ISO and Nintendo Wii WBFS formats

ISO images are binary disk images of optical discs. When it comes to the Nintendo Wii, it typically represents an exact copy of the game. Many types of software distributions and backups use ISO format.

Wii is not a file extension; it uses a WBFS file extension for the Wii Backup File System format and is a Nintendo Wii-specific file format. This format is designed to save space by removing unused disk areas, resulting in a significantly smaller file size than ISO.

How to convert ISO for Nintendo Wii:

  1. Prepare the Wii device:
    • You'll need the Homebrew Channel, a self-updating homebrew application loader on your Wii. You can run unofficial software this way. 
    • Install a USB loader, such as USB Loader GX or Wiiflow. With this software, you can play Wii games from a storage device.
  2. Getting ready for the game:
    • Please ensure your ISO file is in the proper format. Wii Backup Manager offers the option of switching between WBFS and ISO.
  3. The transfer of the game takes the following form:
    • You will need a Wii backup manager on your PC.
    • Connect your computer to your storage device (SD card or external hard drive).
    • Select your device's drive letter and add the ISO file.
    • Transfer the game.
  4. How to play:
    • Insert your storage device into the Nintendo Wii.
    • Navigate to the Homebrew Channel.
    • Launch your USB loader and play.
