    Hello, I remember around a year ago I used a homebrew app to rip a gc disc from my wii to my sd-gecko. I cannot remember the name... Is there any updated app that lets me rip both gc and wii discs on my wii and put them on a hdd? I'm searching but I am not coming up with anything... Thanks.

    GC games cannot be played on an HDD, but you can rip Wii games to your HDD through USBLoaderGX.

    No no, I am not talking about PLAYING .iso files off a hdd, I mean ripping (as in CREATING) .iso files from discs to storage, such as a hdd. I know usb loaders can rip wii games, but I am talking about a homebrew app that only rips wii and gc games and creates .iso files. Sorry if I caused any confusion.

    We know what you are talking about. Wiiflow rips the game right on your wii. Except it doesn't save it as a .ISO, its a .wbsf or whatever.

    What you are looking for is a program called "CleanRip".. It's the newest and best solution by emu_kidd

    Yep, cleanrip can dump GC and Wii images to your NTSF or FAT HDD.

    Superdump is an older and obselete solution, which afaik had some problems with giving a clean rip on certain cios or something.
    It think it was a bit slower too

    doesnt matter anyways, there is no reason to use SuperDump over cleanrip

    I suggest using something else (maybe SuperDump), as CleanRip still has a huge bug where the rip just quits in the middle. It doesn't happen with all discs, but it's a big limitation.

    So THAT'S why Twilight Princess wouldn't rip all the way. Glad I used USB loader GX instead.

    IIRC, that bug was corrected in r28 from SVN, but there was no binary release. Some days ago, I used it to rip Wave Race: Blue Storm (to test it with DML), and I didn't get any dumping problems.

    Maybe you guys could also test it? Perhaps I'm wrong and the bug just didn't happen to me, idk.

    Could you perhaps post a binary link for that (since you have one already) .. amd tell me some games that have this bug, and I'll try it out

    Well I've been using it for GC rips and 1 Wii game so far (Pokemon Battle Revolution) and it's been smooth. Thanks for the warning though, I will look at SuperDump and have it as a second ripping program. [​IMG]

    Well, I have tested it with most of the retail games I have (Wii Music, Wii Sports, Wii Play, NSMBWii, Super Mario Sunshine, Wave Race...). No problems so far.

    It isn't difficult to compile the binary, but here's it, anyway: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=5WURHK5T (compiled with DevKitPPC r24, libogc v1.8.7 and the latest libntfs and zlib releases). Hope it helps.

    I tried earlier but wasn't able to compile it. Thanks.

    Here it is uploaded to my mediafire account (I won't delete it) including a fixed meta.xml file and an icon.
