    You can leave the new drive fat32. Wii Backup manager will transfer all of them for you.

    I switched mine over a couple of months ago with no problem and yes, you can do it thru Wiibackup Manager.

    What they said, plus make sure your fat32 for wii is the first primary "patision", and set to active. You can follow the fat32 guide [6 in my sig] for more specific details. The only difference is where it says to use the default sizing of the whole disk, you still start at 0, but your end is whatever size you want to have.
