    Can I run downloaded ISO's via USB Loader GX?

    I just need to know if its possible to run ISOS downloaded from popular sites like wehackwii or wiiisos, etc. using USB Loader GX

    OR

    Usb Loader GX only works with the ripped DVD's you proccess on your console.

    If the former question is correct, does USB Loader GX loads more ISO's games than the Waninkoko's Backup Loader ?

    Of course, loading physical discs from Backup Loader or a chip-modded wii is something everybody would like to avoid. And I'm sure the #1 wii gamers dream is to have hundreds of wii games in a small and beautiful WD Passport HDD or similar, and just pick up the one you want to play from a scrolling list.

    Thanks.

    You need to get the IOS's onto a HDD or flash drive to be able to play them with GX. If you do not want to burn them to disc then use WBFS manager, it's an app that installs to your computer that will allow you to move ISO's from your computer to a WBFS formatted drive.

    If WBFS manager recognizes the ISO then it will copy it over for you. Just leave the ISO in the rar format as you cannot extract it, unless it is a ciso format, that ciso format required a different application.

    So basically, the WBFS will check the .rar file and do all the work if it's a good one ?
    How can I know from torrent files if they are WBFS compatible ?
    Is there a site specialized on USB Loader GX compatible ISO's ?
    LU70, 4.1U, cIOS38 rev14, USB Loader GX With 500GB WD Passport Essential (WBFS formatted)
    Another successful testimony thanks to wiihacks.com guys.

    Generally, if a torrent says Wii ISO then it is a Wii ISO. WBFS Manager will not detect a bad or corrupted download, but it will scrub the ISO and remove any updates.

    The only formats of wii iso's I have seen are ISO and ciso. It's not that USB Loader GX is compatible but WBFS manager must be compatible. If the ISO looks like a rar archive file then WBFS Manager will read it. There is a link to WBFS Manager in my signature.
