    Noob here who needs some help transferring from one HD to another HD

    Good morning everyone. I don't know much about this stuff, so please bare with me. I have a WII modded and have a HD to access my games. When the WII loads I have to go to USB loader to access them. Now, the problem. The HD is not working properly, so I would like to transfer them to another NEW HD. I have WBFS manager, but I forgot how to tranfer them over(ie: format, etc....) Could someone point me in the right direction for this? THANKS!

    Format your new drive(same format as your current)...Load the drive you want to copy from at the top then load the drive you are copying to at the bottom then press clone drive.....voilla

    EDIT did you do an Introduce Yourself post? you will get some good links for future reference

    Thanks for the reply. A little while ago, I had to do this same thing on my own HD and the guy who modded my Wii talked me through it. I can't recall the instructions, but there was something about partitioning etc.... Once again, THANKS!

    Multiple partitioning isnt necessary you can either use FAT32 that supports everything but requires a little setting up or WBFS if you only ever want games on it this requires no setting upFAT32 Hard Drives - Formatting, Loading, Ripping, Playing
    The partition must be primary and active on your HD for any set up to work

    Once again, thanks for the reply. Tried the setup and when I went to WBFS manager, got an error message when trying to format in the WBFS manager even though it was showing up. Note: I did run WBFS manager as an Admin.

    Thats odd What was the error? you could always try wiibackup manager...google it

    EDIT you did press the load button on your drive letter before pressing format? that could be whats causing the error,go to the drive tab,scroll down to your drive letter then press format that should work MAKE SURE THE DRIVE LETTER IS CORRECT!

    It said, error. Make sure drive is formatted by WBFS or not in use. VERY frustrating.... Thanks!

    If you want to use WBFS try formatting the drive to Fat32 or NTFS first and then formatting it to WBFS. That should work. At least it did for me forever ago.
