    i'm having difficulties trying to get this to work. i want to get Skyward Sword backed up on my hard drive, i think i'm on latest version of Wiiflow (beta 4.2.2-r1076). any time i try to rip the game through wiiflow, the installation runs for about 5 seconds and says completed, only thing showing up is a single file that's barely 2 megs. is there anything else i should try to do and get the backup going?

    that's what it does for me - it's currently broken for installing wii games. i don't know the last version of wiiflow that it worked. in the mean time use cleanrip or try usbloader gx.

    cleanrip seemed to work, but it gave me a bunch of .iso chunks, and i have no idea how to use those (unless maybe just rename the extension to wbfs?). just now tried usb loader gx, and it can't even detect the games i have. even though it claims to have mounted my external, i can't get into it

    Edit: well, looking stuff up, figured out what to do with cleanrip, and the game launched fine. would like to mark the post as solved, but seems we don't have that option
