    too many games?

    Using cfg loader with a 2tb hd formated in fat-32 and games in wbfs files.
    Only 100 games will show up in loader. Not sure if this is a real problem or
    Maybe i need another partition on the hd?
    Or is there another way?

    Piracy is not allowed here...for one its illegal, for two its against forum policy to discuss it. Buy your games and rip them with CleanRip, no one here will help you with any issues that arise otherwise.

    Never mind another hard drive works just fine!
    and the way you replied you act like this site doesnt already show you how to
    Install the software and get your hard drive to work with copied games?
    i had an issue so i asked?

    You should look at your program cleanrip, nothing clean about it, it will still help you
    bypass copy protection from the company that made the games, so how is that not piracy?

    There's a difference between playing a LEGAL backup (a digital copy of a game you own the original disc for) and an ILLEGAL copy (a game you do not own and did not pay for).

    Yes, this site shows you how to hack the Wii to play backups, but it isn't intended for the purposes people like you use it for. People like you who don't buy your games and just steal them online (yes, downloading a game you don't own is stealing) are part of reason Nintendo has had such a financial loss the last few years.

    As for your question of whether or not CleanRip is piracy, it isn't. It's what you do with it that determines that. Making a backup copy of your own legally owned games is part of your rights so long as you destroy the copy when you get rid of the original.

    Backing up a game you own with CleanRip to add to your PRIVATE collection is not piracy, backing up a game with CleanRip to distribute to anyone one else, whether for profit or for free, is when it becomes piracy.

    your program Cleanrip has code written to bypass the copy write protection scheme that Nintendo put in place because they dont care what you do with it "period" They dont want it copied in any way.

    Also I would be willing to bet that you have some SNES games loaded some where other than the cartridges, and have played them on another system other than the SNES. That itself is piracy, doesnt matter if you own them or not, games ripped to another format where the original owner is not paid for the rights is included in piracy and copy write laws. I am sure No one has sent Nintendo/Sega or any other company a chunk of money for all the roms they have installed.

    Actually, all the games I have came from their original sources (ie the game cartridge/disc I bought at the store). Here's the main point though, legal or not, piracy is against forum rules...you know that as I have pointed it to you. Accept it, don't get defensive and make baseless accusations of what you assume other people are doing...accept that you are breaking the forum rules and try your best to avoid doing so in the future. If the "no piracy" rule is unacceptable to you there is always the option of finding a site that does support it (I'm sure there must be some), WiiHacks however, does not support it. It is right in plain text in the forum rules.

    Oh, and last point, if you look it up you actually are entitled to an archival copy of your media so long as it is taken from the source (ie the cartridge or disc you personally own and not someone else's). The stipulation to that right is, like I previously stated, that upon forfeiting ownership of the original (ie, trade it in, donate it, throw it out etc etc) you must destroy the archival copy.

    Edit: a little citation regarding this matter, just in case you didn't believe I know what I'm talking about...

    ESA Policy (http://www.theesa.com/policy/antipiracy_faq.asp)-ESA
    Isn't it legal to copy computer and video games as a backup as long as you own a legitimate copy?

    U.S. Copyright laws permit making a "backup" copy of computer programs for archival purposes. However, the right to make backup copies of computer programs for archival purposes, as embodied in 17 U.S.C. Section 117(2), does not in any way authorize the owner of a copy of a video or computer game to post or download a copy of that game to or from the Internet or make such copy available to other people for their use. Section 117(2) only gives the owner of the copy a right to make an archival copy of the actual copy that he/she legally possesses, not to make a copy of the ROM that someone else legally possesses, nor to post an archival copy of his/her original copy for distribution. The law clearly does NOT provide any right to sell "backup" copies. In fact, Section 117 is quite explicit in stating that any archival copy prepared under Section 117(2) can only be transferred to another person if, and only if: A) The original copy is also transferred, and only with the authorization of the copyright owner, and B) The transfer is part of the sale of all rights in the program.

    look at my question, your arguing shades of gray. I have an issues with having my loader see more than 100
    games. I didnt come here and post about how to download them or from what site or where to get games for free.
    I asked how to fix the problem i have.
    you have hijacked my thread with a simple question into an
    argument. If you dont have an answer then stop creating
    problems and be a part of the solution
