    Ok. I'm Running Windows XP and I want to open my WBFS Partition on my flash drive from Waninikoko's ISO USB Loader. I'm going to upgrade to a bigger storage device and I dont want to have to redump all those games again. When I attempt to open it, it tells me to format. Any Help? [​IMG]

    Grab the WFBS tool and use it to extract the isos.

    It's not that hard to use command prompt.
    Think it's your only real option for now.

    The WFBS tool, it's been ported to Windows.

    You won't be able to actually browse it windows-style but you can see which games are installed and extract them by using the right commands. Just follow the guide provided with the tool.

    someone is bound to make a GUI ver of this. I love command prompt as much as the next guy that used to run DOS. But this is 2009.

    Command prompt isn't that bad and also if you think about as fast as the port came to windows you can't complain. I admit there will probably be a gui but hey cmd prompt isn't all that bad. Beggars can't be choosers. The tool does its job.

    Use the following text and make a batch file to put in the same folder as wbfs_win.exe

    CODE@echo off
    TITLE WBFS Tool
    echo WBFS Tool
    echo.
    echo.
    echo Enter the drive letter, Ex. G
    set /p var1=
    :menu
    cls
    echo WBFS Tool
    echo.
    echo.
    echo MENU
    echo ====
    echo.
    echo Drive currently set to %var1%:\
    echo.
    echo 1 - Format drive to WBFS
    echo 2 - List disc titles
    echo 3 - Dump title from USB
    echo 4 - Remove title from USB
    echo 5 - Add ISO to partition
    echo 6 - Drive info
    echo.
    echo 7 - Change drive letter
    echo 8 - Quit
    choice /c:12345678>nul
    if errorlevel 8 goto done
    if errorlevel 7 goto change
    if errorlevel 6 goto info
    if errorlevel 5 goto add
    if errorlevel 4 goto remove
    if errorlevel 3 goto dump
    if errorlevel 2 goto list
    if errorlevel 1 goto format
    echo CHOICE missing
    goto done

    :format
    wbfs_win.exe %var1% init
    pause
    goto menu

    :list
    wbfs_win.exe %var1% list
    pause
    goto menu

    :dump
    echo Disc id?
    set /p var2=
    wbfs_win.exe %var1% extract %var2%
    pause
    goto menu

    :remove
    echo Disc id?
    set /p var2=
    wbfs_win.exe %var1% remove %var2%
    pause
    goto menu

    :add
    echo ISO File path (or name if in same folder)?
    set /p var3=
    wbfs_win.exe %var1% add %var3%
    pause
    goto menu

    :change
    echo New drive letter? Ex. G
    set /p var1=
    pause
    goto menu

    :info
    wbfs_win.exe %var1% info
    pause
    goto menu

    :done

    Put the above text in notepad and save as wbfs_win.bat
    open the .bat file and it has an easy to use text interface [​IMG]

    Cmd is not my specialty, but damn......you only need two commands!

    wbfs_win.exe init

    wbfs_win.exe add blah.iso

    Anyone who's half decent with a computer should be fine with command prompt, if not you really shouldn't be hacking and exploiting your wii.

    A GUI *might* be simpler if you are doing something once or twice but for repetitive tasks the command line rules, even in 2009.

    How would you use a GUI to take 50 ISOs and rename each one to remove spaces from the filename?
