    I was instructed to go to a FAT32 format instead of WBFS and am trying it out. But can't get a game to "install" from .ISO format. I used Game manager v1.5 to take the ISO and make a WBFS and when I did so I told it to save the that file onto the FAT32 partition. Only problem is when I was on the Wii there are no games available in loader.

    are the .wbfs files in the usb:/wbfs/ dir?
    and are they named properly?

    definitely not.. I will go look that up. if you wanna give me the down and dirty on how to do that i'd be thankful.
    *edit
    so it's essentially as easy as the way you just described it. I just need a WBFS folder in the root, what exactly do you mean by proper name?

    Haven't used Game manager before.
    I guess it should do the necessary steps automatically.
    If it somehow doesn't work, try a different tool.

    if it does convert the ISOs to WBFS correctly, make sure the filename and directories in which they are stored are one of the following:

    usb:/wbfs/GAMEID.wbfs
    usb:/wbfs/TITLE [GAMEID].wbfs
    usb:/wbfs/GAMEID_TITLE/GAMEID.wbfs
    usb:/wbfs/TITLE [GAMEID]/GAMEID.wbfs

    edit: if the actual game is larger than 4 GB the wbfs files get split. You will then have *.wbfs (4 GB) *.wbf1 (rest) just copy all of them to your HDD accordingly.
    hopefully game manager does that for you. if not use a different tool.
