    I know the wii has a number of different applications, what are the number of ways you can dump, I know 2 already, pc > rawdump and wi-fi dumping, what other ways are there, I'm looking for ways to dump my originals.

    ok I've managed to use dvd dumper, I'm using it through wi-fi, however it doesn't dump the whole of the game, about 386mb of it, why is that?

    Might be because of your browser? Try changing and see if it works. It also dumps Via the Wii SD slot which i prefer over the Wifi.

    I've never tried Dumping over Wifi but i heard people saying that Firefox doesn't work properly. It might work for you or might not, you should try different browsers and see what works.

    I'd try FTPii. Recent versions support downloading individual files directly from disc, or downloading an image of the entire disc. You'll probably need an FTP program to use it, I'd try Filezilla. It's free and it works great with FTPii.

    Ive had 2 faulty dumps using the WiFi method on firefox. Of cours thats out of like 7.

    If you know how, set up a download manager to download the ISO. A lot more reliable. But make sure the settings are right for the download (like only 1 connection)

    Firefox works perfectly for me.

    It could be an issue with the wireless network, ie. a dropout or bad reception causing the dump to fail.

    For me, dumping was freezing about 50% of the time through my wireless connection, but I invested in a LAN adapter, and ever since I've had a 100% success rate (and the speed is a teeny bit faster).

    Could someone explain to me how they dump a game using ftp, isn't that for exploring SD?

    OK just tried with opera, still getting the same problem.

    BTW is there a chance that the USB speeds will improve with future releases?
