Wii Backup Manager found here :http://gbatemp.net/threads/wii-backup-manager-for-windows.188295/
should work better for you it will convert your files automatically , i also recommend either using fat32 or NTFS for wii games WBFS isn't recommend anymore

Why the hell are people still want to use wbfs ?
use fat, it's easier, compaticle with all known OS, use the same disc space as wbfs (with conversion)...

1. Format USB to fat 32
2. Download wii game manager
3. Convert the iso to wbfs
4. Copy to folder and your good

Toshiba Canvio hard drives suck horribly for Wii related things. I have one and I have to plug in and unplug after every game played. USB Loader GX will simply not load with the drive plugged in.

Agreed I have one also, ended up just getting something else.


I wish I could afford something different. Right now, when I want to play a game, I have the leave the HDD unplugged until after USB Loader GX is loaded and then go into options, set it for Wii and GC games and plug in the drive. This has to be done EVERY time I want to play a new game.

Seems I remember having better luck using it with wiiflow, but I can't remember my exact setup. Also remember it working even worse on the WiiU. I ended up getting a 500gb Seagate 2.0. I had prior experience with a 250gb seagate and defiantly didn't want to waste my money on something else that wouldn't work correctly.

Still to this day, the Canvio II does suck. It doesn't work well at all on Wii (think someone mentioned a faulty USB 3 driver or something). I've always been a Western Digital fan myself on Wii, but I have a 500GB Canvio USB 2.0 model running fine. Think Toshiba just didn't load the right drivers into their 3.0 models possibly.

I have a 3TB Toshiba Canvio, and it works fine for Wii backup loading (on fat32 of course, pls don't use wbfs), but it fails completely for DIOS MIOS. My WD 1TB drive is better for everything.

    Here's another video fog isn't being displayed properly on several games. Nintendo life also reported this. Water Temple in oot water reflection isn't emulated properly either the whole point of the gimmick of that room. Graphical glitches and poor emulation shouldn't be present at $30 bucks

    You can't save ghost data either in Mario Kart 64. Wasn't an issue on VC for Wii and Wii U.

    Even if they fix these issues I'm still not buying it. $30 for drip fed n64 games is fucking retarded. Their online service is still shit.

    game pass costs more but you also get a huge amount of games and they're not drip fed

    nintendo's offering was the worst deal but nobody cared because it was $20

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    now that it's $50, it's a really bad deal

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    also costing only $20 kinda excuses the poor online services a little bit, $50 demands better quality online

    they should've just offered a better service to begin with and charged $50 from the beginning
