    Pretty sure you cannot, how is the Wii gonna determine which ISO to play?

    There are tools out there that will do this, but they're all limited to 1.4GB due to the GC's mini-DVDs. We should see updated software or newer programs that will do this in the near future. I think a lot of people are wondering the same thing, I know I am, and as of now, there's no solid answer, but the consensus is 'No, you cannot do this right now'

    you will have to get a GCOS version for wii with an integrated file explorer and then you can play several games prom one disc

    You can create the a multiboot disc with gcm utility, upto 4.7gb.

    I dunno if there are any tools to allow the wii to boot them though (GCOS?).

    Does anyone know if the wii will boot gc discs that have had the garbage stripped?

    even if we can make a game dvd with 4 or more games
    the wii cant read it even in GC mode beacause the GCOS for the wii has no file explorer and a normal GCOS as a dol file cant spin the DVD by pressing any button

    so someone will have to add the file explorer to the GCOS for Wii

    with gcm utility you can do only 1.4gb, I've posted a version allowing 4gb dvds.
    still, we need a special version of gcos to boot them...

    as is said as long as noone will add a file explorer to the existing GCOS for WII it's not possible
    we will need it to select a game
