I have been using this Samsung drive over the years and I have over 50 Wii games on it and a bunch of Gamecube games. I need it now since im going to be putting that Samsung drive into my original xbox. So what is the best way to copy over allt those games, saves and emultors from the Samsung harddrive to a WD one? Is there some kind of program that can just clone it?

If you're using a FAT32 or NTFS hard drive, just drag and drop - if you're still on WBFS filesystem, use a program like "Wii Backup Manager" and take advantage of the opportunity to switch to a standard format :)

The hard drive is in NTFS format and I have been using Wii Backup Manager to transfer my games from the PC to the drive. So that means that I can just drag and drop everything from the Samsung drive to the new one that im going to be using?

Yes! As long, of course, as the destination disk is already formatted in NTFS or FAT32 - preferably defragmented too, if you didn't just reformat it

But the Wii games are in wbfs format, but the drive itself is NTFS. Will it still work to drag or drop?
