    I know that I cannot PLAY gamecube games with a USB loader, but can USB Loader GX read Gamecube games and back them up? I would like to backup the ones I own to the HDD and then burn them via the created iso.

    No, it just comes up as a 0Mb size if you try, and will not proceed.

    Thank you that one seems to work great, it took about 90 minuted to dump Super Mario Sunshine, I also found one called SuperDump which is said to be fast and work for Gamecube games but I haven't tried it yet.

    90 minutes is a joke, use 'img burn', it just took me 6min 43seconds to dump Super Mario Sunshine!

    you can't dump on a pc without a 'special' drive, right? or have things changed which makes the above post true?

    img burn is kinda dodgy
    dont think you need a special drive though.

    Is anyone planning on adding support for GameCube games to any USB loader?
    I certainly have a lot of GameCube games on my PC but I don't want to buy a ton of DVDs and burn them when I have a external HD for the Wii. :/

    Not at the moment, but Configurable USB Loader may add it sometime in the near future. It's one of the most requested features and knowing oggzee, he'll have a lot of time to try and implement it somehow

    Try Superdump. It dumps a GC game in about 5 minutes to Fat Partition.

    Original gamecube discs can't be read on a PC as they aren't standard.
    However burnt gamecube discs are readable on a PC.

    thank you [​IMG]

    and i thought loading gc games from usb was IMPOSSIBLE [​IMG] because all the wii hardware (usb ports) turn off/get disabled when it switches over to gc mode.
    or do they think it is possible to keep them enabled or something?
