    USB Loader GX installs games from disks, but not backed up files...

    First post (aside from my intro). Here is the deal. The youngest child managed to wipe out the applications in the Homebrew (USB loaders). When I attempted to fix the issue, I ended up having to follow that nice guide you guys have.
    The children are notorious for damaging disks, so the plan was to use an older Seagate HDD to store all games. Between the 2 week interval of trying to figure stuff out, two of the game disks became damaged beyond repair.

    Back story is to explain that I'm not a pirate!

    USB Loader GX installs every game I own from disc, but the Mario Kart and Skyward Sword disks are now unreadable, BUT I was intelligent enough to back up the image files long ago. (I was running a PC then with WBFS manager, and a 16GB thumb drive, so I had to move games back and forth from the PC to the thumb drive and never had issues, this was pre "How to Sofmod Guide" which I followed to the nines).

    So my problem is the USB Loader does not recognize .iso files backed up on my computer (and yes, I did try Super Mario Wii [from disk and from backed up .iso] and it did not work... But they had before. I am sure some of this is the iMac, but there is always a way.

    Any takers? I realize it may be a computer problem or a wii problem.

    You probably need to convert the iso to wbfs files.

    Well, it seems I have the problem solved. I renamed some of the files, like an idiot -- way back when -- when I looked up the codes, and renamed them, success. FYI, the ISO files and WBFS files both work on the NTFS drive. No need for a WBFS Manager. At least for me.
