    Dolphin reads the ISOs and for Dreamcast use Daemon tools to create a virtual CD-Rom so you don't have to burn the Isos.

    I am very close to 100% sure that there is no emulator that can run all three of those. Dolphin can run I believe both GCN and Wii, but even with the best PC, chances are most games will be unplayable anyway. Chankast is probably the best DC emulator, and there's a good chance most games will be playable at least, but expect some lag and glitches.

    The downloads did not come with a boot.dol or any dol file nor image or icon. What do I do and how do I sort these downloads? Each need to be on the root and apps folder right?

    Er, those are for the PC, not the Wii.

    What -EXACTLY- are you trying to do?
    'Cause I think you got your terms mixed up.

    Why would you need a GC and Wii emulator for the Wii? You know it already natively plays those, right? Maybe what you're looking for is a flatmii. Allows you to play Wii and GC games without the discs. As for Dreamcast - Theres nothing out for Wii.

    I love reading all his topics, he makes me feel smart.

    Sometimes it seems that even he doesnt know what he's talking about.

    Here is what I am trying to do...... I am trying to get the Wii (NOT PC) to play DOWNLOADED Wii and GameCube gaems without needing to burn disks. I am not asking for a ROM site since I already have one and if that doesn't work I wil ask someone else since it's illegal to discuss it here. I am also trying to get the Wii to play DreamCast games. Wii being on Homebrew. Understand now? Dolphin and Chan can only be used on the PC?'

    The only way to play game without burn disk is to use an USB loader, you could use wiiflow or CFG USB loader for playing your wi "backup" games. For gamecube isn't possible to load it via usb for now and no dreamcast emulator have been made for wii.

    And finally yes Dolphin is a PC emulator that emulate gamecube and Wii iso.

    I can not begin to describe how noobish this thread is. And smashdude, this thread is way too unnecessary if you would have simply went to the wii hacking section, you would find an excellent guide on how to get your wii to play burnt disks or games from a flash drive.
    EDIT: In fact, heres a link http://gbatemp.net/t171901-modify-any-wii-4-3-below
    And if you want something even SIMPLER use this: http://gbatemp.net/t207126-modmii-for-windows
    As for dreamcast emulation, im fairly certain the wii is not powerful enough to perform this task, and no homebrew exists to do it.

    This is just hilarious. hahahahahaha, no sense to start a topic without specifying what are you really talking about. Like seriously dude, What really are you asking for and why you need it? Try to be ask specific as possible when you want people to really give you the answer you are looking for. Specially if you are posting here in GBATemp. You have to watch your post and why really you post it. I mean is it useful at all or it's junk like so many other topics around the forum. I'm not trying to be rude or anything like that, I trying to make it clear. I just giving you advice to keep you out of post like this one. DON'T GET ME WRONG OK.

    Why doesn't TT make a DreamCast emulator for the Wii? DreamCast was BEAST. So that Chan emulator is for the PC then. AND there is no direct PC emultaor (just commodre 64). I can only play 1 Hydro Thunder game (WiiSX) since Wii64 sucks and you said there is no DC emulator out yet.
