    For example, my drive is broken, but can I let the tool format my hdd or flash drive, plug it into my computer, and move my backups from there, them use them on my Wii? That'd be a lot simpler than replacing my drive's ribbon cable.

    I'm sorry I didn't read through the available materials, I'm in a bit of a hurry.

    Yes you can transfer your ISO's from your PC to a USB HDD using the WBFS Tool. I did read somewhere about an error if the Wii cannot detect a Disk Drive, cant remember where though.

    I tried it with WBFS tool, and it worked perfect.

    that's how it should work. use imgburn for example to create an iso and then just add it. either through the command line application or one of the many graphical interfaces made by users here
