    What do I do for the split size? My USB is 8GB, so I'm pretty sure I can dump the whole thing in one shot. What should I set that setting to? I'm dumping Mario Kart Wii BTW.

    Im lost......
    I would set it for anything around 4500 mb. On a side note i guess i used an outdated version cause i could never get the USB to mount.

    It either gives me this long error message or says that there's an error when mounting the thing.

    Keep in mind that FAT/FAT32 devices can only hold up to 4GB files at a time and nothing more. something around the 3800 MB range would be good.

    I don't think it'll even work with NTFS, and most drives aren't even NTFS compatible IIRC. I too always get that mounting error when I try to use a Flash drive.

    Well I shall try. If it doesn't work though, I'm giving up and just doing it with my SD Card.

    hey quick question about the dumper, how long does it usually take via wifi and are you able to stop/cancel the process half way through? and does it give you like a % of how far dumped?

    btw, do i need any cIOS to run?

    Yep, says unable to format. Oh well.

    EDIT: I formatted it actually. I'll try it in the Wii now.

    Just a question, but wouldn't it be a lot easier and safer to just dump a Wii game via DVD burner or something? Or is there something about this app that I don't know about?

    Usually around 3-4 hours for single layered games and 7-8 hours for dual layer. Yes, you need one of waninkoko's or wiigators CIOS' to use it, either one seems to work.

    ok thanks for the help ghost, and if i don't have a cIOS i'll just get an error, nothing bad right? and is rev06 of waninkoko's cIOS36 a good choice, or would you recommend otherwise?

    Rev06 should work just fine. It SHOULD give an error if it doesn't find a custom IOS.

    Edit: if no CIOS is found, it'll just go back to the HBC Menu.

    k thx you've been a good help. i can install the cIOS through the hbc, and i've got a european wii so no problems there, right? and you wouldn't have a dl link without having to go through waninkoko's page would you?

    last thing lol, am i able to see the % and am i able to stop/cancel the process without doing any harm.

    Yeah, you can cancel the download with no harm done to anything. You just cancel it like you do any other download. And my advice for finding the cIOS; Google is your friend [​IMG]

    Well, if it download links your looking for, I would just use this. It's the one used for wiigators back up loader but I was able to dump games with it. Waninkokos requires you to have an IOS wad which is near impossible to find on google and can only be found on a Wii disc. Wiigators downloads it from the internet. And the % of what?

    That's a modified version of patchmii. If all he wants to do is dump games, then he should probably just use the original (though I doubt it would matter too much). Here's the link for the official one: Patchmii. Download it from here, put it on your SD card, and run it (make sure you have an internet connection). Once that's done, you should be able to dump games easily.
