    Hello everyone

    I have downloaded ISO images of the games I have to create backups, but would now prefer to use a USB loader. I no longer have the ISO's of the games I downloaded, so how would I go about creating an ISO of my backup discs? Alternatively if I am unable to do so, what is the next best?

    Yes, it's possible, I've done it loads of times.
    You have 2 options:

    - Rip them on your PC, via IMGBurn (Google it). Just click Create Image file and it will work.

    - Rip them via your Wii to the USB Loader. You have to have the USB Loader already installed on your Wii then, and your HD must be WBFS already.

    I thought it was possible with a computer because I'm sure I've done it before. However my computer cannot read the discs. Will try again though.

    Will it take as quick if I were to rip them via my Wii?

    eventhough your computer can't read the discs , you'll be able to rip them [​IMG]

    Yeah sure, and you will have them on your HD immediately.
    Do you have the USB Loader already on your Wii? I suggest you install this USB Loader, it rocks!

    Some WBFS managers can rip them as well (like WBFS intelligent gui)

    Not nessasarily. You can use this USB Loader (Configurable USB Loader). It has the capability to play from and rip to a FAT32 HDD. Bear in mind, though, that you need Hermes' cIOS 222/223 as Waninkoko's cIOS's do not have the FAT32 module.
