    wii flow or cover floader

    I ran through the 4.3 tutorial on the site the other day, all went through fine.

    I am now putting my games onto USB drive and finding the usb loader that installed with the softmod a little limited. I researched and found two options; wii flow and cover floader.

    Which do you folks here prefer? I just need to be able to quickly and easily view my games, maybe backup directly from my game dvd's instead of having to download (btw, how long does it take to make a backup from my dvd?).

    Why do you think your choice of loaders is limited? While true what format your HD is put in does have a bearing on loader type supported, you don't really spell that out. USB Loader GX, Neo Gamma, Configurable USB Loader, WiiFlow, Cover Floader, etc etc --- there are many. I do know USB Loader GX directly supports ripping your disc to HD (several others do not; some do). I believe when I ripped my child's Cooking Mamma, it took like 45 mins.

    It was USB Loader GX that I found limited not the range of loaders in general. The two I liked the look of best were WiiFlow and Cover Floader which is why I asked about peoples experiences with those two in particular.

    A lot of folks like WiiFlow, Ithian has a guide on it as well.

    Indeed I do. I ran through Cover Floader before I found Wiiflow and found the interface too slow/choppy. It may have changed since then (last year) I don't know, but it definitely wasn't my cup of tea. I was still interested in that coverflow-style interface, which then led me towards Wiiflow.

    From what I recall on the Cover Floader, development had ceased or has been in limbo. WiiFlow, OTOH, is very active.
