    When you install a game (which you can only do by a disc), the backup goes straight to whatever you used to go to CFG in the first place.

    So you can't install games with a backup, no.

    If you have backups, just put them in a specific folder, like for .isos, put it in x:\iso\Game ID.iso.

    You can install backups, but what OP asked is if you can install with a backup.

    you can only rip backup discs to a usb-hard drive if the wii is capable of reading backup discs. But either way, WiiBackupManager has a feature to rip multiple backup discs in a queue... so basically you put in a disc, when it's finished it will eject and prompt\wait for you to insert the next disc, so basically I think it would be easier doing the ripping on a PC than on the Wii

    I am not double posting before you want to nick the jam out of my doughnut, I don't understand why everyone has so many problems with wiiflow, cfg, usb loader gx etc etc.
    I was once a professional noob but i only use wiiflow and I never have had a brick, all my homebrew apps work. However the .iso's have caused issues with games such as Scarface but to over come it i have just downloaded a new .iso from a few sources and eventually i get a good one, the game works fine. Before the Jews start quoting the fundemental laws of the 10 commandments number 8 thou shall not steal, I hit you right back with number 10 thou must not be envious of your neighbours goods. You shall not be envious of his house, wife or any possessions that belong to your neighbour. I do own this game but the disk has some laser burn and crashes at random so I have made a hdd back up via 3rd party as the children get hold of the disks. I am a typical lazy male i never put stuff away behind me.
