    You could try Wii Backup Manager and some other programs but I'm not sure if the one I listed will do it but I think it will.

    Try WIT. It can even convert the dirt under my fingernails to wbfs.

    You want to put a PC game into a Wii Backup File System container?

    if it's an old point n click adv game you can use scummV to play them on the wii but apart from that it's not possible to convert any pc game through a usb program [​IMG]
    they would have to be converted in some other way like turrican and a few others were.

    I don't think you get the point. It is certainly possible. It's not even that hard. The thing is...just being able to put a game in a container isn't doing anything useful. "a pc game" is just a bunch of files anyway. Without a means of using those files in the correct way, it's just a bunch of stored 1's and 0's.
    It's not different than using winzip to store all the files in a .zip file. It can be done...but it doesn't mean that emulators that know how to handle .zip files are automatically able to play it.


    I can second Blade's response for the click 'n play games. And there are a few old DOS games that may work (or gotten to work) on dosbox. And maybe - MAYBE - some linux games may work with this thing I know nothing about. But any random PC game? No way in hell.
