Step 1: Pre-notes
Please note that you will probably not need a 4.7 gigabyte storage device to hold one game. This may come as a shock to those of you who have messed around with ISOs for awhile, but a game like Wii Play is only 0.09 gigabytes. No I didn't mess up the decimal. The extra stuff that makes the ISO 4.7 gigabytes is sheared off and you get a cISO, or a compressed ISO. Wii Sports is only 0.3 gigabytes. Other games with more textures and story play are bigger, like Metroid Prime 3, which is 4.1 gigs. Supersmash Brothers Brawl is 6.4 gigabytes because the disc is dual layered. if you use a WBFS manager to copy over your ISOs you will see an "estimated size". I saw this size and almost fainted lol. my prediction of 25 games for 80 gigabytes of space shot up to 50+. I'm telling you this so you dont go overboard shopping for a 32 gigabyte flashdrive. If you have one of the older ipods with alot of free space, say about 10 gigabytes (you can do this with less, but i like 10 gigs), you could partition it off and store the cISO wii games on the Ipod itself! I will discuss this further in step 5.
