    ..on the Wii with ease, I've seen people rip games and edit them to run as a Wii game would run via any ISO booter, so how does one go about doing this for your own backups or is there a special way to run Gamecube backups while they're in ISO format or whatever?

    With WODE you can run them from a usb hard drive. There are cMIOS's that will allow for backup discs to be run from pre-d3-2 wii drives. Other than that, there is no other software way to run GC backups.

    Where?!?!?!!

    Anyway, you boot Gamecube games by installing a cMIOS and then booting them with a Gamecube Backup Loader (Neogamma can also be used)

    Use neogamma to boot gc backups.

    cIOS stands for Custom IOS, Ioses are what the wii runs off of and basiclly tells the wii what to do (From my understanding could be wrong) The custom means that it has been tampered with (hacked) so that we can do what we want with it and tell it what to tell the wii to do,MIOS is basiclly the wii going into gamecube mode and wii mode gets turned off so anything wii related wont work (usb, wiimotes,etc) Which is why we can't make a usb gamecube loader without a hardware mod or someone would have to rewrite all of MIOS which would be a lot of work.

    Oh, that may very well be the issue then, as I updated to allow my wii to play off USB, and thought that was the right thing for gc, how do I go about updating the MIOS then?

    And to be sure I'm burning it right....best way to burn it? Is it normal for the computer to think it's mostly empty after burning?

    You can burn multiple gamecube games on one disc. There's a program that does just that but I forgot the name of it. If you burned just one gamecube game, then yes it'll probably be mostly empty. Ahh here it is: http://www.completesoftmodguide.tk/useful-tools/multidiscs

    So it should only have like 4 files and say it's using no space?

    Well if it's saying it's using no space then something is obviously wrong. A screenshot would be nice.

    1KB. And that's because you burned a configuration file for something onto the CD instead of a GC game.

    Actually that's not written to the disc, says ready to be written, and I burned it through IMGburn...selected the right iso...and ended up with that...right clicking the disc for info = 0 kb used
