    Why do you think you need to "open" the ISOs to play them on Wii?

    Use Wii Backup Manager to convert it to .wbfs

    Because converting a GameCube disc image to WBFS is clearly the solution.

    Besides, no solution is required when the problem doesn't even exist.

    Is there any particular reason why you're trying to mount it with Daemon Tools or open it with 7-Zip instead of doing the logical thing and copying it to the USB storage device you use for USB Loader GX and/or Nintendont?

    Behind you
    Super Mario Sunshine is NOT a Wii game, therefore you can only use DIOS MIOS to run it but its a bit tricky to set it up.
    As for your Wii games, download Wii Backup Manager and use that to transfer your games to your USB pendrive/EHDD

    I'm guess you're really really new here.

    Nintendont has replaced DIOS MIOS and is significantly easier to set up. Just run it from HBC and/or chainload from another loader.

    You don't have to open it to copy it to your SD card. just copy/paste it on there.

    Amazing that some people still don't know about Nintendont, and recommend DIOS MIOS. :wtf: On a side note, I want to thank you for your contributions to this great app. :grog:

    If you have a working ISO that opens in Dolphin, use DiscEx. You can just Google it and download it. Now drag your ISO file to the DiscEx application file and it will create a new folder for you with random letters and numbers. Copy that folder to the "Games" folder on the root of your SD card and now you'll be able to play your game in Nintendont.

    no no, on your SD card make a folder called GAMES and then make another folder inside there and call it whatever you want and then rename the ISO to game.iso and then intendont will find it.

    Example sd:/games/mario Sunshine/game.iso

    this should work
