Is there a way to add Wii game backups to a harddrive without WBM?

    Recently my external harddrive died on me. Had a ton of Wii games from the past 5 or so years on it. Now I've got a 16gb usb for some random games but I can't figure out how to add games from just the filesystem. I don't have access to using WBM and I was wondering if there were alternatives to adding games. Much like how gamecube games can just be added by dragging over the iso, I want to do the same with Wii games?

    If the games are in their full uncompressed/unscrubbed ISO format (i.e. checksums match what's on the redump database) I think USB Loader GX will read them. But they still need to be in the same folder format like what would be created when using Wii Backup Manager. Like USB Drive/wbfs/gamename [game id]/gameid.iso.

    I've never tried this before and I'm going off of what I think I remember reading somewhere before. But it's worth a try. Let me know how you make out.
