    No, you can only play your backups from DVD.

    There's the homebrew for USB Mass Storage, but it doesn't do much.

    I find it funny that so many people are worried about an ISO loader saying it will kill the Wii. Like over 50% of those people already have a modchip, and I'm sure atleast half of the rest have some kind of pirated VC game, be it injected or a proper release.

    Lets check the facts.
    GC - ISO Loader
    PS2 - ISO Loader
    Xbox - ISO Loader
    PSP - ISO Loader

    Hell even the DS and GBA allow you to boot Images of retail games with a hardware modification.

    And the PSP is the only system that seemed hurt from it, although it never sold well to begin with, and since M33 firmware they have been selling more PSP units then ever, just less games.

    For crying out loud, Nintendo makes money on every Wii sold unlike most consoles. Wii Pirating isnt even hurting them the slightest..

    A Flashcart is not a hardware modification.

    Well he is the one coding it and if he does not want his app to be used to load isos and he sticks with fat32 to have the 4 gb limit, you have to respect his wish [​IMG]
