    I have a couple Wii ISOs on my computer and I want to get them onto my Wii's USB drive.

    Normally I go downstairs unplug the USB drive, plug it into the PC, use WBFS Manager to copy the ISO to my WBFS formatted drive. Then I take the drive back downstairs, plug it back into the Wii, and play my game.

    Is there a to load the ISO to the Wii across my home network from my computer to the Wii? Using WiiFlow or Configurable USB Loader or some other tool?

    I just want to be able to get on the Wii, point whatever program to my computer and have it pull down the ISO and load it for playing.


    Or is there a way to push from the PC to the Wii's hard drive the ISO?

    I tried searching, but there were about 1000 pages of results.

    You could try FTPII, which makes the Wii act as an ftp-server.

    In my home it runs at a mere 175kb/ps, but perhaps you are more fortunate.

    Won't work with a WBFS formatted drive, its really slow, and isn't any more convenient than just physically moving the drive each time.

    Yea, network transfers can be slow. I get ~750KB/s but that still takes quite a while, I normally just load the image on my mediacenter box and unplug the drive from the wii to the media center one and move it.

    Taking out the drive, etc. is MUCH faster. And FORGET about streaming the ISO's over the network.
