Is there a way to play image files (not backups) off a USB?

    Every loader I see seems to want to perform a backup of a disc inside, which adds two extra steps:
    1.) The process of burning the game
    2.) Installing the game from the disc to the USB

    Wouldn't it make more sense to eliminate those steps by simply click dragging the image file to the USB and then playing the game from that USB?

    You don't have to install games in the USB-loader itself.
    Try this one: http://gbatemp.net/topic/188295-wii-backup-manager-for-windows/

    I can't conjure up words incredulous enough to represent my reaction to the fact that you thought you had to burn and then backup your pirated disks, so I'll be helpful instead.

    Just use Wii Game Manager.

    eh... no? Only time you'd need to restore a .wbfs file to .iso (or other image) is if you, for some reason, are going to burn it on a dvd.
