So I can only access the files in the F drive... and if I just copy those files no games show up when I plug the new hard drive in the Wii

I guess I wouldn't mind starting again on the new hard drive but I have no idea how to do that.. and I don't know where to get games..
Ok, i suggest you start everything from scratch again (if you don't care about whats on the old hdd, right?). You do have the SD card with the homebrew apps such as USBLoaderGX, thats what you need to play Wii games, now you need your Wii games to be in WBFS format in a WBFS folder in the root of the hdd. There's an app called Wii backup manager (or something similar), to convert iso files from wii discs if you rip them manually. You can get wbfs ready files on the internet you can look on the internet to find them. Also format to Fat32, use some app to do it Windows can't let you format large drives to Fat32.

That's awesome that you've gotten it to work again! Now, if you can ever get your Wii onto 4.3E and get it to connect to the internet, (try using an Ethernet adapter) I'd install RiiConnect24, and consider patching any backups/wiiware games to use Wiimfi. It's easy, though you'll need to rip the wads for the wiiware off of your wii and idk how to do that, and if you want to patch any of those backups that are on that HDD, copy them to a PC.
