    You could always try forcing NTSC, most PAL games I have work well with that setup in my loaders.

    .ISO vs .wbfs

    Hey All,

    Grantee this question was already asked by someone and I just canít find it anywhere.

    In any event I would like to know the following.

    Question
    If I have a iso game of a file size of 3gb and it has been transferred over to my fat32 hard drive, Would the wii console see it as a 3gb file or would it see it as a .wbfs format and as smaller file size?

    Reason why I am asking:
    I have softmoded my wii last year with the 4.1softmod and used the WBFS manger to transfer my backup iso games into my drive and they were being converted to .wbfs format (which means a smaller size and more hard drive space .

    Last week I bought a new black wii for a different room in the house and I softmoded it the other day with the 4.3softmod and it worked great.

    I was about to use the WBFS manager to transfer my backup games to this new hard drive I got and I just realized you can now format a hard drive as fat32 and your wii will read it and see the games.

    Conclusion
    I know formatting your wii hard drive as fast32 is the best way and your better off, but donít you want to use the WBFS manager instead so it can convert the iso to a .wbfs format rather just dragging and dropping the iso file to the hard drive and it being a bigger file size?

    Do I still use the "Wii Game Manager" to convert and copy the files to my fast32 wii hard drive or do I just do the drag and drop?

    Thank You for taking the time reading this.

    Regards

    Wii Backup manager is used for that.

    Do I still use the "Wii Game Manager" to convert and copy the files to my fast32 wii hard drive or do I just do the drag and drop?
    Yes, that's what the guide says to do.
    which means a smaller size and more hard drive space
    If you follow this guide they will bet same size as they were on your WBFS drive. So nothing to worry about.

    Alright. I have finally decided to buy an external hard drive for my wii backups. I have a few questions:
    1) So I can use wii flow to create a backup from original disc onto my hard drive?
    2) How much space does each wii backup take?
    3) I have a backup iso on my computer. Do i just need to copy that to the hard drive?
    4) Can i create a partition to use for other stuff like computer backups and still use it for wii backups?
    Thanks. Ill be glad if someone could help me out.

    its all in the first post mate
    1 - yes you can (but i prefere configurable usb loader)
    2 - they can be as small as 500mb or as big as 4.3gb
    3 - yes with wii backup manager
    4 - yes but fat 32 will hold most of the stuff you need like movies pictures music and things like that but for things bigger than 4gb you will need a ntfs partition

    ^^^^^^^^pimpness from the mighty bmarlo ^^^^^^^^

    I currently have my USB HDD set up with WBFS partition.
    My question, is it possible to add games remotely without having to take the HDD to your PC following this guide?

    Yea. Use wiiflow or CFG loader and insert your original disk. Make sure you have your HDD plugged in. Then use instructions from the first post to rip it to your HDD.

    To install it you just need to extract the RAR to your SD card, then it will be available to load from HBC. You can then install a forwarder channel if you want to access if from the Wii Menu.

    You followed Ciles guide so either pack will work for you if you had a 4.2 Wii. If your wii was not 4.2 then you will need to use the 249 revision (as the 4.1 pack does not install 222 for some reason...I don't know why).
    Damn I suck!!!!
