    Deja vu.

    If you want to be able to play the game, WBFS is pretty much your best option for disc size. You can compress the image for storage using Wiimm's ISO Tools (or a GUI equivalent); converting to WIA format might save you a few hundred MB on your flash drive, but again, you won't be able to play the game until you decompress the image.

    Ultimately, a 32GB flash drive just isn't ideal primary storage for your games. In the worst case scenario, you might only be able to fit four games on there. Best case is way out there, though, if you know the sizes of your games: many have sizes measured in the hundreds of MB. That said, you're not likely to fit more than ten or so unless you're deliberately seeking out small games.
