When dumping through the usb loader on the Wii, if the speed seems slow press the eject button. It does not eject the disk, but starts it spinning again and will speed up the dump process! Try it and give feedback. It has worked on two disks for me: WWE Smackdown! vs. Raw, and Sam and Max Season one. Seemed frozen or very slow(.01% per minute) and hitting eject made 1.46:58 dump in less than 5 minuites. (I am using a WD My Book 500GB ext drive) Edit: This only seems to work for a frozen dump, otherwise it will result in a bad dump to your HDD.
