    I don't know if this is the right section, but her it is. My friend is having problems with backing up Animal Crossing. He tried CFG and Wiiflow, and both fail. So then I told him to try and extract the files on WiiXplorer then compress them into an iso, but it gets stuck on famicom.arc every time. So then we tried to extract the files in the arc, but BrawlBox does not support putting szs files into arc files. What do I do to fix this?

    Just use CleanRip.

    He says CleanRip doesn't work and tells him "Error".

    It sounds like the disc might be scratched maybe? It's a very small game and it should be rippable with any loader or CleanRip.

    • Exact quote: when I load the game normally on the Wii it works ok and no crashes at all, but when it comes to the rip it doesn't work entirely or completely right.

    That doesn't mean the disc isn't scratched. "famicom.arc" contains the NES games so unless you're playing one of those the console probably isn't accessing the file.

    Buff the disc or get another one, I guess. You should be able to dump any GC or Wii disc without building anything as long as the disc can be read.

    Hey its me banjo's friend. Sorry that I can't type to you with my own account GBATemp is giving me problems making a account
    Anyway so about the famicom.arc What I did was copy all the files on the disk and saved them onto my USB I ignored famicom.arc because that file seems to have the NES games and it was not downloading it properly
    It doesn't matter I mean if we can't get famicom to download then that's alright.
    So now I have the files on my PC now I looked through a ton of videos on YouTube to find a tutorial on how to make a ISO with the extracted files I had
    None of them even worked :/
    So I wanted to ask you what program should I use to make the ISO with the files I have.
    Also can you link me to a video tutorial to the program you recommend thanks.

    My friend's decided to go ahead and download it as you're saying but he doesn't want to use a well-known site like that one, though he still doesn't like it. I also had a similar problem recently when ripping Lego Star Wars II.
