    Is there a program on the Wii that will allow you to dump original disc to USB drive?

    Many USB loaders have the feature included, I know USB Loader GX has it included.

    I'm using Configurable USB Loader.

    Any idea where the option would be for it in that?

    If I had an iso that I burnt to disc, will I be able to dump these to the HDD as well?

    Isn't that counter intuitive? Unless you don't have the .ISO or .CISO already backed up.

    Yeah. WBFS Manager, Wii Game Manager, among others. Look around and you'll find 'em real quick.

    EDIT: Assuming you're talking about ISOs/burnt DVDs that is.

    u need to have one of the uncommon LG drives in your PC to read retail wii games. If you want to copy games from a backup disc to USB, many backup managers can do this.

    I recommend wii backup manager.

    WiiBackup manager works great for ripping from dvd to the pc.

    As far as dumping them from the wii.....I have never been able to successfully dump with config usb loader, always get a code dump on both my wii's with WBFS partition yet everyone says it works, good luck.

    SuperDump can back up to SD Cards and FAT USB devices, with support for up to 4(?) partitions of the FAT32 filesystem ANYWHERE on the drive/stick. Dumping times about 30 mins for single-layer games.

    yeh what I mean was to use a piece of software which could copy my backups onto mu usb drive, you see I got rid of all my iso's they on disc now and dont want to use the dvd drive on the wii to transfer games to the usb drive, I would rather use the dvd drive in the pc

    also if possible does one exist for linux, I use wiithon but alas it doesnt have the facility

    try looking in the backup loaders section there's a few game managers for usb loaders some transfer games straight from disk to the hard drive

    or you could just make the ISO's with the app you burned them with

    The USB Loader worked a treat.
    Roughly 5mins per Gb of game, with some being smaller than I expected (NSMB is 350Mb)

    Main reason for transferring copied games to USB was so I don't have a ton of discs lying around and I can give the discs to my mates to move to USB while I can still play it
