how is it formatted?

i use WBFS Manager - download the ISO then use WBFS manager to upload it to the drive. I've heard Configurable USB Loader can support Fat32 though...

Mate, can either of these do legit and/or discs I have already got?

I think I tried the first one of these apps a while ago on Mario Kart, but never had any luck with it. My lad is now happily using the HDD system, but he's still got a few on disc that could do with going on the HDD.

The HDD is WBFS.

I know I could re grab them, but seems a bit poinless, especially as my NZB account is a per quota basis, rather than unlimited etc.

Cheers bud.

Thanks for that mate. Yeah it's GX I use, my lad found that easier than Config_Loader.

I'll try and find time to have a go tomorrow and see how it goes.

BTW. Over the last few days, GX has been a bit flaky. EG. Starting it from the Wii dashboard it doesn't always load up, either sitting on just a black screen, or eventually going to the "slow USB" screen, and then falling over again. Only way to sort it is holding the power button, even then sometimes it still won't load, and I have to pull the HDD out and plug it back in. It's almost like the HDD isn't waking up?

Thanks @ EDogg as well.

hi you cant have set up config usb loader properly with the forwarder if your kid noticed gx was easier all my grandkids use config you just put the dvd in click on the forwarder and when it has loaded all your games are displayed like a jukebox which can be changed to be in line or a turn table effect with the wiimote

I set it up fine m8, and it worked fine off the USB HDD, my young'un just preferred GX for it's GUI and layout I suppose. Couldn't give a toss myself, so long as it works.

hi i would advise you to change to configurable usbloader and use the fat32 version the loader goes on the harddrive so there is no need to keep the sd card in the wii, this will put new games in a wsfb folder on a fat 32 harddrive, so the drive can be used for other formats ie films or xbox also it is possible to have the games displayed as a juke box
