    How do you play them without extracting? I only have a 4gb USB, so I can't use a 4.7GB normal game. If I put it in without any differences, it just doesn't show up. *Wishes my dog didn't eat my disc*

    Scrubbing an ISO only really helps when you compress them. AFAIK you can't play ISOs if they're converted. You can, however, convert the USB stick to WBFS, as the program only transfers the actual size of the game to the USB stick. Although this method is...rather disliked, it's pretty much the only one you've got.

    Save up and buy a bigger USB stick. They go on sale all the time.

    Seriously? I'm not looking forward to wasting a 100 bucks on just one game. Oh well, I found out my friend has a 5GB USB, and she said I could have it. Thanks guys!

    us a PC application called Wii Backup Manager to convert your .iso file to .wbfs format, which will remove the junk data from the iso and leave you with a file containing just the game data..some wii isos can be converted from 4.7gb to just a few hundred megabytes this way...

    WBFS partitions are dislike BECAUSE there is a better way.
    Using .wbfs files on a FAT32 or NTFS partition uses the same space but is MUCH more flexible.
    Use e.g. WiiBackupManager to create them.
