    Use Wii Backup manager. it will put the games in the correct place on your hard drive for you.

    Also, Questions about vWii homebrew should be asked in the Wii Forum.

    yes, but you likely have your file paths wrong.

    Root/:wbfs/game folder's name [GameID]/gameID.iso or Root/:wbfs/gameID.iso (or.wbfs)

    But I'd recommend just letting WBM handle it.

    Are you sure the Wii can see the drive? remember, they need to be Externally powered or using a Y-Cable.

    This is a virtual Wii question. it only pertains to Wii u. The Wii forum would give incorrect advice This thread is posted in the correct forum

    Seems like an HDD problem then, make sure you do the formatting again, with the mini partition tool, is gotta be primary, fat32 and 32k cluster

    You have an 80Gb hard drive? That doesn't seem right. Are you sure the path is set to use the USB hard drive and not the SD card? That or your formatting is all messed up.
