    I need a program that converts .ISO to .CISO, or can I just plug my USB in, use Wii Backup Manager, and put the .ISO in and it will load on WiiFlow?

    If you use wii backup manager to copy the ISO over to your hard drive, it will convert it to .wbfs, which is like a ciso, and it will load fine on wiiflow.

    I should've asked this at ask.gbatemp. You'd get the best answer.

    I don't think so. Your question has been asked several times before but anyways

    go here and try by yourself: http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/WBFS_Managers

    I would recommend WBFS Inteligent GUI English/Spanish by El Mesias. If I remember well it does what you are asking.

    IMO I don't see the point converting the iso to ciso as some guy told you before .wbfs would do the job fine.

    .wfbs works on a USB Loader, so I don't care if it's .ciso or .wfbs. As long as it works.

    converting file formats is one of the easiest jobs for wit:
    Code:
    wit copy a.iso b.ciso
    wit copy b.ciso c.wdf
    wit copy c.wdf d.wbfs
    wit extract d.wbfs eÂÂ# extracted file system
    wit copy e f.isoÂÂÂÂÂÂ# compose it to an image again
    splitted sources are detected automatically. add --split to create splitted output.

    Convert multiple files:
    Code:
    wit copy *.iso --ciso destdir/

    For converting the image "a.iso" to the image "b.ciso" call ...
    Code:
    wit copy a.iso b.ciso
    ... on a command line. All other lines are other examples.

    Just use wii backup manager. No need to convert your ISO's, WBM will put them on your HDD in a format playable using a USB loader. Couple of button clicks and jobs done. No need to convert beforehand

    And putting them in a "format playable using a USB loader" is not converting?

    Of course it's converting, if one chooses something else apart from .iso. But I'm sure what bazamuffin is getting at, is there is no need to mess around with CLIs when there is a GUI that pulls in your files and sends them how you want to your USB drive. Not everyone one has messed around with dos/unix type interfaces. I'm happy with CLIs, I've been messing around with them since the early 80s, but if I can p&c over typing, I'm all for it!

    should do it, assuming I have correct permission on the wbfs partition?

    v5.1 of uLoader has exactly the program you are looking for included in the package.
