    You can use ANY usb loader to automatically install to your usb.
    fire up your usb loader, with your usb in correct port, put the retail in the wii, choose "install" and your wii will read the disc and install to your usb device. Is your usb formatted to FAT32?
    Is there a folder on the usb called "wbfs"?

    Its cause ur disc is scratched.
    Clean the disc and try it again.

    Superdump is heavily outdated. Use CleanRip instead.

    Both of the Metroid disks are duel layered. Im guessing its stopping right before the layer skip. Make sure your version of USB loader/dumper is capable of doing duel layers.

    How old is your Wii? Some really old ones (or ones in houses with smokers) have trouble with Dual Layer discs. Used to be you could send it to Nintendo to fix (not recommended since you're hacked) or the other solution was to use a Wii cleaning kit.

    Try and play the disc and see if your wii can even play it. Wii Cleaning kit did not fix my problem with dual layer games, I had to replace my drive.
