    I'm trying to add an .ISO with wii backup manager but it just says adding files... and finished.
    Even though it says finished it hasn't done anything, so what should I do?

    You havent given much information.

    What OS is it running on. XP or Vista/7?

    Add an ISO, to what, how. How big is the ISO?

    More detail will probably = a resolution.

    what version of wiibackup manager are you using also?

    Earlier versions had a "ghost" transfer bug where it showed the game transferring but then when it was done there was no game on the drive.

    If the original iso isn't Wii sized (4699979776 bytes) then the backup manager doesnt recognise the disk! Even games that are smaller should come up that size when in iso format!

    Not really ^^^, you can add compressed .iso's/ciso's with WBM so the files size doesnt need to be exactly 4.7GB at all, thats just the size of the archived .iso when extracted

    @OP

    sounds like your adding the games you want to transfer to the games list and not actually transfering

    when you add the games you want to add to HDD via WBM it will add them to a list first then you must select the ticky box on the left hand side of the game title then select the transfer tab.

    I know that but that game isn't being added to the list where i can select the ticky box.
    It just says adding with two green bars that are 100% done already on the right

    what does the log tab say when its finish tryng to add, make sure the log debug level is set to full debug, that way we'll get a better idea of whats happening

    If iso file is on a share this sometimes happens.. Try moving the file elsewhere and retry...

    ps: Also check the space left on the drive..

    looks to me that its just a faulty DL/badrip, get another copy of the .iso or try another game and see if it does the same

    I've added a different game so I guess I can try another copy.

    Edit: the new copy worked
