    I have games stored in my hard drive in wbfs format.
    I used ModMii to softmod my Wii and I have a Western Digital hard drive with my games on it. I access the games via the USB Channel.
    How do I rename some of the games. I want to keep all the Mario games, Disney Princess games etc together for my daughter.
    Do I edit the titles.txt in the hard drive or the SD Card or is there somewhere else to do it.?

    I use wiibackupmanager, you can connect the HDD to your PC and run this program, you can then change the titles to whatever you wish

    Thanks for that.
    Worked for me,
    Here is more info that I got from Wii Hacks.com

    It took me some time to figure this out. There is a set of menus in the tab with the drives, but there is a second set in the upper left corner of the window, under the window title. Click "Options" then "Settings..." in the upper left menu. Click on the "Titles" tab. My preference is to check every box on that tab ("Use WiiTDB titles.txt", "Use custom-titles.txt", "Use WiiTDB titles for file and folder names", "Auto rename drive transfers", "Auto rename WBFS file transfers", "Allow permanent changes to wii disc header", and "Allow changes to WBFS disc header")

    Those last two about allowing changes, if you don't check them you won't be able to make changes to any the titles of any of your discs, FYI. Thought I didn't need 'em, found out the hard way I did.

    I like WiiTDB, so I clicked the "Download titles.txt" button also. Once I clicked OK here, I clicked Tools (in the drive tab, not the upper menu) then "Game Titles" then "Rename All" and all the titles changed to the nice ones at WiiTDB.

    You can also highlight an individual game and press "F2" on the keyboard to custom edit a single title.

    Oh, and the part about editing "titles.txt" doesn't seem necessary to me (although it may work... I didn't try it or see a reason to), but reloading the drive is important. After the rename is complete, change the drive to "Inactive" in the Drive tab you are in, then change it back to the drive letter. Your drive will reload with the new names.

    I done all the above and it worked on my PC.

    I done the following:-
    "After the rename is complete, change the drive to "Inactive" in the Drive tab you are in, then change it back to the drive letter. Your drive will reload with the new names."

    And it worked in the PC but when I connected it to my Wii it reverted back to the old way,
    Do I need to change some settings in CFG Loader.?

    I dont use CFG but on GX loader I have to disable the titles from wiitdb, delete the titles file from sd:apps/gxgloader as it then generates a new file

    I got there in the end.
    I changed the names in titles.txt in the SD Storage card and then on the hard drive,
    And now the names of the games are as I need them.
    Thanks for all your help.
