    A friend of mine recently told me that Neo Gamma R7 lets you load wii games off usb devices like external hard drives.
    It's a lot more convenient so I went out to buy a 320gb external drive but Neo Gamma R7 doesn't do anything when I want to mount the games.
    I press A like it says and just stays there.. Do the games have to be in a certain folder or have a certain extension??

    The one i downloaded didn't come with a readme so I have no details.

    format your harddrive into 2 partition. format the first 1 with WBFS (search for the name) so it can be read by the Wii. Im not sure about using it as FAT (16/32) but WBFS (correct me) works for my SD cards.

    the 2nd partition is for your other files like videos, music, documents and staff you downloaded

    though, partitioning is a must, it's up to you to devide your external HDD.

    PS: you can have the whole 320GB of WBFS (or FAT) if you want pure Wii games.

    there's a program to transfer your games in this WBFS format or just drop and drag to a WBFS folder if you use FAT system
