    No, but more details:
    A usb needs to be formatted to wbfs, (wbfs manager), and games on it wil be 1 gb max.
    for example, nsmbw is around 500 mb

    ok thanks guys. I see that in wiiflow there is something about downloading/trasfering games from disc and it tells me to put a wii game into my wii (which i'v not done yet) What exactly is this doing and is it ok to do this.

    You haven't put a game in your Wii yet? [​IMG]

    You probably mean the game installing function
    If you insert a disc, you can use any usb loader to rip it to your hard drive
