    I've searched google and this website but get various older tutorials on google and not anything in particular from this site.

    If some one could point me in the right direction. If it's possible to load them from usb it would be preferred.

    No USB is possible.
    Only from disc, using cMIOS and a GC backup loader.
    Google both, you'll find em.
    And you WILL need a GC controller to play the games, optional, a GC mem card for saves.......

    That'll be GameCube MultiGame ISO Creator (afaik, v3.5.4F+ is the latest one).

    Shouldn't this be in the backup loaders section?

    Anyway, according to filetrip 3.5.4F+ is the latest version of the Multi iso creator (Link) and I've managed to get five games onto one DVD (with the shrink option)

    Also, how do you load games over sdgecko, isn't that what SD-Boot is supposed to do once it's relesed? (sorry if I sound like a n00b, but I don't have one, so I'm not sure what they can do)

    You got 5 games on a 4 gig DVD-R? Did you have to rip anything or does it affect playback or something? They run just fine?

    they run fine for me. The games were Mariokart DD, super smash bros melee, Mario party 5 and 7, and super Mario sunshine. I had to shrink all of them and then they just fit (4.69 out of 4.7GB)

    can multigame iso creator also be used for wii games? if not, what is there to use to burn multiple shrunken iso images of wii games onto a dvd-r?

    So I looked up info on the multigame iso creator and there are a lot of people claiming that the program creates the ISO's as PAL and that they don't work on NTSC. I have NTSC Wii. Also says something about burning to DVD5 and DVD9 which I don't know what that is.

    And how would you load each game from a single disc?

    Sorry for the questions but I only have 2 DVD-R's left and I don't want to waste them.

    1- Wrong! If a game is PAL, its PAL, if its NTSC, its NTSC, its not MAGICALLY gonna change it all to PAL! and even so, you CAN play PAL OR NTSC Gamecube games from the menu screen.
    2 - You load each game from a menu screen, which SHOWS you all the games on the disc, by toggling with the buttons!
    3 - DVD5 is a single layer disc, 4.7 GB. DVD9 is a dual-layer disc, which holds 8.3 GB.
    4 - make sure your using DVD-R's +R's wont play.
    5 - get a pack of 50 for $8.00 at micro-center!!
    6 - My Wii is NTSC also, it'll play PAL or NTSC, no problem.........

    First off you need to install the patched MIOS that comes with the Gamecube Homebrew Laucher or WiiGator's cMIOS. Next you need to use the GC Homebrew Launcher to load SD-Boot. And you're going to need an SD Gecko.

    1. It's not MISO and cISO, it's MIOS and cIOS.
    2. Read the last part of my post; you also need a SD Gecko

    Buy it from Dealextreme; it costs $3. Also, I don't think it's worth it until SD-Boot 1.0 comes out
