    That's not possible on Wii U. Sorry.

    Edit: Wait, I thought you were talking about dumping ISOs.

    but i dont think Gamecube games require ID's on my SD card i just made a folder with the gamename and the game.iso file in the folder
    EX:

    SD or USB:/games/Zelda Wind Waker/game.iso
    SD or USB:/games/Tales of Symphonia/game.iso
    SD or USB:/games/Tales of Symphonia/disc2.iso

    im pretty sure most games worl without it

    The only thing i could find after spending the last half hour looking, was a program called DMToolbox

    lemme try it

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    PS - I think USBLoaderGX automaticly find t he titleID from the ISO files doesnt it? because i just checked my SD card with all my GCN games and none of them had a Title ID but the Loader had all the gameart

    sorry for double post,

    but yeah, it made the folder name the gameID, and the iso was renamed to game.iso
    the only thing i dont like is that i dont know what game is which after a while, but i guess that doesnt matter.

    attached a few images i just took while doing it

    hmm, i dunno why but the NINTENDONT thread says not to use DMTOOL, lol just clean ISO files i guess, manually renaming isnt that bad, since there arent many Gamecube games

    So i just tried putting all my gamecube ISO's on my new SD card just to test for you, i didnt use any tools, i just made sure the file was called game.iso and it worked fine.
