    im currently using the same hard drive on both my 0wiis

    when i first moded my wii a few years ago the drive had to be wbfs

    then there was a way to convert the wbfs drive to fat32 which has the file size limit

    i never worried about it before because most my games are under 4gb


    i completly forgot about the limit and tryied putting pokepark iso 4.7gb on it and got the error (hard as hell to find that game)

    is there a way i can fix this with out removing every thing i dont have the space to back up the drive.

    also it was a iso and all my games are wbfs so im not even sure where i would put it

    I want to say yes but I've never tried it so I don't really know. I do know that Wii Backup Manager can transfer ISOs to your drive so I guess it can. I just don't know if the ISOs can be split like the WBFS files. Why do you want to keep it am ISO anyway? WBFS gets rid of all the dummy data making the games much smaller and they still work no problem.

    I think at least some of the loaders might support ISO but all of them support WBFS files.

    As Clutz450 said, just use Wii Backup Manager to transfer the ISO to your Wii HDD. Unless you changed any settings it will automatically create 4GB files while copying.

    Pokepark should be around 1.2GB after converting it to WBFS and Pokepark 2 is around 900MB.
