    Hey Guys

    1) Simple question.. what are the ways to rip my original DVD's to backup as CISO and put it on my HDD??

    2) Also whats the difference between ISO and CISO and which is better for saving ??

    3) Also, I am using Wii Backup Manager.. Which is better to format HDD as? FAT32? or NTFS?? Also can I still use that HDD as normal storage while storing games to play on Wii??

    2.No such thing as CISO

    2) There is CISO.. check out Wii Backup Manager
    3) I am using Config USB Loader.. So use FAT32? I don't think I wanna use WBFS.. Can I still use that HDD to store other stuff???

    If you want to use your HDD for things other than Wii backups, I'd recommend you use FAT32. That way, you can have everything on the same partition, so there's no wasted space.

    1) You can use a WBFS manager to rip your backup games on your PC. I don't know if they can be ripped as cISO, but if you put an ISO on your drive, it will be automatically scrubbed to take less space.

    2) cISO (compressed ISO) will take up less space on your PC since it doesn't contain any useless data (like an ISO has). But as I said, once on the Drive, it doesn't matter much.

    3) I'd go for FAT32. Use Wii Backup Manager to format the drive and to put the games on it.

    When I put my original DVD on my computer and then use Wii Backup Manager and select Drive.. it just does not read it.. it ejects it..

    Also If I use FAT32 my backup Smash Brawl Backup is 8 GB.. will i have to split it? how?

    Yes, I said backup copy, you cannot rip original games through your PC, you'll have to use an USB loader to do it instead.
    Maybe I should have made that clearer as that was not really what you asked [​IMG]

    If you use Wii Backup manager to put it on your drive, it will split it for you. [​IMG]

    actually one more question

    while ripping original on Wii via Config USB Loader.. it has an option

    press 1 to dump BCA

    DO i need to do that? I haven't done that and just ripped via pressing A

    Unless you're ripping New Super Mario Bros Wii I don't think you need it (not sure, there might be other games [​IMG])

    No, currently it's the only one which needs the BCA. I'm still surprised that Ninty didn't add BCA to SMG2 as it seems...
