    Thanks for the link you provided, but the link guides for how formatting and configuring the drive. I did all that. Now I need to know what tool I have to use in order to transfer games from WBFS drive to NTFS drive ? or impossible to transfer files between 2 different drives format.

    got it thanks ... one last question does the Wii softmod will recognize 2tb drive? I am about to order one from Newegg but want to ensure it is supported.

    how come when I convert wbfs to iso file, and all the iso file appear the same size (4,589,824Kb = 4.37gb). is it how it should be or I did something not rite?. I check at the wbfs file some file .9gb, some 1.2gb or 2.3gb but how come in iso format, they all same size?

    There is no need to convert the file to an ISO. Just put the .wbfs files in USB:/WBFS/Game Name [GAMEID]/GAMEID. wbfs

    The reason for the size difference is that the .wbfs file contains only the game data (which vary in size from game to game). The ISO is the image of the entire disk (all of which are 4.37 GiB).

    My old drive was format under wbfs now everytime I plug to PC, it is asked to format the drive. Question is can I use wbfs file to store in NTFS drive? It's pain in the neck to convert all 1tb wbfs files to ISO .

    You already asked about this formatting question earlier in the thread... anyway WBFS stands for Wii Backup File System. Basically, your (or any) PC doesn't know what the heck kind of file system WBFS is, so that's why it asks you to format it.... and it is also one reason why I recommended earlier to use FAT32 or NTFS formated drive, and also get a USB loader that supports FAT32/NTFS, obviously.

    I wish the WBFS would drop off the face of this earth. It is no longer needed in the year 2011. .wbfs files are still good though since they become smaller than .iso after converted.

    And yes, you can put your WBFS files on FAT32/NTFS drive.

    You old HDD will be read by the computer if you have WBFS Manager! copy the contents to your new HDD.... There is a guide on how to set up your HDD for NTFS(which i recommend) or FAT32
