    You can't rip games with a PC. You need to use a Wii to do it. Do you have an external HDD or flash drive?

    I've ripped Wii ISO's from my pc though...
    BTW just edit the wii to disable updates [​IMG]
    You can't brick a wii by updating it.
    And it usually takes 10-20 minutes.

    Lol, yes you can. It's happened to a lot of people. Where were you when 4.2/4.3 was released?

    @OP: Use ModMii to hack your Wii, and updates will be blocked by Priiloader. It's very safe. Part of the process is making a NAND backup, which means you can recover from any brick that isn't hardware related.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    Actually, you can ripping Nintendo Game Cube with PC..

    Use a supported LG DVD-RW drive to back up Gamecube and Wii games using Rawdump or Friidump. [​IMG]
