    I think an SD card would be much faster.

    Look how much faster Solid State Drives are compared to hard drives. A SD card is just a miniature SSD.

    249 rev17+ will always emulate bca by reading it from the iso header at 0x100.
    So if you want to dump the real bca data, you will need to use cios 222.

    In theory [​IMG]
    In practice SD cards are very slow.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sd_card#Speeds
    Usually SD cards do about 1-10mb/s, which is far less than hdd speed (around 50mb/s) not to talk about ssd (100-250mb/s)

    Someone needs to install an SSD in an enclosure to check out the performance ;-)

    Just to clear it up, BCA is not new and every retail Wii disc has data there. However, checking for a valid BCA is new. In any case, when loading with IOS249, Cfg can't use the dumped BCA so there isn't much use to dumping it in the first place. It's a pity Waninkoko didn't provide a special BCA method like Hermes, as this means we may have to patch the game images on the drive which is rather ugly.

    It would be throttled by the usb speed.

    there is no write support for ntfs, u may want to use fat32 which supports both read and write, and also supports other homebrew

    If I could afford one I would try it out.
    Even if the SSD doesn't perform at maximum speed it still should outperform a regular HDD.

    A USB Key is a solid state drive. Some have larger buffers, but the bottleneck is the USB, even if you have a SATA SSD, it still is limited to the usb throughput, which a USB Key can match, so between a USB 2.0 Key and a SSD in a USB 2.0 enclosure, I'm betting there isn't any difference on a wii.

    I get crashes whenever trying to load large games (such as Brawl) in the latest version of CFG. I'm using cIOS rev19 and a FAT32 hard drive - it appears to get stuck on files that are split in two (over 4GB). Any idea what the problem could be?

    I think WiiXplorer needs IOS202 based on 60 to use USB. At least that's what the Best cIOS Selection for Newbies thread taught me. Even then I had to set an option in WiiXplorer to mount USB. But since then USB is working great, today I just added a code for Metroid Prime Trilogy in WiiXplorer. Then you can start Configurable Usb Loader from WiiXplorer, rather convenient !

    I'm asking this question too: the word "FRAG" appear when the CFG boots up, maybe after loading the IOS 249 rev19 that I use for FAT support.

    I know that. But it was possible to dump this area and save this as bca file to sd. Since rev16 i see only zeros.

    FRAG means u r using a cIOS that uses ogzees hdd fragmentation code, it speeds up the loading of games.

    I think thats right anyway!! lol

    Any way to play a sound when it's done ripping a game?
    Also, is there a way to configure to turn the wiimote off while ripping? Saves battery.

    FRAG means that you're using a wanin cios rev that's >= 18 or you're using Hermes fat/ntfs. So yeah.
