    URGENT: Can I shut my Wii off while CFG Loader is ripping game?

    I'm ripping a game and it's been giving me read errors for the past few minutes and is stuck in the 40% range....can I shut off my Wii or will that corrupt my hard drive or anything? Is it safe??

    Thank you!

    I would advise against it. You would have to do a hard shut down, which would cut the power assuming it is USB powered. I don't have a way around it though. Hopefully someone else does.

    Not sure if it is safe, I have had some games that took hours to rip but was afraid to kill the power. Some of them worked, some of them didn't.

    It's at 54% now and is only going about 1% every 2 or 3 minutes if it's lucky. I really don't want to overwork the HDD or the Wii drive for 2 hours...if I did a hard shutdown it wouldn't mess up the Wii/HDD would it?

    If it is stuck, I am not sure what other choice you have but to shut it down. You might have issues with the current state of the harddrive, but it shouldn't hurt your wii console.

    You have 2 choices, make a decision and deal with the consequences. I would power off as I'm impatient.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Haha! I think OP is aware of that but was looking for some experienced answers! Not that I really had anything helpful to contribute either

    You think? Will wait for someone experienced in game rips failing next time

    I have done it before, nothing bad happened.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Indeed, I was...it's now moved about 0.3% in the past 10 minutes...I may have no other choice. No one has had to do this before??
