    Convert WDF to WBFS

    Hi,

    Can someone help, I want to convert my Linux WDF (backup) files in to WBFS onto a new larger USB FAT32 drive, is there a windows based conversion tool?

    Cheers

    Thanks duimovichg,

    I've downloaded the windows based version, all I need now is a master class in how to use it... any thoughts?

    Just as a bit of history behind the problem:

    I've been using a Linux based PC to backup (to convert Wii games to WBFS format on a USB drive) the PC system was converted to Windows and now the USB drive cannot be seen as an drive letter within windows.

    I've managed to get the backed-up WBFS games off the Linux USB drive and format the drive to FAT32, but now when I copy the WBFS games onto the formatted USB drive they wont play.

    Any help appreciated with how to use the converter

    Cheers

    if your games were "backups" would they not be an iso or already a wbfs?

    Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here

    If you own the game rip it again. If you don't own the game that would be piracy witch I can't help you with.

    Hi,

    The games are in WDF format off the USB drive from when it was backed-up with Linux, I want to convert to WBFS format with windows.

    The problem is that there is so many games to re-burn (backup) that it would take hours, I was looking for a way to automate this.

    Cheers V-Max

    Good answer, but in reality it doesn't take that long to back up a game

    One of the benefits of using a USB HDD is the loading times and not messing about with the discs, the kids seem to love leaving them about the house or at the very least in the wrong box.

    Yes I could re-burn but that is what I was trying to avoid.. hunting them all down and taking up the TV for hours just to be where I was before changing to windows as an OS.

    (Ouch.. Thanks for the help MarkieH)....

    Linux .wdf files?!?!?! Never heard of such a thing. There is an old windows 3.1/95 program that created WDF files but I've never heard of anything Wii or Linux related involving WDF. How were you backing up games on your PC? A normal PC drive will not read Wii or GC games.

    I only discovered that the backups had a .DWF extension when I went to Windows (after I had formatted the Linux OS).

    But back to you comment. Yes your right windows can't even see a drive formatted for Linux. (and now I've got windows I'm stuck).
