    Help with running backups 4.3e NeoGamma

    Today I decided to finally softmod my Wii, and I've managed to get the Homebrew Channel, Configurable USB Loader, Homebrew Browser and basically
    everything in MauriFrogs guide. I'm on 4.3E and want to run the ISOs of some of my games, I've got the .wbfs for Twilight Princess but I'm stuck on what
    to do now. I want to play the game on my 8GB SDHC but all my homebrew is on my other SD card which is plugged in, and I can't have two plugged in
    at once.

    I would use a USB but it's only 4gb and I want to be able to run my copy of Xenoblade without a disc, but it's 6.5gb.
    Is there anything in particular I need to do, such as put some files on my SDHC etc.

    Additional Info: I'm on a mac, so I can't use any .exe's. All of my games are backups of games I own, I'm not playing them via disc as my little
    brother doesn't exactly handle discs well, and many are scratched/broken. I would also love to be able to run Gamecube games, but didn't really
    understand a tutorial I read earlier, and would prefer to not have to buy discs, although that is a possibility.

    Ok, I'm going out tomorrow I'll probably buy a 8gb one. What should I do once I have the bigger USB?
    Is it as simple as putting the file on and loading it through NeoGamma?

    Pretty close. Make sure your new drive is formatted as FAT32. Make a folder called "wbfs", then put your .wbfs file there. It'd be a lot better for you to get an external HDD though. They are getting pretty cheap nowadays.

    I have a 400gb external HDD, can I back it up then format it, then put the backup files along with the .wbfs folder on it, or can it only be the .wbfs folder on HDD? Also can if I want more than one game on the HDD at one time do I just put them all into the .wbfs folder?

    Thanks for the reply

    Yes you can have multiple games in the wbfs folder. If you already have a drive that's great! NTFS format I assume? Just make a folder on it called WBFS and put your .wbfs files there! You can load it with Configurable USB Loader!

    Okay so far I've got Twilight Princess to work perfectly, but my Xenoblade file is a .iso?
    I know PSPs use .iso but can I run them on the Wii or do I have to convert the file to a
    .wbfs? Also is there a converter that works on Mac?

    Okay I've ripped Mario Strikers and that was a .wbfs, but Xenoblade will take
    a long time to rip, anyway at all of converting?

    use a program called wiibackup manager or wii game manager to convert.
