    Hi all, I'm new to the forums but I've gotten great advice from here. I've got a question related to a problem that keeps bugging me that I haven't been able to find an answer to elsewhere.

    Using Ultimate USB Loader, v1.7, the option to "Install Game" is given to the hdd as you know. However, this appears to be broken for me, at least. I've tested it on a WBFS-formatted flash 8gb flash drive, with Wii Sports, and it installed it fine; yet it erased my backup of Mario Kart that was already on the drive.

    That wasn't the actual problem, but a minor annoyance. The problem is, I have a 320gb drive, fully compatible with the Wii, with all my games backed up on. I'm afraid that if I install a game now, that it will erase the other backups as well.

    Is it supposed to do this, or was it a minor fluke?

    I'm running system 3.2, softmodded.

    EDIT: After scrolling through another topic, it appears I've come across a problem where the games copied from the system display, but pc transferred ones do not. Reformatting and adding a new partition to the drive seemed to work.
