    I have two questions: can the wii run wii games in the ISO format that are split apart?

    If so, how would I split an ISO on an Android device?

    One of the many problems that occur is that you NEED a computer to do something. Now I need to know if this is possible without a PC but with a tablet that can use a USB stick.

    Yes, you can split Wii games, and no, there are not any Android apps that can do that as far as I know. Wii ISOs are either 4.5GB or 9GB depending on whether they're dual layer or not.

    Just get PC access, there's no other way. And if you're still wasting space with iso files, use Wii Game Manager to shrink them down to wbfs files
    (Not wbfs partition).

    If you don't need to run GameCube games from the harddisk, just use NTFS and wbfs files. No splitting required.

    A split is only a cut usually at 4GB-32KB = 4294934528 = 0xffff8000.
    4GB -x is the FAT limit, and 32K is the Wii sector size and sectors mut not cut.
    So, if you like, you can also cut at 4000000000 = 0xee6b2800
