    I'm new here and tried to find the answer to my question in other threads but couldn't. Just bought a wii that had homebrew on it but I have never used it before and have no help. I partitioned half of my external to FAT32 and downloaded and ISO of Mario Kart, but it is too large to fit on my partition. Is there a way to split the file to fit on FAT32 but still keep it intact to play on my wii? Thanks, and sorry if this is a re-hash of an earlier post!

    All help appreciated

    You can try wiiscrubber, but I don't know if you'll be able to get it under 4 gigs. Even if you do you'll find other games that you won't be able to get under 4 gigs. I suggest you get WBFS Manager and format the FAT32 partition to WBFS format with WBFS Manager. You can then slide on .iso's of any size (WBFS has no limit on file size) with the WBFS Manager. It's pretty self explanatory once you get the program. WBFS is recongnized by most, if not all USB Loaders. I recommend USB Loader GX. If you can, mark both partitions as primary, windows has its own partition manager. The wii, and homebrew are picky about this.

    Find wiiscrubber with multiboot here.

    Find WBFS Manager here.

    Find USB Loader GX (forwarder) here.

    Thanks a bunch Wiisell247, the information seems to be out there but it is 10x easier when you have someone to walk you through it. Had a couple more questions. So I reformatted my drive for WBFS and put on my .iso and tried to load it on the USB Loader GX that is already on my wii, but it came up with an error that said it needs to be unstubbed and I need either version cIOS 222 V4 or 249 v9+. I believe cIOS 222 is already on my wii as there is an option in it for my homebrew already, should I upgrade this and if so, how the heck do I do that? Also, what are the steps involved in 'unstubbing' the version I already have? Thanks again Wiisell, I owe you!

    Are you familiar with The Homebrew Channel and how to run apps?

    Sounds like you need to update your ios. You can use ModMii or, I like PimpMyWii
