    Hey all,

    I was wondering if there was a Gamecube Backup loader with USB support.

    No. It's been asked before. To play Gamecube games the Wii shuts down other parts of the Wii, usb being one. It would require some serious hacking to get around that.

    unless you mean the function of GX to read GC backup discs, then NO

    Nope, still not yet. Damn shame if you ask me.

    This is the only thing that comes close.
    Still, that's awesome too!

    Why does nobody ever suggest SDBoot and a bunch of 2GB SD cards off the Internet for $2 apiece, along with an SD Gecko for $3?

    Because you can fit like six GC games on a DVD-R (which cost about $0.10 per disc).
