    What's the impact on the drive itself though? I remember in the past that using the actual product that you use to play/watch to rip media isn't a good idea because it supposely damages the drive over time.

    They say if you gotta do a lot of them just get an actual drive, however if you're planning on just doing a couple here and then, then it shouldn't be too bad.

    hmm, do you need one of those SD Gecko things to do this?

    Yes.

    Good work emu_kidid.
    I hope he can also somehow enable transfers of saves from a standard GC memory card to the SD Gecko on the Wii.

    ...why? [​IMG]

    Anyway, so this thing rips Wii DVDs to an SD card, piece by piece. That means that with my SD card, I'd need 10 trips to rip a single game [​IMG]

    Either that, or get an 8GB SD card [​IMG]

    Good thing I'm not into ISO dumping [​IMG]

    Yes, they're infamous for it. Everyone knows reading a DVD is bad for a drive [​IMG]

    So this solution to rip a game isn't the best ?!
    But, if you want to rip a GC game, how did you do?
    You use a software ?
