it at. cause i know i cant put on a file bigger than 4gb to a FAT format. how do i get this set up so i can get games onto the HD from my computer? i am on a mac if that makes a difference.

    How did they end up on your computer if you didn't take them off your Wii's hard drive?

    If you are asking how to get files bigger than 4gb on a fat32 I think it is simply impossible unless they are in parts. why don't you try using a programme like partition magic to see if you can create another partition on ntfs without having to reformat.

    If you use USB Loader GX, it'll strip the update partition/filler. What I'm saying is that 4.38GB disc images are generally much smaller in terms of Wii data. Most games if installed say via USB Loader GX will auto-strip that portion and fit within the 4gb limitation of FAT.
