    Well, my DVD drive died on my Wii. However, I do have a USB drive working with USB GX loader. How can I add an image to the drive without installing from a DVD? Can I use a program to install the ISO to the WBFS drive?

    Thanks for any advice.

    There are plenty of threads for WBFS managers over in the Backup Loaders section. One of the popular ones is WBFS Manager by AlexDP. (You'll need ISOs from somewhere, of course.)

    Thanks for the help. I previously searched, but found 100's of threads. I sorry to create another redundant thread, but just wanted a straight forward direction. The WBFS manager is exactly what I needed.

    Thank you.

    also on topic of broken wii hardware should anyone ever have a broken SD Slot or card there is an application called LOADMII that can load dols and elf files from the usb external drive (like the homebrew channel for USB drives) and if your not running cioscorps on the console i suppose you may as well be now that the dvd drive is shot [​IMG] because it can only help your usb drives compatibility [​IMG]
