    Soooo my friend taught me how to download games via [deleted by staff] and homebrew, but I'm finding a lot of ciso games and I can't seem to add them to my hardrive via wbfs. It seems I can only do iso games.

    What exactly is the difference between ciso and iso? Is there a way to convert them?

    Thanks

    i'd remove were to download them but anyways ciso is compressed and ISO, iso may not be, i normally use Wbfs Inteligent to store them either as ciso or iso

    no you cant convert ciso to iso (i dont think). your best method maybe transferring to the hard drive, and then extracting it as iso. ciso is just a compressed version of the iso which is supposed to save space when you transfer it over to your harddrive via a wbfs manager. its best that you use 'WBFS Manager' or 'ncWBFStool'. those 2 are probably the best managers ive seen around.

    I don't know how to extract a ciso....there doesn't seem to be any command for that.

    I'd try a Wii Backup Manager if there was one for Mac. I'm currently using wbfs but there doesn't seem to be a command to extract a ciso there either. i looked up ncwbfstool but that seems to be PC only as well.

    I asked many times before: Is there any specification about cios?
    What is "cios" in technical details?
