    As the title describes i want to know what the quickest way is? could i just dump them from the usb loader? Is it faster to do it on the computer or is that the only way to do it, by first extracting the iso from the dvd backup? what programs should i use?

    Easiest and fastest way that I know of is to just use your loader. I personally use "Configurable USB Loader" it plays and rips games fantastically and has a very nice view to select games.

    I think it's faster to copy the game to your computer
    with imgburn and then copy it with your WBFS manager.
    But it's only 10 minutes shorter and who wants to
    move his ass with the hard drive to the computer
    and then back to the Wii?

    ok, first download imgburn.

    place your backup in your computer disc tray.

    then press the [​IMG] button.

    choose your drive that contains your backup, then press the [​IMG] button to name and choose the location of your drive.

    finally press the [​IMG] button to rip the disc,

    then just use a wbfs manager to transfer it to your hdd.

    if you get an error of some sort, try slowing the down read speed a bit or clean your backup.

    note: that only works with BACKUPS!

    for those with originals you need to dump on/from the console!

    thanks alot everyone for the replies. i got a bunch of DVD Backups that I havent used since the USB Loaders came out and just decided to transfer them now, i'll try a program from the wiki and if it works well i'll just stick with that.

    I believe that wbfs manager 3.0 or intelligent wbfs (I can't remember which) can do this directly without need for the imgburn step.

    I just checked, it's intelligent wbfs that can do this. I haven't tried this function, so cannot vouch for its efficacy. It also claims to be

    able to do drive to drive ciso transfer and has never worked for me. Only wbfs manager 3.0 gets that job done.

    I just use USBloader GX to load them on my attached USB hard drive.
    This worked smoothly, and saved a step of having to load them on the computer first.

    Yes, this works. I transfer my backups to wbfs this way without the need to create an iso first. In my experience, the wii is more tolerant of scratches that it can read discs that fail on the PC.

    USB Loader GX dumps a game in under 5 minutes.

    Yeah, it also dumps games in 1 minute 30 seconds if you're talking about Link's Crossbow Training, or other small games. Games that range between 3-4 gb will obviously take longer, and SSBB takes the crown.

    Magic ISO only takes me 7 minutes to rip a dvd backup to my PC, while ImageBurn takes around 10 minutes. So I use Magic ISO, and then add to the drive using WBFS Manager 3.0.1. Using the Wii System takes much longer.
