    not a great way to do things....

    but try converting the iso's to .wbfs (saving them on your pc), then try copying them to your harddrive

    does it freeze when its converting, or when you're transfering games to the HD?

    if its the first one, its a problem with your computer, if its the second one, its a problem with your hard drive.

    Maybe its the WBFS manager?

    Have you tried formatting the drive connected to the Wii via Gx loader and installing a game from a disk all through the Wii ?? It should take about 4~6 mins for a full disk (4GB+) and about 40 seconds for say Super Mario (around 300mb)
