    wii iso file

    I have wbfs manager 3.0, and i'm trying to load an iso.. but it wont recognize it, i think it might be a .daa file. does that make a difference?? and when i try to convert it to an iso file it wont let me. any ideas??

    All wii games are in ISO format and are never in any other format when unzipped etc. Are you sure you have unzipped the file?

    .daa if i remember rightly is a poweriso image file, that you would mount to a virtual drive to use, or burn to disc using nero or a compatable burning software normally used with pc software or dvd video. you could mount to that then re-rip to iso format, but probably easier to get another version of your game

    daa is a poweriso file.

    PowerISO - Create, Edit, Compress, Encrypt, Split, Mount, Extract ISO file, ISO/BIN converter, Virtual Drive

    not sure about converting to iso, never tried it.

    any wii backup not in iso is FAIL!

    thanks for the infos.. does anyone know if the size the iso file has anything to do with the quality of it?? cuz you see files that are 4 gb then you see the same files that are only 1gb.. does it make any difference??

    the smaller ones are 'scrubbed' they have all the crap removed, once you extract it the iso will always be 4.3gb. Scrubbed ISO's have updates and any extra 'padding' removed so they are smaller to download.

    yes, when yop unrar it, it will be 4.3gb, so just burn as normal, if you use a USB HDD then WBFS manager strips all the crap out for you when it puts the games on your HDD.
