    either us a WBFS Manager for the PC/Mac to do it for you, or most loaders will allow you to

    although if your using ConfigLoader or USB Loader GX then you dont need to , they support .wbfs files on a FAT32 partition, you can use Wii Backup Manager for this.

    If I use ConFigLoader, then I don't need to format my HDD to WBFS format? But you are saying the files can be played from the FAT partition of my HDD as long as they are in .wbfs file format....
    How do you convert backup ISOs to .wbfs files?

    Does this work for all games including NSMB?

    Most loaders are adding compatibility for NSMBWii. I believe GX, WiiFlow (the best one ever), and CFG USB Loader do, although I may be wrong about CFG USB tho...

    EDIT: As mentioned before, use Wii Backup Manager to do that (convert)...

    take note that WiiFlow doesnt support .wbfs on FAT32 partition, only WBFS Partitions

    WiiFlow is a beautiful loader but its just slightly behind the others feature wise

    althought Narolez is working on it single handed so give it time

    personally i would got for .wbfs on FAT32 and use USB GX then when WiiFlow adds FAT32 move to that [​IMG]

    its what am doing

    So I don't need to format a partition on my HDD to be WBFS?
    I simply place the .wbfs files on my HDD (FAT partition) by using Wii Backup Manager, and the games will play through the USB Loader GX?

    What is all the talk about covers?

    Gambia, The
    you need this(this is just gui version) to convert iso to .wbfs
    WBFS manager is for formating the hdd as wbfs

    Gambia, The
    you have to put it into a folder named wbfs on the root of your hdd no need for a wbfs manager
