    Hi folks. Just received my new HD in the post . Im going to Format it to FAT32 then create a wbfs folder. Im going to copy the games from my computer using wii backup manager and they are iso files.

    Will wii backup manager convert the iso files to wbfs files for me?

    Any other helpful information to do this would be much appreciated, thanks.

    Im also using EASEUS to format the HD . Anyone used this ? and does it work? Thanks

    yes.

    i still have a wbfs partioned HDD ( im from the olden days of wii hacking), but from what ive read it works the same way. may want to wait on someone thats got a fat32 drive to give you a positive answer though.

    as far as formatting the drive, ive always used FAT32format, but only if you like command line stuff.

    yes

    remmeber if the iso is over 4gb then it wont be recognised unless in wbfs format

    So just copy iso to HD with wii backup manager and it will convert it for me without me having to change any settings. My iso's are all this size - 4,589,824 KB.

    when you set up 2 locations on Wii Backup manager
    click on the source iso image and when you go to dropdown on tranfer it will give you option to tranfer as WBFS so will transfer and convert

    no settings to adjust, WBM automatically splits your iso file for you.

    Also you may want to use CFG USB-loader to load the games from the wbfs folder.

    My FAT32 drive has a fit when I try to use the autosplit feature... setting it to 4gb split instead of auto fixes the issue I have.
