    Any possible way I could directly copy Wii games without a special drive or dumping it over Wi-Fi? I want to copy my cousin's Pokemon Battle Revolution(I sold mine for Brawl) to a DVD for the backup-loader, just in case I want to play some day. Nero won't recognise it, neither will anything I have? Any special DVD copier?

    There isn't direct, but if you have a USBGecko then you can get the ISO and burn it yourself.

    Wi-Fi dumping hates me so I'm doing it over SD card. But I moved the first part to my desktop and put it back in and gave me an error and exited. [​IMG] Now it has to start over.

    And when I get them all how do I merge them?

    What exactly is the problem with the wifi dumper?

    and to merge, you have to do something like "copy /b part1.iso + part2.iso merged.iso" in command prompt.

    okay thanks

    DS Wi-Fi dumper doesn't work for me, I might have messed up on settings on the FTP server, probably same with Wii

    And would wanin' update his program to support SDHC? I have an 8GB not even half full. [​IMG] Hell of a lot easier!

    Waninkoko might update it some time to support SDHC, you'd still have to split it because of FAT32's file size limitation (4GB per file)

    Also, the WiFi dumper dumps through an internet browser, not a silly FTP server. Just make sure you don't save the iso to FAT/FAT32 drive like I tried to a couple times. It's possible to convert FAT/32 to NTFS on windows. (You can't do that to SD cards though, if that's what you were thinking. Only hard drives)

    ya, just do that as long as your router isn't really bad at blocking connections you should be fine. You just open up the ip it gives u in a browser on you're pc and it dls over wifi. Also, it is MUCH faster than normal downloads; I have Qwest which locks my real DL speed to 156KB/sec, and with the dumper I get a constant 520KB+/sec, took like 45 minutes to dumb SA2B, takes like 2.5 hours for Wii games, which is about as fast any dumping method gets right now.

    I also had problems using IE to dump a game, definitely try Firefox. Its so much less of a hassle to dump over wifi. Just type your Wii's IP address into the web browser (IE 192.168.0.101) and your browser should automagically add the http:// part and you should be served a nice pretty little HTML page with a "link" to the ISO in your Wii's disc drive.

    No. Wii games use a non-standard format. Blank discs and PC readers or burners designed specificially for Wii, are not available to the general public.

    You'll need to use special methods such as wi-fi, raw dumping with certain DVD drives, etc.

    It's not currently possible to simply make an ISO the usual way, like one could for a traditional data CD or DVD.
