    Playing compressed Wii backups from a 2GB memory card

    I have heard about .cISO and others, but how is this done? I want to play my Skyward Sword backup tomorrow when I hack my Wii, but I will only have a 2GB SD. I have seen with DML, I can take Twilight Princess (gc version) from 4gb to under 1 and still be playable. Any hope for me?

    Okay, my compression facts were off. Got confused for a sec. Still, any way to play a 4gb backup from a 2gb SD card?

    If by a 4gb backup you mean an ISO then you could try using WBFS Manager and convert the ISO to a WBFS file.

    Yes, it is a 4gb ISO. So, by using WBFS Manager, is there any hope of playing the 4gb ISO from a 2gb sd card?

    Nevermind, just found out it won't work. I am trying to format a previously uncompatible drive to WBFS, and put an ISO on it, which it wasn't previously doing. So, we'll see how this works. If not, I guess I'm just waiting until later this week when I can order a compatible flash drive.

    I use wbfs to save space on my drive for mp3 and avi files. Just because your drive isn't on the list doesn't mean it won't work. Format the drive fat32 and give it a try, the guide is in my sig.

    It's the same guide I'm using. I tried using fat32, like I said, it wouldn't even let me put an ISO on it. It said my drive was full, even though it had over double the space I needed. I formatted it to WBFS, and added the same ISO to it, and it worked. Now I just need to wait until tomorrow to hack the Wii and see if it will load the ISO.
