    Nope, Wii games are like 4GB and SD card 4GB and above are SDHC cards. And Gamecube, prolly not either. Best best is to get a compatible DVD Drive for your computer.

    uhm.
    wrong.

    check out the guide called "Tutorial for back up Wii game using SD card" here.

    The download section of this site has all the relevant files as well.

    4GB, not 4MB

    and use the wifi dumper, it will stream the games to your computer which means no sd swapping (good for if you leave it on while sleeping, like me)

    just download this and install ios5 using wad manager, then run wiihttp on your wii, then on your computer (in your internet browser) type in the ip address that is shown on the wiis screen

    Thanks everyone! kutan, I'll use all my equipment and try that method. And mercluke, that sounds great! No netcat or anything? that sounds even easier.

    I'll edit later with results. Thanks a lot!

    Oops, I meant 4GB, I was sleepy. XD Yeah,I 'm pretty sure you can do a Wi-Fi dump, like the DS. And let's see the results you get!

    The Wifi dumper works fine, I've already used it to dump several GC games. It transfers the iso at a nice 400-450KB/s speed.

    If you decide to go ahead with dumping to SD and you have a SD Gecko the dumper on the WiiKey config disc works fine.

    Due to recent... "complications" it might be a bit of a while before I can get at this again.

    Hello to all,
    I'm a noob and will like to be able to dump Wii games thru the SD card . I got the files from kutan post and got the card formatted, but when I try to make the boot disc,the app apears for about 2 seconds and that is it, nothing happens, and the ISO is not created.
    Any help will be appreciated.
    Thank You,Marco.

    Make sure you've installed the custom IOS, 5 or 249
