    You installed the IOS, as well?

    If not, it's only going to read a small amount of data and stop.


    What speed is your SD card?

    Im having the same problem, im just doing a test dump of SSBB, set it to dump at 1.5GB chunks at a time, set to dual layer, and after bout 3 hours, only done 10mb... kinda the same as the nitrotux dumper.

    Is it maybe a flaw in the way it dumps? Because both dumpers have the same problem, slow dumping times...

    Like I said, what speed is your SD card?

    That's a factor here...


    EDIT: Also, you might want to try doing a full(long) format before dumping. Windows XP/Vista also like to put recovery information on your drives. Make sure to view hidden and system files.

    2MB/s? That's rediculously slow...

    I have a 2GB card that can do 20MB/s. I'll try the dumper and report back...

    Use HDBench.

    Just to prove a point, I'm running a test dump of Guitar Hero III right now.

    Steps I took are as follows:

    +Formatted 2GB Patriot SD card 40x
    +Dropped the DVD Dumper "boot.elf" into a folder and ran it from HBC
    +Set part size to 1664MB


    A 40x SD card runs at 6MB/s, which is the same speed as the DVDROM drive, so there's no hardware delays. However, I'm only getting about 2MB/s and it hasn't stopped once.

    It's clear there's a software issue, but I've proven it works, at least.

    i used the hdtech i got almost 7.2mb as the max read and 6.6mb/s as the average, looks like it wasnt 2 mb after all for me, and it was just the program

    Yeah... that's your problem right there.

    32MB will mean hundreds of trips back to the computer...
