    Dude, come on! Do you even look for an answer before you post? Because if you did, then you would've seen a whole thread on it on the 1st page! Waninkoko's DVD Dumper 1.2. It lets you dump games over WiFi.

    If you download my zip - and look in the Apps folder theres a file called Wii Dumper - put it into ur sd card in the apps folder there - The HOW TO in it says the folowing :

    Stage 4 : (Optional) Backup a game from the wii
    ************************************************
    1. Start up the wii and go to the homebrew channel
    2. Go to to Homebrew channel once again and select Wii DVD Dumper (This is by Waninkoko v1.31)
    3. Select Wifi Network Backup
    4. Select the game type - usually Wii Single Layer
    5. On your PC/Laptop , open Firefox (IE may give errors -10056) and type in the link the Wii gives you
    6. Wait 2-4 hours and you have a ISO for yourself (dependant on your wifi speeds)

    If you have Backup Launcher 0.3, then that most likely means you have a cIOS installed. That's needed for this to work, so that's good if you do. If not, google "patchmii" and download it from wiibrew. Then, all you do is load it up in Homebrew Channel, choose to dump over WiFi, go to the URL it gives you, and choose to download the game. This should take 2-4 hours (depending on your connection).

    If it's SSBB it's dual layer, if it's not SSBB it's single layer. [​IMG]

    Check the size of it on a PC - 4.7 gigs is a single layer - above is double - usually they are single

    Well you have to specify if its single layer or dual layer (step 4 in the howto) before you rip it to the pc hard drive. And since my pc doesnt read wii disks, i cant stick it in my pc first to see if its 4.7 GB or above

    Fat32 doesn't support files over 4 gigs, FAT16 I believe is 2 gigs, NTFS is some ridiculous number.
