    Of course you can.

    BUT, you need HomeBrew Channel (HBC) and Trucha Patching at a minimum.

    All the USB Loaders generally also allow you to RIP your Originals.

    Or you can use a dedicated 'ripper', but dont know why anyone would, as you still need the loader anyway to play it. [​IMG]

    there are various ways to do it. I haven't kept up with the usb loader scene but most if not all the established usb loaders can dump wii games to sd or usb drive e.g. usb loader 1.5 but thats an old one. There's also the usb loader gx. I'm sure someone else can explain to you a more up to date method.

    Configurable USB Loader, and the GX one certainly can rip games to USB HDD/Stick.

    PS: Hard Drive (HDD) MUST be connected to the lower USB Port on the console.

    Its not... Words like dump or rip are inexistent. What seems evident to some people is not always. Luckyly there is very helpful people on this board.... try to google it also you don't always find up to date answers... my post WILL help someone in the future that will be looking for the same answer using the SEARCH button [​IMG]

    You can use an app called SuperDump to rip GCN games, or 1:1 copies of Wii games.

    no, they will never find it because the search here is retarded. You type something in and the first 50 results are the same thread. Pure garbage, I dont know why they changed it but it sucks

    Not sure in other loaders but in GX you can also toggle add/not_add the update partition. Which is good if you want a full rip.

    +1 on this one. All backup loaders won't create proper dumps ... this one will. Can dump to both SD and USB2. Works like a charm and produces dumps verifiable on http://redump.org.

    For best results use it with cIOS rev13b. Rev14-17 will not dump (particularly DL) Wii games properly. Rev18+ works again, but can't dump to USB2, since the program hasn't been changed for the new device name for USB2 in those cIOS:s.

    Check it out on http://www.gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=163598. Version 1.3, which renames the images to gameid automatically so you can dump several games in a row, can be found in the post http://gbatemp.net/index.php?s=&showto...t&p=2526897.

    What defines a "proper dump"? 1:1? Have you tried setting "install_partitions=1:1" in config.txt for Cfg?
