There's your problem. You need iTunes to set the iPod to USB Disk Mode and then use the loader to format it to WBFS, or keep it as FAT32 if you want to load that way.

it's already checked but the option is dimmed, meaning I can't disable it if I wanted to

edit: interesting. It still will not mount when it's in normal ipod mode, but when it's connected via Rockbox (it's sort of a custom OS for ipods that you hack/install on) it mounts and now works perfectly

you can keep it fat32 (the format your ipod probably is right now) and still be able to use it to load Wii games from. And yes 30gb is enough for around 10-15 Wii games. I'm not experiencing any slowdown with my 60gb

Deltaburnt claimed that I have to format it to WBFS. If I keep it Fat32 than my games have to be lower than 4gb.

But most Wii games will be 4.12 gb usually. So does that mean I would have to format it into WBFS.

When you transfer the file and make it a .wbfs file how much does the ISO get trimmed down?

You select ipod as drive and it'll prompt you to make wbfs folder

select ISO's in file tab and it usually tells you the size that the game will be on the drive it varies from disk to disk some will be 2.5-3gb and some will be well below 1gb and not to forget duel layered disks
