    I'm just wondering how come when most people use Wii dump they dump the games by wi-fi? How come there isn't any explanations about dumping the game directly to USB/SD? If there is someone here that uses this method(Wii to USB/SD) can you help me?


    Thanks

    Any USB loader dumps to USB directly

    As does SuperDump I believe

    You can use any USB Loader too, you dump the game to your USB and then to your computer using any WBFS manager.

    /sarcasm Yeah, you can only dump one game, and then you have to buy a new Wii, because your Lense is broken.


    Seriously...it's "messing" with your lens as much as when you're playing a game (maybe a bit more, because games aren't always read during playing). Your lense will maybe not live longer, but it will still be long enough. And if you completely switch to USB, you actually save some lifespan of your lense.

    Edit: Added /sarcasm

    Details, details. What program are you using to dump the game. What is the error you are getting. What is your USB drive formatted as? I remember that I had trouble dumping games using rev14 and SuperDump.

    dumping a game is far less "damaging" that playing that game. you know that screen on wiisports that waits for you to press A and B before the game starts? the whole time that screen is showing, the game is reading from the dvd drive. pretty much any time there is music or a video playing, the game is streaming data. during a level in new mario, its streaming music. even though it is reading 0x8000 bytes at a time, it is still reading.

    by the time you play the game 1 time all the way through, it has read 100 times as much data from the dvd than if you had just ripped the game.

    Use pimp my wii to install anything thats not up to date, Cios, IOS, system menu, etc....
    Try both USB loader GX and uloader as well. Make sure your USB is formatted correctly.

    OR, use xflak's NUS autodownloader to spruce up your wii, works great!

    just wondering, this could be the case of that my usb drive isn't compatible to play the games. I can format it and dump the games, but when i try and load the games all i get is a black screen.
    Can someone tell me this could be it?

    i just found out that my usb drive can actually play the games but it only works when I find a copy of the game on the internet and download it. I've tried dumping and playing 3 games from my wii to usb and I get the same results(black screen). I've used superdump 1.3, SD/USB Loader 1.5, USB Loader GX, and CoverFloader and I get the same results. I need help please?

    I had a similar problem with usb, it ended up being the usb device which was faulty, try a small game like horrid henry or wii sports resort horid henry is only 75mb and wii sports resort is under 1gb on usb, if those games work fine then putting a say 3gb game on doesnt means that the usb device could be faulty
