    ok so i tried it for the first time.
    just installed 2 games using the usb loader itself.
    but how can i change the name of the game?
    1 game says "RVMX" or something like that instead of pro evo 2009.

    and if i use the windows program to put iso onto my ext hdd, does it change the size like usb loader?
    4gb game became only 1.2gb... so will the program do that too?

    No, the windows WBFS program won't change the size, however if you use WiiScrubber (Which is why the game from the loader is smaller) you can get smaller sizes.

    The windows wbfs gui will indeed change the size of the game dont listen to the post above mine.

    Try it out for yourself and see.
    Wii sports goes from 4.37 to like .38 i believe.

    I can confirm that wbfs for windows does indeed change the size.

    No matter what method you use to install games to the HDD, they will be stored in something like a scrubbed form. All dummy or garbage data is ignored and only the actual game itself is stored.
    This is great because it means you can keep heaps of small games on the HDD without wasting any space.

    The name displayed for each game is the name stored inside the game iso. Whatever the developers decided to call it is what will appear. At the moment you can't change that.
    For example, De Blob is called "Blob07", Boom Blox is caled "Spielberg | EA BoomBlox", Geometry Wars Galaxies is called "gwgalaxieswii".

    ok that's good.
    but what about the changing the name of a particular game?
    my usb loader says some weird name like 'RMVX'.
