    I've been told different things, by friends, by google, etc.

    Is there any way to boot my GC backups on the Wii? I've heard of things like 'sdgecko' but whenever I consult google I end up more confused than I was to begin with. Can any of you put it in idiot terms for me?

    So what are the barriers to running GC backups in a similar manner to Wii ones?

    I haven't heard of any serious experimentation being attempted on it.

    yes it could be done, the MIOS can be modded, its just getting they code working to boot backups, i think once the wii has 100% compatability working, there may be some looking into GC backups

    Yeah, you need an SD Gecko. It's just 5 bucks, tho.

    Sd Boot does have pretty poor compatibility though.
    And it has bugs with SDHC cards, well the ones I've tested anyway.
    I have 3 sepearate sd cards for my games.

    Apparently Wiigator got the backup loader to read GC discs, it just doesn't boot them yet.
