    So I finally got a Wiikey and installed it on Friday. Now I'm eager to try backing up a game. Do I need to find a huge size SD card, or will the dump come out in chunks so I can swap out my card when it gets full? Like, can I do this with a 1 or 2 gig SD card? Thanks. I'd try myself, but, believe it or not, I don't own any SD cards.

    It will be dumped in chunks, so you'll only need a 1 or 2 GB SD card. But, I suggest using a LG 8164 dvd drive to make wii backups, it's just easier with it.

    That device can rip the games as an iso?

    Also, keep in mind it doesn't work off the Wii's internal SD slot. You have to get a Gamecube SD device, like SD Gekko. If you got that though, you could use the new DVD-SD back-up utility by SoftDev, over at TehSkeen. It is, supposably, faster than the older ones by emu_kidid.
