    Question Question about back up methods.

    Hey there, so i've been searching around the net for a while trying to find all the different backup methods there are, and sadly about the only ones i have came across is using the dvd dumper program that comes on the wiikey v1.3 disc (i think thats what it was) using a SD gecko and then the LG drive method.

    sooo i decided to finally post, and i do apologize if this is discussed elsewhere, if it is just direct me to it please, i couldn't find anything.

    anyways what are some homebrew applications that allow you to backup your wii games. like say to the internal sd slot. or to a SD gecko. or whatever.
    i guess the better question would be to ask

    what program/homebrew do YOU guys/girls use to backup your wii and gamecube games using just your console (im not about to go and track down and pay for a LG drive xD haha)

    please respond to this, again sorry if this is posted elsewhere, Thanks in advance.

    -D

    You can use a usbloader to copy your games to a usb harddrive- very fast. You could download them from usenet or torrents.

    I think that ripping your games that you already have to a usb drive via usbloader is the fastest and easiest method.

    It does not have to be an lg drive, just the same device number- my 5 year old dell cd drive works great, but it takes about 3 hours.

    Probably an lg drive branded dell

    What media are you burning on? Have be successful with any other burns using this media?

    Try to burn something else, try different media, update your drives firmware.

    If your wii is softmodded you can rip games to a usb hd using the wii console with a usbloader, then you can extract them to your pc.

    I'm using a sony dru-710a burner.It burns anything off itunes like any music files it also burns movies fine but when it comes to this it just is not working.I would just transfer the iso to my usb to load on coverfloader but my memory stick is 4gigs and the iso file is at 3.89gigs.
