    Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to create an ISO file out of a 4 part gamecube rom, burn it, and play it on my Wii. Yes, the Wii is modded so I am already set up to play GC backups. I cannot find any torrents that have complete IOS's other than about two games. Can some one help me?

    Use John's gc tracker to find Gamecube Torrents. It's by far the best out there.

    Actually, I was trying to make a ISO out of a Rom. Is there a way to do this?

    just extract it & rename the extension to .iso instead of .gcm

    There are no such thing as GC roms because they're on a disc, which means its an image, which means its probably an ISO.

    Oh woops. .GCM=.ISO

    A rom? The gamecube doesn't use a rom It uses a disk therefore the game would be an ISO, GCM, or other disk image format. If you are using roms then it's for an emulator on the gamecube and not an actual gamecube game. If you are using emulators then It's not hard to make emulator dvd's to play through the wii. If the Gamecube file is a disk image such as gcm or iso then just burn it to a dvd disk and play away.

    Sounds like a multipart Zip or RAR archive.

    GameCube games = ISO = disc
    Wii games = ISO = disc

    GBA games = ROM = cartridge
    DS games = ROM = cartridge

    PSP = ISO = disc
    360 = ISO = disc

    I think that the Threadstarter doesnt really know the GameCube and assumes that it uses Cartridges. [​IMG]

    One or the other either way like above stated just extract the file from the first archive and you should get a 1.35 GB disc image. ISO or GCM. you then just burn that image to a dvd-r and put it in the wii and there you have it.
