    All the tools I found so far are bloated and try to do every task imaginable! I just want a rock solid lite weight program that does 1 task... convert iso to wbfs.

    -has a browse iso button

    -has a set destination button

    -has a go button

    thats it! and converts perfectly. any tool like this?

    That was one of the "bloated" programs I had in mind when making this topic. I want all the fat cut out. just a program that does the the 1 task I need. program shouldnt be more than 1mb.

    I use wbfs_file v2.9 all the time. Find it here:

    http://code.google.com/p/cfg-loader/downloads/detail?name=wbfs_file_2.9.zip&can=2&q=

    Small size (141KB) but it's not a GUI, just a CLI app. Very easy to use as is, but if you prefer a GUI for it, there is this you can try:

    http://code.google.com/p/wiiwbfscommander/

    I never tried the GUI myself, so I can't confirm if it's good or not.

    1.) Install my wit tools (reboot is necessary the first time)

    2.) go to your "send to" folder and add the batch file "to-wbfs.bat"
    Code:
    @echo off
    wit copy "%1" --wbfs -E$ -vv -d $P/
    pause
    
    Now you can right click on any ISO, CISO, WBI, WDF, WBFS, WIA and also on extracted images and send it to the batch file to create a WBFS.

    Where is this "send to" folder? I've always known it was a folder but wondered where it was.

    In W7 (probably Vista too) X:\Users\Username\SendTo

    Maybe easiest way to make the bat is start command prompt in admin mode - write cmd in search field in start menu and press ctrl-shift-enter. Then in the command prompt
    cd X:\Users\Username\SendTo
    notepad .\to-wbfs.bat

    Paste the text from Wimm's post and save.

    Okay, maybe that'll work for him. I'm still stuck on XP but I'll look to see if there's something similar.


    Even then, with that syntax he could just drag and drop the file into the batch file and it would do the same thing.

    In XP the folder is X:\Documents and Settings\username\SendTo

    X is referring to the drive your system resides (probably C) and username of course is your username

    makes sense *finally looks to see if it's there* THERE IT IS

    (It's apparently a hidden folder in XP. Cool. Thanks for the heads up.)

    wii wbfs commander looks like crap and the last thing I want to do is screw around with my OS just to get some bootleg batch thing to work.

    So I guess a simple gui app that will do the job doesn't exist?

    I don't know why you find Wii Backup Manager to be bloated. Select the destination disk, add a file/s to the queue, click "Transfer" and you're done. It "looks" scary but it really isn't.

    If you don't want to "mess with your OS" just save the batch file to your desktop and drag and drop any ISO file you want to convert into the icon and it will do it for you. I don't think it gets any simpler than that.

    I guess I'll just use backup manager. Just would have been nice to have a clean app to do the job.

    360 jtag tools for example have individual programs for each task and they work great. Every program in wii scene is some frankenstein that tries to do everything.

    ok that seems to work perfectly. not sure why you didnt just say I could drag and drop in the first place.

    EDIT: talking about "wbfs file" that Dust2dust suggested. This seems even cleaner than I imagined. It will split at 4GB right? and work no problem with dual layer?

    Yes, looks like it does split automatically and it, too, also looks like it works fine with the drag and drop method without need for a batch file and it will create the WBFS files in a folder right next to the ISO file you converted.

    Do you want to split at 4 GB?
    Add "--split" to the wit command line.

    Do you want to split at other size (eg. 2GB)?
    Add "--split-size=2g" to the wit command line.

    Do you want automated overwriting of existing files?
    Add "--overwrite" to the wit command line.

    Do you want a "to-iso" variant?
    Create a new batch file and replace "--wbfs" by "--iso". Same for --ciso --wdf --wia
