    Can anyone tell me a wiikey game backup memory size? Like how much memory it takes up. example: 128mb.
    If you know the memory size for ANY game please tell me. (preferably mario because mario ownz =0)

    Also if you could refer me to a site with good thorough instructions on how to mod the wiikey into the wii, i would really appreciate it.

    I am sorry for all these posts at once, but there's so much to ask and so little time!!

    See that hole in your wall?
    4.37 GB for Wii games.
    1.35 GB for GC games.

    Some GC games can be trimmed to shrink them down. Wii games can't be trimmed yet afaik.

    Unlike PS2 games, they always the same size.

    Rephrase that question in to one that makes sense.
    You don't "get memory onto the wiikey".

    Sorry, I'll change the question to:

    On a modded wii, what is used for memory for game backups and where can I get this?

    You copy the games to a DVD, then play the DVD. The modchip only allows you to play copied disks, it's not a storage device. One Wii game per DVD.

    You need to do a bit more basic research before asking these questions. It doesn't sound like you even know what a modchip really does.

    I just started gaming. I heard the wii was really good so i went to my friend's house because he had one and i tried it out. It was great! Before the Wii, i didn't really like gaming.

    if you want to backup games via the wiikey you need an sd adapter for the gamecube memory port.
    then you put an sd card (pref 1 or 2 gb) into it (has to be prepared via pc first) and then load up the wiikey conf. disc and use the discdumper tool [​IMG]

    rawdump directly gives you the ISO too.

    And at least rawdump actually works fine. That discdumper tool always reports writing errors to SD on the second part on the ISO. Never had a problem with rawdump yet.
