    Program to convert iso to wbfs

    Hello I am looking for the program that will take an iso file and convert it into wbfs format. By the way, I am using configurable USB loader with my HDD formated in FAT32. Do I even need to convert isos to wbfs or will isos work on configurable usb loader? The reason I ask is that I have been renting games and installing them via configurable USB loader and I noticed that when it installs the files on the harddrive are in wbfs format

    You need to install WBFS Manager, it will allow you to format your HDD to WBFS and install ISOs on it which will be playable on a USB Loader.

    Well I'll put first that I've never used it myself, but since Configurable USB-L can utilize FAT32 drives natively, you should have no problem transferring your isos from your computer to the usb drive and loading them up without making any adjustments.

    Keep in mind that those isos you utilize through your FAT drive will remain unscrubbed, so that larger filesize will be appropriate.

    I have heard this term used but I am still not for sure what is means. Does a scubbed iso mean that all of the useless information has been taken out and you are only left with the essential data, thus lowering the file size? Is there a program where I can scrub the iso and then load it onto my HDD?

    That's exactly right.

    Here's ShadowSonic2's tutorial on Wiiscrubber.

    EDIT: I should clarify that you aren't going to be able to scrub down your isos and play them with a smaller filesize on a FAT partition. That is only accomplished with a WBFS formatted drive.

    Ah I see...well what if I scubbed the iso then converted the scubbed iso into .wbfs, with a program that I know is out there but I cant seem to find it..any help would be appreciated, then that would work to reduce the file size correct?

    The best I could say, and hey I could be wrong here, is that maybe you misunderstood wherever you got that info from. There isn't any way to convert a .iso to a .wbfs format which can be accessed by a FAT drive. Only a WBFS formatted drive can interact and use scrubbed games.

    Are you sure there's no way to convert a .iso to a .wbfs for a FAT drive because I have a FAT drive with .wbfs on it in a wbfs folder and it works fine. I just need to know how to do it from the PC with an iso.
