    Out of all the ones that are available which one has the best compatibility. I want to use a backup loader that uses DVD disks but if I were to do so would I need DVD-R or +R? I heard either works fine but is one better than the other?

    Is WiiGator's Backup launcher reliable? I believe the last update for it was 2 years ago.

    If you not able to read the headlines of the sticky (first themes) of this forum or to use the the find function of your browser, how will you install NeoGamma and the needed cIOS?
    And If I see the time between my answer and yours I know that you haven't really try it.

    Swiss lets you load games from a SD Gecko (Gamecube memory card to SD/SDHC adapter) and seems to work well. I think it also supports disc loading. Note that you will need to put both swiss.dol and the Wii Swiss Loader on the SD Gecko and run it from there as loading Swiss from the front SD didn't work right (no SD Gecko access if the SD Gecko is in Slot 2, and many games require the regular memory card you save on to be in slot 1).

    Swiss does support disc loading, retail discs on Wii and retail&backup discs on an actual GC.
