    Do you HAVE to use a backuploader to backup a disc?

    I already have about 500G of games trimmed and scrubbed that play fine in FlatMii from my computer hard disk... Can I just copy them all over to the WBFS formatted USB hard drive and start playing?

    I sure hope so..

    BTW: I have never done anything Homebrew until this USB loader program, and I can't say enough about how easy it was.. Literally 12 minutes from start to finish!

    It'd take a little while for your iso images to copy over to a WBFS partition, but otherwise that's pretty much it. Your best bet for mass movement of many iso files would probably be the "WBFS Intelligent GUI" for Windows. Hook up both of your drives, get your new WBFS partition set up and hit the copy button. Should work just fine.

    USB loaders need to run off of a WBFS drive though.

    Thanks!

    Yes, I am finding copying to WBFS partitions is SLOW.. But- so far, so good!
