    I was converting an iso file to wbfs with wii backup manager, and the result was one wbfs file (as expected), and one wbf1 file (much smaller.) Idk what to do with that file.. Do I jus ignore it ore do I have to use that one as well? Please help, anyone :unsure:

    It's part of the game. The game was split into 2 files. Keep that file with the normal WBFS and you should be fine

    No there isn't sadly. It's so you can use the games on a FAT32 drive

    Actually he can but he's forced to format the drive to NTFS.

    I don't know, but FAT32 is probably the way to go anyway. The split files don't cause anything more than a slightly more cluttered hard drive, and even then there's not many games above 4GB to begin with

    No, I don't think its really important for me to be able to play GC games... And how do I know if my drive is formatted FAT32 or NTSF? I have kind of many games and backups on the hard drive, so i don't want to format it too much... ^_^

    Formating means wiping out everything from the HDD.
    So its all or nothing, atm its FAT32.

    You mean it doesn't show on a Wii Backup Loader?
    Its cause the map of the game should be Super Smash Bros Brawl [ID] and in that map ID.wbfs
    ID is the ID of SSBB, you gotta google that.

    You can't format it too much or less, its format or not that's why i thought you don't know what Formatting is.

    After the file is transferred, it says the game id and the title in red under the percent bar

    And all of the games I have installed or taken a backup of in the Wii Backup manager, is under 4G, while SSBB is over. And that is the only one I wasn't able to transfer. Don't I have to split it in two before transferring or anything?

    But if I put both files into the drive, and then open USB Loader GX on my Wii, wouldn't there be two disks there? How do I know which one to open if i wanna play the game? (same with ssbb)
