    Hey Ive been trying to put Wii games on my SD Card so I can run them on my wii! But when i try to put them on the SD Card I always get the error :

    The File Too Large
    The File " .iso" is too large for the destination file system.

    Im not sure what this means, im pretty sure it has to do with the Format of the SD Card and i was wondering which format would be best for the SD Card and if i could still use my SD Card with Homebrew ect. Thanks!

    Right now its FAT32 and it does have plenty of room for the game im putting on as it is a 32 gb

    You can't put iso images on your SD card whilst it's in FAT32.
    You'll have to format it to NTFS.

    That's not going to help at all.

    You'll need to use a program like Wii Backup Manager to 1) scrub the ISOs and 2) split any above 4GB into smaller parts so they fit on your SD.

    I've thought the only way to load Wii backups from SD card is with neogamma, which requires a WBFS partition on the SD card.
