    I just acquired a game in .wii format. WBM can't handle it. How do I convert this to wbfs?

    .wii is the real extension for wii images
    its the same as what is usually and wrongly called a wii .iso

    It could be a very old ISO.
    One of the 10 first releases ? (maybe Raving Rabbids ?? just a guess. Some iso had .bin, other .wii, raving rabbids had .wii)

    These iso are scrambled (un-aligned for ISO9600 norm), they are RAW dump from a Wii game disc using a computer disc reader.
    You need to unscramble it using Unscrambler 0.4, and delete the additional data using an hexeditor.
    (version 0.3 worked better and didn't add the additional data, but I can't find it anymore on internet or my HDD. Someone kept it? for archive purpose).


    To check if your ISO is scrambled or unscrambled, you can check the file size:

    Wii single layered :
    -------------------
    If it's 4 699 979 776 bytes, it's unscrambled.
    If it's 4 700 012 544 bytes, it's unscrambled with unscrambler 0.4 which adds an extra 32 768 bytes to the file (JESUS release)
    If it's 4 736 698 368 bytes, it's in raw format and must be unscrambled.

    Wii double layered :
    --------------------
    Unscrambled : 8 511 160 320 bytes
    Scrambled : I don't think anyone ever dumped a DVD9 scrambled iso
