    I have two game backups in ISO format and wii with all the IOS's installed.. How do I run the .ISO backups from SD card? I obviously can't just copy ISO file onto an SDHC card.. do I have to format SD card in a different format and put the .ISO file in a specific folder? I also have an external HD that I want to use... Do I have to burn games on the DVD and then have USB Loader back it up onto the drive via Wii? I'm def missing something....

    You need to search around a little. Use this keyword: WBFS

    Also, you will need a loader. Again, look around a little on these forums/guides/wiki's.

    I have a couple of loaders installed... I cant figure out how to copy ISO onto the drive... Do i just copy the file in a folder on USB HD and run it via Loader? Or do I have to actually extract the ISO somehow?

    Again: search for "WBFS".

    You need to format your disk as WBFS file system and use a WBFS tool to put the iso on it. Then the loader will be able to load it.

    Use the tool in this thread. It's nice and simple.
