    Hey guys I recently tried to get iso files working in NTFS but for some reason it won't read my isos. Where do I put ISO files in order for them to work. WFBS files work fine when using Wii Backup manager but I was wondering if there is a way to get the game working without converting isos to wfbs. Thanks Ahead!


    Also I follwed mauifrogs guide and was wondering what you guys think is the best USB Loader for NTFS files(I have Wiiflow,USBconfigurable, and USBLoaderGX). Any answers would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    Awhile admittedly Pob's guide says the images can stay in ISO format, the emphasis with respect to his guide in about every category that WBFS is the better format. Why, you might ask? Because ISO will always be 4.37gb in size PER GAME. WBFS is a format that generally yields far more compression and occupies SIGNIFICANTLY less space than an ISO.

    With this in mind, we really do NOT recommend ISO. Is there a problem that you can't take the time to do this?

    I saw that one of the advantages in this guide of using the NTFS file structure is that you don't have to convert the isos to WBFS. I only have a few games and have 1tb of space. So 4 or 5 games is not going to affect the 1tb disk space I have that much considering I still have like 700gbs left I don't know what to do with.

    It's not a time problem as I have converted the games already to WBFS. I would still like to know how to load isos for future games if anyone knows off the top of their head where to put it.

    Also I have never heard that WBFS>ISO performance wise. I understand that it is smaller in file size but have only heard of people have more problems with the scrubbed iso vs the original iso(for example movies etc messing up).

    That'd be a bad rip causing the last thing mentioned. "Scrubbing" simply removes an update partition and fills otherwise empty sectors (that are read first) with 0s. I'll ask Pob on the placement for ISOs, though.

    There is no performance issues with .wbfs over .iso, if u wish to use the iso format then everything remains the same except the last file will be in. iso format, ie - location is still WBFS folder on root then Title id then titleid .iso

    First off thanks to both for the answers.

    I will try using iso for the next game I try with the format you mentioned.

    Also I noticed that another disadvantage of using NTFS is that I can't play Gamecube games from my USB since most of the guides say I have to format in 32kb clusters to play Gamecube games. Is there any way to play Gamecube games from my USB on NTFS structure? I have tried one gamecube game by putting it in the same folder format and even though the game shows up, when I try to load it(using USBLoaderGX), it just boots back to Homebrew channel.

    All guides should clearly state that GameCube games have to be run from a FAT32 formatted hard drive with 32k clusters. That is hard requirement otherwise it will not work.

    It also must be the first partition on the disk, set as primary and active (not logical).
