Either download the iso again or you could try to "unscrub" the iso with wii scrubber. Choose diff option and save the diff file. Then click unscrub, point the scrubber to the iso and the diff file you've just created. It should build back up the iso as it's intended to be, but since you've used another program it might be irreversable.
    i believe this mistake is known. this person was using the program in order to make disk backups instead of the coasters they were having. the program served it's purpose and it was not known at the time about the problems that would arise

    At the time that i was using the backup program, i was a noob and i used the twilight hack and followed guides from all over the interweb and they led me to neogamma and the guide said to run the iso through the "backup creator" program before burning the iso and playing it on the wii. This worked great at the time.........but as time went on, my collection of disks grew and i started to look at other means of wii game playability.......in came USB Loader GX.

    This was an awesome discovery for me so i said "Why not do away with all these disks and put them all on a hard drive?" So....thats what i was doing. I grabbed one of the wii disks that i had burnt (that work perfectly fine through neogamma disc loader) put it in the wii, started up usbloader gx and selected the + icon and a message appears "Not a wii disk" so i say "Thats kool, probably something to do with the backup disk, not being an "original" wii disk." I then go to my computer hard drive where i stored the iso's after they were ran through the app and proceeded to use wbfs manager to load the iso images.....and the picture on the 1st page is what happened. a bunch of jibberish.....

    if i had to do it all over i would have just used the usb loader and skipped disks all together....but i was being a noob...

    i hope that explained it a little better.

    Your converted ISO files have the file extension .ISO or cISO? If .ISO, then no I don't know of a fix-you are better off redownloading the games instead of trying to re-patch. If .cISO then there is a way to generate an ISO file.

    Ok I get it now, was just wondering. Have you tried a program called wbfs intelligent? Not to get your hopes up once more but it's like wbfs manager, but allows you to backup straight from dvd to wbfs drive. It might have more chance of recognising the discs than the wii, as the wii has drive restrictions to not accept discs under 4.37 gig.

    WBFS Intelligent GUI is one of the WBFS Manager code spinoffs that I was thinking of when asking if the files might be cISOs.

    As the files are created from yet another source and are not cISO, I don;t think that either WBFS Intelligent GUI or NCWBFSTool will recognize those files. No harm in trying if you want, though.

    No neither of those recognise the iso's. I was thinking more if he had the games on disc, but I suppose you'd get the same results.
