    Wii DVD to SD Dumper v0.1 released

    By emu_kidid








    [​IMG]
    A new (beta) Wii and Gamecube disc dumper has been released by emu_kidid, the creator of GCOS. This piece of software will allow you to rip a Wii or Gamecube game straight to a SD memory card inserted into your Wii in just over 1 hour!

    Note that you need some sort of SD card adapter for a Gamecube memory card slot, and a way of booting Gamecube homebrew.

    Thanks to Critical_Impact for the heads up.

    You still need a Gecko or a homemade SD adapter, eh?

    I think there might be 8GB ones out but you dont need one that size as you can split it up and dump the contents of the sd card once its full.

    So if the game is bigger than the sd card I just take it out and dump it on my PC's HDD and reinsert the card into my Wii after that, correct?

    EDIT: Ok saw Critical_Impacts post. Another question though, will the ISO's always have the exact size of 4,699,979,776 bytes when I've used this tool (and converted to ISO using RawDump 2.0)?

    From what I read about it previously, yes. The program can detect the size of the card and split it accordingly.

    I wonder how it splits it though... RAR files?

    I still don't understand, is this to let you play these dumped ISOs on the Wii itself?

    hot damn, I do not know why (my guess is because all this was kickstarted for me when an ISDN connection was godlike and a cable modem the stuff of legends) but I always like being able to dump my own stuff.

    @squall3031 as it says up there 1.2 hours, even with usenet at it fastest I would be hard pressed to beat that. Even then messing with parity files and the like which tends to want to happen (although I have not used usenet recently and I was using a crappy provider) is no fun.

    Oh and Scorpei's mem card to SD guide to save a search: http://ngc.scorpei.com/GUIDE-SD_adapter.html

    One minor problem: I still need a Wii.

    What i can gather, you actually make the dump of the Wii game, so you could copy it to a friends SD card or walleva

    I thought that way at first, but it appears that it is just to allow you to dump your own games from the Wii onto a SD card to put on your computer and make a backup DVD. Still pretty cool, in my opinion.

    Better than that five+ hour solution from before though, eh?

    does it take 5hrs to dump using Rawdump 2.0???

    I have an LG drive but haven't tried to dump a game yet. Damn that sounds slow.

    I think this is a really cool idea.
    Has anyone who has used it found any disks that dont back up?

    I wonder why it can't use the built in SD slot?

    That's because the internal SD slot is not accesable in GameCube mode [​IMG].
