    wha? how do you know its "possible"? For now it isnt possible to run any backups on the Wii, either Gamecube or Wii's.

    Although homebrew from the GC scene is possible, such as emulators and stuff.

    Could be possible since a GC backup fits into a 2GB SD. Could someone with all the stuff required test?

    You cant boot a GCM (gamecube image) from a SD card only a *.dol file (gamecube executable) usually the process is to boot the dol from memory/SD card, swap for a backup dvd then boot (or stream over BBA from a PC).
    there is no way to boot a GCM from SD. (yet?) although I would have though the Wii>SD interface would be to slow

    too slow... some games runs fine by broadcasting them on the gamecube. So it could work.
    But one has to reroute every drive access routines to sd, a bit like hd loader on the ps2. It could work because these routines where already retouted by the net loader. If it wasn't done before is maybe because it is too much bother.
    I don't think right now that major groups are interested in the running of gc backups, they are all focusing on the wii (playing tennis right now [​IMG]).
    If the wii scene is completly still for another 2 or 3 months, maybe some will make some gc backups loader to revive a bit the scene...
    My 2 cents, only guessing...

    But do the older methods such as Max Drive Pro work?
