Currently, the recommendation for loading isos Gamecube is NTFS partitions, but the release of the unofficial version of WBFS Manager 4.0 opens the possibility to load gamecube isos in WBFS partitions. Someone have tried it? Could you tell me your experience? If really is not working, we would have to use an NTFS partition, I could use it with compressed Gamecube images?. This will affect the load of the isos?

GAMECUBE FILE TYPES AND PARTITIONS

ISO WBFS GCM
NTFS ? ? ?
FAT ? ? ?
WBFS ? ? ?


HELP ME FILL THIS TABLE
Thanks

Many have had issues with modified / compressed / shrunk GameCube Images.

I would not TOUCH a WBFS Formatted HDD. Bets to use FAT32 or NTFS

A GameCube ISO fits fine on EITHER a FAT32 or NTFS HDD so feel free to use either. (They are small enough to NOT worry about shrinking or the like). Many use FAT32 and convert their Wii ISO files to WBFS format. If the WBFS file is still above 4Gb and they use FAT32 then they split the file in two and can still play perfectly fine from a FAT32 HDD.

This thread has info on splitting files: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1346 - not sure which page. Again - you only need to split files if they are above 4Gb in size and you use a FAT32 HDD

So, your recomendation is:
Use a NTFS Partition, with regular gamecube isos, and the Wii isos could be in .wbfs format. Is the best way?

There is no "best way".

What I do is exactly as you have stated.

NTFS Formatted HDD
Wii game sin wbfs format
GC games in iso format

Never had an issue and never have to worry about splitting files if they go above 4Gb if using a FAT32Gb HDD (Though if ripped via WODE it splits the files for you

Others have:

NTFS Formatted HDD
Wii game sin wbfs format
GC games in iso format

I simply find NTFS more convenient

I've been scrubbing and sparse copying gamecube ISOs to NTFS and it has worked well. You end up with the original ISO minus the garbage, compressed and playable.

I totally agree. I see no logic in using a wbfs partition. However, shrinking your Wii ISOs to wbfs format is definitely the way to go.
