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.

    Yeah, it wasn't that bad. Say its average.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I've been listening to it last couple hours on repeat, its ok, abracadabra only good one really, and its just mid. You can tell Dre didn't do much of the producing on it.

    It's giving revival vibes tbh

    You need to unlock them via a keygen ofc.

    @SylverReZ, what a deal
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    2 games and 1/5 for free
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    That's why they're super rare now lmao.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    id has used something called TestDrive where you would select the game you wanted to buy, call support and give them the number on-screen, then they would give you a registration key to unlock it. Fortunately for them, the games were encrypted using some weak encryption cryptography, so somebody wrote up a crack to generate keys to unlock them without calling id. John Romero got pissed and left some unworthy messages on Usenet.
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @SylverReZ, so it still kinda
    counted as piracy?
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Xdqwerty, Well it was id's fault for not educating themselves before shipping it out. Always make sure your protection isn't reversable, but the 90's was alot different back then.

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Copy protection was straight forward, consumer CD burners weren't out until '96. Most of them used dongle or CD checks, nothing like SafeDisc or StarForce.

    all protection is reversable

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @The Real Jdbye, True. It's easy if you've got so much programming experience with how the protection works.

    I've cracked CD and dongle checks before, heck, even first time manually unpacked SafeDisc myself.
