    Modmii is installed on your computer. Run it from there, and use a SD card to put the files off your computer to the wii.

    use a game manager to convert ISO to another format (Wii backup file system (WBFS)) and it will split the games in multiple files that USB Loaders can read without problem.
    In addition to splitting files, it can also reduce the ISO size down to the actual game size.
    If a game is only 400MB, the .wbfs file will be 400MB, instead of a full 4GB ISO.

    If you are on Windows, use Wii Backup Manager.
    If you are on Mac, use WiijManager (do not use Wii backup Fusion, it seems there's problems with split files).
    You can also use Wit (command line) which works on all systems.
