    Sounds like your drive is possibly corrupted.. Check it on WBFS manager, you should be able to rip the games off, from that.

    Have you tried making the wii formatted hard drive the PRIMARY one? It may be reading your ntfs or fat partition instead of the one its supposed to.

    hmmm... i got WBFS manager, where is that command to rip off my games??

    and, i really don't know if its in the Primary. I didn't hack my Wii, it was my friend and he did the thing with the hard drive. But the hard drive is used fully for games. ahhhh! i dunno!!!, what else should i do??

    should be like a clone drie option after you load the drive, its under your list of games, if it is curroptued just reformat it and defrag to try and get things back to normal

    I found this in the link u sent me:

    HDD Backups

    All hard drives will eventually fail. To make a backup of your Wii HDD, one can either use the CLONE drive button in WBFS Manager to clone the WBFS partition to a WBFS partition on a backup HDD or one can select a game or group of games and use the Drive-to-Drive copy command in WBFS Manager. In either case, the source HDD is to be loaded in the top left window and the target drive is loaded in the lower left window.

    IS This what i'm suppose to do??? 'cause i dont have another partition in my hard drive. just one. What am i suppose to do.

    I ALREADY RE-FORMATED THE HARD DRIVE, HOW DO I GET MY GAMES BACK??

    Formatting your HDD means erase. Erase = Data lost = Games gone

    I thought they had told you to try and backup the games first....... Fruitfly said to try and rip the games off --> After doing that is when you should try to reformat your hdd
