    Dont quote me on this, but I believe you have to split them and put them in the folder like you would any other game. From the 1 split game I tested it seemed to work.

    You use a program called Wiibackup Manager, and it converts to.WBFS file and transfers it to the drive.
    they will all go in to a WBFS Folder. Look Here for the app and instruction's on how to use it..-->Fat32 Guide

    ok thanks.. i am using wii backup manager already for 3 years. But just now i noticed that it has split my 4gb games as : - .wbfs + .wbf1

    Is it doing the right thing ? Does that play in the wii properly ? [Currently dont have wii]

    Yes, it is doing it right and it will play just fine.
    No lag or anything.

    Fat 32 has a limit up to 4gb's that why they get split up.

    true...the mistake i had been doing is that, i just copy the wbfs files directly to fat32 formatted hdd.. the catch is that, it needs to be pushed via the manager so that it splits and sends. But for games less than 4gb it can be just copy pasted.

    ok thanks...will give it a try.. thank you again
