    Hi

    At this time, I use an USB HDD, where i have stored my games on and it works. But how do I use my games and in the furture new games.

    Bacause when i put my HDD back in my pc again, it will format it before I can connect it.

    So how do I do it so i can fill more games on my HDD without format it?

    since you used wbfs instead of fat/ntfs you have to use a wbfs manager to do that

    First of all, thanks for your reply. [​IMG]

    Would it say, that I can fill more games on my HDD without format it?

    What about I think a lot of people call it mods like "WAD", "uloader" "Homebrew"and so on.

    I got the uloader.

    Can I with help of wbfsmanager get covers to the games or howto do that?

    i dont know about uloader but Wiiflow has an option in the setting to auto download covers for you! or if you dont have your wii connected to internets then just save the image files from WiiTDB on your SD card.


    and yes if you use wiibackup manager you can add/delete games to your hard drive

    My advice to you at this point, since you already have games on a wbfs formatted drive,
    1 - use Wii Backup Manager to transfer the games to your PC.
    2 - Format the drive to FAT32 using FAT32 GUI Formatter
    3 - transfer the games back onto the drive using Wii Backup Manager.
    4 - ReHack your Wii using Modmii, in my sig, click it.
    5 - run Modmii as if your wii is a virgin. have an empty 2GB SD card to put the files modmii downloads for you on it.
    6 - run modmii again, use the USB Loader section, and get Configurable USB Loader, FAT32 GUI Formatter,
    7 - modmii will automatically generate guides for you step by step for all functions....
    8 - If your wii is setup for internet access, Configurable USB Loader has an option to download all covers for you.
