UPDATE May 2009 'USB Loader' A new way to play your Wii games has been released it's called a 'USB Loader' and was released by Waninkoko, the USB Loader will allow you to load your game backup collection from a USB Mass Storage device. So everything from USB Portable Hard-drives to Flash drives are supported. the newest version is USB Loader 1.5 and it can be found at eurasia.nu in the downloads section look for 'USB Loader v1.5 (wad)' (free registration required) installation is simple, copy the 'usb_loader_1_5.wad' file to your 'WAD' folder on the memory card used earlier and install using 'Wad Manager', select the 'usb_loader_1_5.wad' file, then press + to install it. You also need to install the custom cIOS (a custom version of the Wii's operating system) make sure the 'IOS36-64-v1042.wad' file is located on the root of a SD card. Now under your 'apps' folder on the SD Card copy the folder 'cios36 rev10 installer'. Insert the SD card on your Wii and launch 'Home Brew' and run the 'cios36 rev10 installer' and select 'Wad Installation', Once the cIOS is installed reboot the Wii and you should see the new 'USB Loader Channel'.
The WBFS drive can be read in windows by downloading wbfsmanager it needs .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 (the installer will prompt you to automatically download and install it if you don't already have it.)
Covers not showing up! I had problems getting this feature working it turns out I had installed an older version of the 'cios36 rev10' that had some issues so if you have this problem make sure you update to the one listed above it will solve your issues.
