    You do realize when "ripping" via USB Loader GX, the point or purpose is to install them on a HD --- right? In what way did it "fail"? Did you try other discs? This really doesn't say squat; oh yes, and version of USB Loader GX?

    Nightstah,

    I assume this was just an oversight due to the fact that most users have trouble with USB loader GX right? Haha , I had to read it twice to make sure he actually said CFG.

    Original Poster,

    We need more info as stated above. Also what version of CFG Loader are you using?
    Damn I suck!!!!

    If you are using NTFS then cfg usb loader can't rip. The same may apply to FAT32 drives as well but I am not sure. You really should have a WBFS partition if your going to rip. If the game is dual layer then you should try using cios38 rev19.

    No... First it is called cIOSx Rev19. ( As it can be installed to different Base IOS)

    Second, cIOS38 Rev 17 works great for DL Games.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    i dont know whats goin on i keep replying but they dont seem to post i know the page is having some issues today so ill apologize in advance if i accidentally post multiple times.

    allow me to elaborate...
    yes i have cIOSx Rev19 installed, i also have hermes cios 222 installed
    as stated above im using configurable usb loader current release 1.5 i believe
    my hard drive is formatted to fat 32 not ntfs
    the disc was clean and not scratched

    nightstah, i think you need to read my post a second time. im not using usb loader gx, and yes i am aware that USB laoders load and rip games to and from a USB device such as a hard disk.

    the question i was attempting to ask was: what file extension the usb loader rips images to? are they capable of reading other image files, if so which ones?

    the question at hand, im looking to find out if i can obtain these games in a format that the usb loaders can read. sorry if i confused anyone by prefacing that with the fact i had trouble with ripping a disc.

    also KRANK, thank you very much for responding to the questions i've had recently. you've been a huge help, quick responses and polite. thanks to you and MauiFrog my wii is no longer a useless piece of plastic. it took me 16 tries of using the smash stack method to load boot.elf (wii would freeze up when trying to access the sd card, which was the problem to begin with) but on teh 17th try SUCCESS! i was able to install bootmii to boot2 and nand program my wii. so thank you sir.

    Right on the money, thanks Krank. Yeah, I'm so used to this particular problem of late I missed it was a different loader. Still, the user at the time should have been more forthcoming with information, as my questions were quite valid.
