    I found this on Elotralado.net


    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=LA3GN6LZ

    and they all say it works but i can't seem to do anything with it..

    please take a look


    SOURCE http://www.elotrolado.net/hilo_se-necesita...windows_1212611



    FORMAT(thanks chis85) HDD IN WII USB LOADER THEN PLUG INTO PC AND USE THIS.......................with the standard comands

    ls = list......will list space left and installed games
    df = will list space
    init = initiates the drive
    mkhbc =makes homebrew channel loader (for those without one, redundant)
    add =add game to hdd
    rm =remove game from hdd
    extract =extract game from hdd to pc .iso

    EXAMPLE to install a game for my usb drive.

    wbfs -d /dev/sdb1 add game.iso

    replace game.iso with your game and also sdb1 with your drives numbering.

    How to find drive numbering......

    Open control panel...... admin tools, computer management, disk management then you can see all your drives in the pc. find your usb drive usually the last one with highest Disk number eg

    Disk0, Disk1 etc.

    if mine is Disk1 i would use sdb1, if mine was Disk0 i would use sda1.

    the 1 on the end signifies the partition you have wbfs installed too if yours has 2 partitions you can try , sdb2.......... or sda2.


    cheers


    P.s mine still gives permission denied...but works for others

    but it works only via command line, or also via windows?

    EDIT: ok...only via command line...
    so, to install iso:
    - type: wbfs add nameiso.iso

    done??

    Anyone know what WBFS IS? I haven't looked at it at all but I would think it is ext3 (modified) (seeing as what I;ve been reading one can acces the fs via linux)?

    It works if you just type wbfs ls to get a directory listing and wbfs df for how much free space you have remaining, not tried adding a iso yet though.
