    Because I don't have a HDD or pendrive, so is it possible?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    no, not unless you want to rip the hard drive out of the laptop

    With this act of desperation, I take it you can't afford either?


    None atm.

    I'd look into a cheap usb stick 8gb or 16gb.

    Also, you can get an enclosure to use ur laptop's hard drive and partition it to WBFS

    Not many options.

    Theres a chip called flatmii lets you stream games from your laptop to your wii,its about 70$ though,might not be cheap but it uses your laptop as storage, that or you can also buy a 250 gb seagate there pretty cheap right now,for 250 gb.

    I use a 8G Sandisk Cruzer, on sale for $20 USD, as my USB drive. It's cheap, works and doesn't have the HD spin-up noise.
    I keep an archive of my Wii games on my PC but I really only play one or two games at a time so keep the couple of games I usually play on the Cruzer drive and use WBFS Manger 3.0 to transfer from PC to Cruzer.
    The 3 games I currently have on my Cruzer may take up a little over 14G on my PC, but when transfered onto the Cruzer they only use about 6G.

    even the fancy flatmii125 i got $50 shipped to usa from canada. and i just got a 500GB external HDD from for $55 shipped. if you cant afford either of those, you need to spend less time playing video games and more time finding a job.
