    Dumping/Transfer iso to wii hard drive usb

    I have a hard drive (wbfs formatted single partition) attached to the wii. I HATE bringing the hard drive to the PC to transfer games. Is there any way to transfer iso from my pc to my hard drive. I normally attach to pc, load mbfs manager, load games to hdd, re-attach hdd to wii, use USB Loader GX to play.

    You can try switching over to loading from FAT32 and then transfer your games via ftpii. Other than that with wbsf, the answer is no.

    You mean from your Wii to your harddrive, I guess?
    Yes, there is a way to do that. There's an option in all USB loaders to install games to your harddrive.

    No. I have game ISO's on my PC. To play them I must connect my hard drive to my PC and transfer them via wbfs manager. Then reconnect my hard drive to my wii, load USB loader GX, and play them. Just like I stated in my OP. I am tired of dissconnecting my hard drive from my wii and connecting it to my PC. Is there a way to do it remotely? Transfer games from my PC over wifi to the USB hdd that is attached to the wii??????

    Why perse in the form of ISOs? You can dump your games to the harddrive in all USB loaders using your original discs.

    Like I said, reformat your WBFS drive to FAT32, then you can transfer your ISOs over your wifi with the ftpii app. With a WBFS formated drive it is impossible. Sorry if you don't like the answer.

    5 seconds to plug in your HDD to the PC. Hour to transfer a GB over wifi.

    Equals not worth it. Rip your games using the Wii, then you don't have to unplug anything.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Still, I am curious why he doesn't just dump using his original copies. 1 GB takes about 5 minutes.

    How do you no my situation???? It actually is a pain to unglug my 3.5 inch POWERED hard drive, from my entertainment center, take it into my computer, hook it all back up, and transfer it. Reverse the steps to play. Especially when im doing this 2-3 times a week.

    Why just not dump using your original copies? I don't see the problem with that.
