    so i had a bunch of .wbfs files and changed them to .ISO just by editing the name, now i cant figure out how to get them back to wbfs

    if i edit the name it just ends up as XXXX.wbfs.iso

    Is there any particular reason you want to change it back to WBFS?

    here
    Rightclick the file, rename, remove the .iso part.

    Renaming the file extension doesn't change the file type. WBFS files should play just fine.

    First, renaming does not change the file type so all of the .wbfs.iso files are still .wbfs files. Since you can't rename the files back, I'm assuming you're using windows. Go to control panel->search->folder options->view->uncheck Hide extensions for known file types

    its not there, the files are just the game ID. there is no .xxx anything in the filename

    If you simply renamed the .wbfs to .iso , why would the size of the scrubbed game suddenly go back to 4GB...
    ? All you did was change the file extension, unless it was .iso to begin with and never scrubbed.
    Have you tried re-scrubbing it?

    The trouble with WBFS is that most programs no longer support it and use ISO images just fine. Have you tried Wii Backup Fusion (or WiiBaFu)? It works wonders for conversion :P

    here

    If you're in Windows 7/8, click Organize in Windows Explorer, Folder and Search Options, click View, then uncheck hide extensions for known filetypes, then click OK

    EDIT: NINJA'D


    The actual filesystem is no longer supported, but wbfs format images are. As far as I know it's a more efficient file format of storing Wii disc data than ISO.
