    Hello, so I installed the homebrew channel on my vWii using the wupserver and an SD card.

    How could I play Wii "backups" on a flashdrive?

    Can I also play it as iso files?

    Also, are there Wii games that I can install as WAD files onto the Wii menu?

    (I do have cIOS installed too if that is a requirement)

    Try this guide https://sites.google.com/site/wiiflowiki4/installing-wiiflow

    This will install wiiflow - my favorite usb loader. You can play .wbfs files from a hdd/ flash drive or sd card.

    You can't install wii games as wads, but I believe there is some way to set up forwarders in vwii mode. I don't know how this differs from wii forwarders - so do your homework.

    Do I need the Wii ISO file on the root of the Flashdrive to play the game or is there a format?
