    Question USB Loader GX rip speed?

    Just wondering how fast USB Loader GX rips games for eveyone, my Wii got 6.2MB/s ripping Wii Sports Resort.


    I just want to compare speeds as my Wii is an early model, possibly a launch one.

    i think i got up to 8MBps, but agood 4 minutes passed until i got that.. at the beginning it was like yours.. Any way, 3x is the normal speed so dont expect great deviation

    depends on the game tbh, had rips that take 30 seconds, others that take 15 minutes.

    actually, time = size/speed so favs is not asking for the time which depends on the size, but for speed, which is a characteristic of the wii.

    Wouldn't you need a game that is over 4 GB to see what the max transfer speed is. It seems like the smaller games may not get to max transfer speed. Maybe everybody should use the same game so you have something to base your findings on.

    I say the same thing.
    Does the gx loader also scrub the disk.
    PLEASE SEARCH, READ, AND THINK BEFORE DOING ANYTHING.


    Don't forget the thanks button...

    Don't all the USB Loaders scrub? I know that GH Metallica is over 4 GB, scrubbed. I wonder if installing from original game disc takes the same amount of time compared to installing a burned copy?

    I found out the other day that when I installed GH5 from original game disc to USB HDD and then transfered it to computer and then burned it, the disc update is still there. I thought the USB Loader removed the update. Just a little info I never knew, sorry for off topic.

    Thanks for the info guys but could you also include if possible what disc drive your Wii is using as I would like to see if theres been any improvements to the read speed.

    EDIT: USB Loader GX dosn't scrub the games because when you extract them from the WBFS formatted HDD they're the exact size they should be.

    EDIT 2: With the WBFS Manager found on the USB Loader GX website it has 3 options, Paritions to keep: "Only Game Parition", "Remove Update Parition, Keep Rest" and "All Paritions".

    But when you view the game with GX and your Wii, can you see the size of the game on the HDD? I used GX a while back and GX scrubbed the game when it installed, and when extracting with WBFS manager it was converted back to disc size.

    My Wii is LU55, manufactured probably in Dec. 2007, I bought it in the first few days of 2008. I think that Waninkoko made an app, found HERE, that tells which drive is in your Wii.
