    How T0 Rip Wii ISO from Disc via PC?

    What's Up Guys,

    I am familiar with how to rip a wii game disc on USB loader using my Wii. However, I would like to be able to did it from my PC.

    Can I pop my wii game into my pc --> open WBFS or similar program --> Extract the file directly from the disc onto my PC, so I can then transfer the file to my Wii's external HD?

    If not, are there any other options to do this.

    Thanks in advance.

    Ripping a game on PC takes 2~3 hours, each.
    Installing a game into hard disk by usbLOADER takes 20~45 minutes.
    What would be your choice ?

    Wow really? I wasn't aware it took that long.

    one thing I did notice is the fluctuation of speed when ripping a game using the wii. While ripping marvel super hero squad for my son, there were periods where it was ripping quickly then it would slow down to a crawl. After about the 3rd hour it was only at 29% so I cancelled it.

    Does anyone know why it does this?

    I noticed this only when my drive is almost completely full. Not sure what it's doing.

    I "INSTALLed" the Wii_Sports, for instance, using usbloader, it took 15 minutes to complete.
    It's a very simple game.

    Run a windows disk check/cleanup on your external HDD - I had a problem ripping games to it at first (from the wii) - it would get stuck at a certain percent - but after I ran that...it was flawless. It takes a while, but it solved my issue.

    Rawdump 2.1 rips the data for wii disk at an agonizingly slow rate it also saves the file as a full iso I.E. 4.7GB's this is not the size of the game it's self as most wbfs games don't come close to 3 GB's and there are even some that are only a few hundred MB's.

    Rawdump was good for it's time but that time has long been forgotten.
    Now if some one came up with a new speeder method then by all means use it but wii+HDD+Usbloader is the fastest.

    INSTALL all your games into USB hard disk, using the LOADER, until the DVD-ROM die !
    Get it ?
