    Hello

    I use sometimes FTPii to access my SD in the Wii from my PC but is it possible, with FTPii or some other soft, to access my WBFS partition of my HDD through FTP, instead of conect/disconnect my HDD from my Wii ?
    And then transfer ISO...

    Thanks [​IMG]

    FTP Clients don't understand WBFS, so that isn't possible. If you really want to do that, you're going to have to use a FAT32 partition for games.

    to get this to work, you would have to (in theory) just make a devotab for libwbfs, make a bit so you can treat each game as a file like the .wbfs files, and have FTPii mount the wbfs partition at startup when it mounts everything else. then just add the wbfs partition stuff everywhere there is if/else statements about partition types.

    It is very very slow to copy a game via wii network. It's much faster to to carry the data with the drive to you pc and copy it directly.
