    Hello been away for a while, just modded my friends Wii and he wants me to back up his GC collection for him.

    I have been using Waninkoko's DVD Dumper 1.2 and it takes a little over an hour to dump the game, I figured since USB Loader GX can dump Silent Hill (about 3.6GB) in 15 minutes maybe there was a faster way to dump GC discs.

    I tried to install it to a WBFS drive but USB Loader GX told me it was not a Wii disc and would not install it.

    Is there any app that will rip a GC disc in a few minutes or is DVD Dumper 1.2 still the best option?

    Thanks

    Since there aren't any really great ways to play GC games on the Wii (save from disc) yet... how do you guys play them? What media do you use?

    What speed do you burn at? (predicating the fact that you do indded burn them)

    whoa 20x is too fast. you could get better burn quality at 2x or 1x.

    not really
    If his burner supports it as well as the disc, he can burn as fast as he wants to
    The "slower = better" myth is false [​IMG]

    I even see graphics posted on gbatemp few months ago, with data quality check where media burnt at max speed had better results than reduced speed.
    Use there recommended speed for both media and burner.


    Although, I'm using 6x and not more, because of the clv (the burner stop writing, change spin speed, start burning again), instead of linear acceleration with constant burning, or constant spin speed but increasing data transfer.
    The burning type depends on the burner models.
    Clv, z-CLV or CAV should not affect the burnt quality, but I'm just paranoid [​IMG]

    When I first started I burnt my games at about 4x the slowest I could and almost none of them would load burnt at max speed never had a problem since, except for that one bad batch of discs I got but that was not the burners fault

    It is only false for some of the newer burners... The older ones (like mine) do require that you burn between 1-4X speed... (I can sometimes manage 6 w/o error)

    ok i see. like tj_cool said that better burn at low speed is a myth only. but for me i had burned all of my backup games at 2x speed and not even 1 game burned on dvd-r failed to load in my wii. all of my backup burned games worked fine.
