    Yes. It's possible. I did it. To play gc games, download (I am not responsible if you pirate)/rip them from the discs, then extract them, then download DiskEx. Extract it. Then drag the gc isos to the DiskEx application. A folder will be created in the directory your iso was in. Go to the root of your hdd and make a folder called "games". Drag the folder that was created by diskex into the games folder. Now download the Nintendont homebrew app and you,re good to go with gc. For wii backups, make a folder on the root of your hdd called "wbfs". Now install d2x in slot 249 with base 56 and slot 250 with base 57. Now download wiibackupmanager onto your computer. Now, to put the isos on your hdd, open Wii backup manager, add the iso, click transfer, then click wbfs, then find the wbfs folder on your hdd, then click ok or whatever the confirmation word is. Wait on it to convert and be put onto the hdd. Then eject the hdd, get a usb loader (I'd recommend WiiFlow because it's hot and sexy), plug the hdd into the wii, and now you're good to go with wii games.

    You don't need DiscEx for anything. Just put the GC games in /games/<game title>/game.iso" on your HDD. The second disc for two-disc games should be named "disc2.iso".

    example: "/games/Zelda Wind Waker/game.iso"
