    Help with GameCube Backups

    So I have been poking around and reading up a bit, I understand how to actually get the launcher on there, and burn the discs and all that fun stuff. My question/problem comes in with this: How do I take my original Game Cube disc and copy that to a .iso so I can use the guides here to burn the multi game disc? I did a few searches and couldn't find anything on what I should use to actually copy the disc. Sorry if I'm being dense or just missed it, it's been a long 48 hours.

    I use USB loader GX for usb loading games to backup all my original copies of my games.

    For you since you want to use your original disk, you'd probably have to use your computer and RIP the files with a program, then burn the image with IMGBurn to your backup copy disk. This might work for you, wait for other replies to see your options though.

    Good luck.

    there are only 4 drive models that can read original wii/gc discs on a pc, or you can try get a GC network adapter or USB gecko. As far as i know, its the only way.

    LG-8164b or
    LG-8163b or
    LG-8162b or
    LG-8161b dvd drive

    Wii games are easy, you do it with a USB loader and USB HDD.

    I beleive the WODE can also rip GC from your wii to a USB HDD

    I'm not sure whats a good program to rip a disk. Maybe look on your computer for one or google for one. I'm sure there are tons of them available for download.

    you can only rip them on a PC if you have one of the drives listed above, any other drive will NOT read a WII or GC disc.

    If you put them on USB HD you can then move it to your PC and extract the image and burn it using any burner. That's an option if the goal is simply to back them up and you do have a USB HD available... you'd install WBFS on the PC side, of course.

    This does not work for GC games.

    you cannot do that with GC games, ONLY with wii games. And you use any USB loader for that.

    EDIT:http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...-homebrew.html Looks like you might be able to do it Via WIFI.

    I believe DVD dumper may also do it: 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download wiidump15.rar
