Hacking Is there a way to play image files (not backups) off a USB?

Every loader I see seems to want to perform a backup of a disc inside, which adds two extra steps:
1.) The process of burning the game
2.) Installing the game from the disc to the USB

Wouldn't it make more sense to eliminate those steps by simply click dragging the image file to the USB and then playing the game from that USB?

You don't have to install games in the USB-loader itself.
Try this one: http://gbatemp.net/topic/188295-wii-backup-manager-for-windows/

Basic usage:
Select the "Drive 1" tab.
Click "Drive" menu, select your drive.
Select the "Files" tab.
Click "Add" and select "Files..". Select your ISOs, CISOs, RARs, .wbfs in the dialog.
In the files list, tick all the items you want to transfer to the WBFS drive.
Click "Transfer" and select "Drive 1".
Done.

I can't conjure up words incredulous enough to represent my reaction to the fact that you thought you had to burn and then backup your pirated disks, so I'll be helpful instead.

Just use Wii Game Manager.

you burned your games when you have a usb? wtf! YOU know YOU CAN DRAG AND DROP RIGHT?
unless your playing with .wbfs files. Then you would have to convert 1st.

    If it has a USB port, then you could perhaps try connecting a power bank.
