    Is it possible to use your computer's disc drive, and use a program to rip a wii game to the computer?

    As far as I know, no. However, I use the USB Loader to rip the ISO off the Disc and then you could transfer it to the PC using Wii Backup Manager or WBFS Manager...

    There are very few specific drives that can rip Wii discs in PC, but it takes a long time I believe compared with ripping it using an app such as CleanRip.

    You need a LG8164b. I have one. Takes about 90 mins give or take. Works great.

    I am assuming that this also works for Gamecube games as well?

    I was hoping for a solution that would be quicker than 90 minutes per game (i guess it would be quicker for GCN since the disc is so much smaller) because I have a collection of about 600 GCN games which I am trying to back up.

    CleanRip works with GC games and is much quicker than 90 mins.

    CleanRip is excellent for Gamecube games, but it stops ripping Wii games when it gets to 85%. "Error: Motor has stopped". WTF? So, I use USB Loader GX for Wii games instead.

    Fortunately I am only interested at the moment in backing up my GCN games. Do you need a specific drive for CleanRip, or is any DVD drive able to do the trick?

    I just bought a GCN Broadband adapter which I am waiting to come in the mail, so if worse comes to worse, I can always take advantage of the exploit where you set up your computer to be a server for Phantasy Star Online and dump the iso to your computer through HTTP protocol, which takes about 10 minutes to backup a game according to a tutorial written by InsaneNutter at Digiex.net.

    CleanRip runs from the Homebrew Channel.
