Thread: Fastest way to rip a wii game?

    Fastest way to rip a wii game?

    Hi I was just wondering if anybody had any advice on the fastest way to rip a wii game.
    I was wondering:

    1. Would it matter if the program i.e. superdump, usb loader gx, etc was loaded through hbc or not?
    2. Would it matter what cIOS I used to dump the game... I think cIOS waninkoko r17 of IOS 58 is the best as it has usb 2 support?
    3. What is the fastest program to use?

    I don't have one of the dvd drives that reads wii games you can hook up to your computer and my wii is not capable of having a mod chip installed.
    I just can't take this half hour + rip time anymore... PLZ help

    1. No.
    2. In Modern loaders and with newer ciOS no. Waninkoko r17 is very outdated. Use cIOS d2x v7.
    3. Your USB Loader would be the fastest way (USB Loader GX, CFG or WiiFlow). It'll take 30-45 minutes and rips the game straight from the disc onto your hard drive; done.

    It's the fastest you're going to get.

    Only dual layer games take that long.

    Yeah; my mistake; the last 4 games I've ripped were dual layer so I didn't think about that

    It might be worth noting that ripping from a USB loader won't give you a 1:1 ISO of the game. The fastest 1:1 dumper is probably Super Dump which will be about half an hour for single layer games.

    Ripping my original discs with a usb loader puts my games in the wbfs folder, on my fat32 drive, in wbfs format. Not ISO.

    edit-- and also only takes 10-15 minutes for single layer games. 25-30 minutes for dual layer games. Some small games such as Super Mario All Stars only took like 30 seconds.

    maybe it has something to do with my hard drive which use to be a 7200rpm now I think I've got a 5400rpm, but even then that shouldn't be the bottleneck you'd think that the dvd drive would defenitely be slower then that. Perhaps it's the fact that my old drive was wbfs formatted and now it's formatted to ntfs with a wbfs folder? would the wii be converting the game into .wbfs format which would make it take longer to rip? It's just that I really do remember games taking alot less time but maybe that was because all of the initial games were all small in size... oh well I think I'll just accept unless anyone can confirm .wbfs format to take longer?
