    If not, and it can only be done through disc backups, would you please link me on a trusted guide if you don't mind? I'd truly appreciate it.


    Edit: I should add, through USB... Besides with a WODE.

    Yes, with DIOS-MIOS. But not a single game works correctly with that method... Anyway, another version of SD-Boot will be out by the end of 2011. This is the only solution...

    Sweeeet. Thanks.

    For everyone else interested, I found a guide: http://www.wiihacks.com/blogs/shadowsonic2...-dios-mios.html - Not sure if there's one on GBAtemp, didn't find one.


    The tutorial is apparently really long, but they're more fun that way [​IMG].


    Edit: it looks like it's been discontinued (No longer being updated), and... Nearly every game is completely broken... (List here: http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/DIOS_MIOS_Compatibility_List ).


    *sigh*... I guess I'm going to just play backups on discs, if this is the only solution.

    DIOS-MIOS is dead!....thus not a viable option.
    so long as you have a wii without the D3-2 or D4 drives, you can load through disc back-ups. just install a cMIOS (comes in .wad form and installs via any wad manager--can be obtained through Modmii, the modify any wii thread, or even the DarkCORP pack). once done, you can load through NeoGamma or, i think, even the disc channel....hope this helps.

    edit: did you just supply a direct link to a no-no site??? ...i think you did....
    edit again: thaaaaat's twice now....ur so getting busted....

    don't forget, any wii out now has the D-3-2 drive in it, it'll never play burned discs of ANY kind.....

    That is slightly misleading... Any Wii sold in the past ten months has a D3-2 drive in it.

    OP: There's SD-Boot, which will allow you to play GC games from SD.

    Well, now the most common drive on a brand new wii is the D4. [​IMG]
    Anyway it can't play backup discs just like its predecessor D3-2. [​IMG]

    I doubt that this is what you're looking for, since you're obviously too lazy to invest any money for pirating games. You would need an SD-Gecko for this, they're cheap, but still...

    EDIT: I'm not wasting GBAtemp's bandwidth with an comment to a question that get's asked each week, and could have been answered with a simple Search. Not to mention that you're linking to sites which aren't allowed here. Seems more like you're wasting GBAtemp's bandwidth. Your argument, sir, failed hard.

    I'm not going to spend $100-150 dollars & take apart my Wii to play GC backup games. I've already had 4-5 Gamecube discs scratched beyond reading or broken by my nephews/nieces. I have no interest in pirating games, so stop assuming things, it's shows stupidity.

    I already knew I needed an SD-Gecko, so if you're not going to offer any helpful information, please stop wasting GBAtemp's bandwidth.

    Thank you everyone for the helpful information. I'm going with disc backups, it seems the simplest way.

    Gamecube USB loading is dead, SDBoot is the only way forward it seems, Disc backups if you have a capable Wii are the best way via NeoGamma
