    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?

    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!

    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.
