    Hi, I was wondering if I could load wii iso's with a SD card that has all my homebrew stuff on it?
    I should probably say that I already own this game that I downloaded and my wii is a black 4.2 wii, so the DVDx dosen't work, so I can't play backups.

    Thanks.

    Yeah, just use ModMii to get your Wii softmodded and then use a loader to load games from SD.

    Then just grab a loader. There are many out there. I use NeoGamma.

    Do you mean a backup loader? Because I can't use backup loaders. My wii dosen't support the DVDx thing.

    DVDx and loading from DVD backup is old news. All the recent and often updated loaders - Wiiflow, USB Loader GX and Configurable USB loader support loading from USB/SD these days.

    Yes, but do I need to format my SD to WBFS, while I have the HB stuff on it?

    All the recent loaders support FAT32/NTFS as well :) WBFS is more a relic from the past.

    Ah, that's brilliant. So where should I put my ISO? And on Neogamma, should I select load games from SD?

    Neogamma haven't been updated in ages as far as I know, so unless you need to launch backup DVD's I'd recommend the other launchers mentioned.

    I like USBloader GX the most, suits my needs, many like wiiflow and others like cfg - I'd say there is no "best" as such featurewise at the moment, maybe best to install all three and keep the one that you like (they all use same directory structure for games on drives, so you can use all in the same time)

    Just place the .ISO or .WBFS file you have in a folder called wbfs on the SD Card. USB Loader will read from that.
    No need to delete anything from the SD Card.

    Now my ISO file won't add to my card, even though it has 5 and a half GB's, and the ISO file is 4.37 GB.
