Hi there,

My ISO Wii games work just fine with Dolphin emulator so the quality of the ISO is not the problem, but when I use Wii backup manager to change the ISO's to WBFS and put them on my hard drive (FAT32) my Wii and neither Dolphin emulator won't play the game.

It seems that they only work in the ISO format, somewhere in converting to WBFS there seems to be a problem?

Anybody who can help me?:)

I'm using the latest version of Wii Backup Manager (Build 78)

WIT is actually a better tool to use. It just requires a bit more to learn how to use it as it's a CLI utility. WBM is fine except for Super Smash Bros Brawl. It corrupts that game's partition table.

The 4GB boundary was already turned on, so that's not the problem.

In WIT i tried using the Syntax: wit copy GAME.iso GAME.wbfs.
It converted the ISO to WBFS fine and the WBFS file still works in Dolphin. But the file size of the WBFS is still the same as the ISO (4.37GB). How can I reduce the size?

Try "wit copy GAMEID.iso GAMEID.wbfs --split".

That will make a "GAMEID.wbf1" file with whatever is over 4GB in it. The cIOS accesses it as if it was part of the main file.

Sorry for the late reply, I was away so I couldn't try it earlier.
I finally managed to get the ISO working by letting WBM unrar the files to ISO instead of doing it myself trough unRarX (Mac)

Thanks for the help!
