Not referring to using WBFS Manager to format a partition to WBFS and add ISO's... What I have is an NTFS HDD with a '/wbfs/' folder to add .wbfs files & that works great with USB Loader GX but it's not picking up ISO's. Is this a known issue or should it work?.. If its a known issue...how to convert .iso to .wbfs? Thanks.

Awesome. Took a few minutes to figure it out.. Download WiiBackupManager -> http://www.wiibackupmanager.co.uk/home.html
Go to Drive 1: Click on "inactive" and select "custom folder" to select the path where the ISO's are. Click 'transfer' to WBFS file and select the destination folder (wbfs/ folder on external drive)
Thanks.

I know I'm late but, I was changing some files. I changed a .wbfs file to .iso with that one website, but when I want to convert .iso to .wbfs will it save my progress.

Careful with Wii Backup Manager. There was this bug listed as "Fixed" in build 76. It was not fixed at all and is still present in build 78. I had an entire drive of games corrupted from this.

Fixed: A serious issue with title renaming that caused corrupt WBFS files. By not rewriting the WBFS header when renaming the title, it removes the possibility of the header getting corrupt. It doesn't need rewritten anyway, so the code shouldn't have been there.

ooh, Thanks for telling me. Should I use a previous build or avoid it completely?
