    Help - How to import wbf file into USB wbf harddisk?

    Hi,

    Recently, I had downloaded a wbf format image. But I had no idea how to convert to ISO nor import into USB wbf harddisk. I searched and google around but could not find the solutions. Please advise and help.

    Thank you very much!

    To transfer ISO's from PC to WBFS-formatted drive use WBFS Manager. Load your Wii drive (select drive letter from WBFS list). Right hand window-browse, locate ISO and select ISO. When it appears in right hand window-select the game title, click add. See graphic:

    Thank you very much for the advise. But the source file is in .wbf extension. So WBFS Manager could not read the file since the image is not in ISO format. I have tried to rename the image to .iso extension but it is given me file error. Please advise.

    Thank you very much!

    dave-if the file extension is really wbf that would make it a windows batch file. My recollection is that shows up as a placeholder when an app/program is missing from Windows? I think the ncWBFSTool works with several file types with one of them being wbi not wbf.

    @smart74 - As for your original question, I think you need to download from a different source. Not really sure what that wbf file actually is. Most of the Wii game ISOs download as rar files and will extract as an ISO.
