    Is it possible to burn Wii games through the Wii itself? I know you can rip Wii games from retail discs for backup loaders, but can you use a backup loader to burn a Wii game you have on there?

    There's no DVD burner hardware in a wii, so it's impossible to do.

    why do that, you can just hook the hd to your computer, then burn the game.. so waist of time.. an as above post, there's no burning hardware in the wii.

    don't think so, the usb ports on the wii are input only, not unless you are able to rewrite an make them input/output compatible.

    err ... what? I don't think so

    usb is inherently bidirectional
    is simply can not work in only one direction

    besides ... how do you think ripping games to usb works

    well then give it a shot. if it works it works. but to me it's a waist of time, when with a few steps an a little work you can burn the games on a computer/laptop. after the game is dumped to hd. yea it would be in a wbfs format, but then you turn it into ios format using wii manager, then burn it. done that to a couple of games so my kids don't fight their cousins.
