Yep agree, sucks that is rapidshare type links thou.

If your gonna download then download usb loader games (ciso) games smaller and can be expanded to fit a dvd if you dont have a usb HD attached to the wii

true, but if you use a program like "JDownloader" it will grab all the links and download them for you, even if you dont have a RS account it will queue the files and download when ready,

yes without an account it will take quite a few hours to download an iso but it is free

if he fancies torrents then look for "wiiiso" ( 3 x i's in this title 2 for the other place), if you do go for torrents remember you need to seed back, ie. you have to leave your pc on to allow it to give back the files, saying that if you use a site with PB as it title you dont even need to reg BUT always always scan for viruses

its a great program to let run over night, wake up to find your iso ready, then use imgburn another free program to burn it to disc

the best and most fast way i found so far is to borrow game from freinds, family and rip using imgburn or usbloader.
another way is to rent them from your local videobox and do as said above.

woody22, take your time and read the posts carefully, we mainly are pointing you to search via Google,
JDownloader is a program that is free,
wiiso is a site for file that you can us and also wiiiso is a torrent site you can use
my posts may seem vague its purely i do not want to post other sites on this board as it can be classed as :spam:

we can help and we will help, just maybe a little more reading and get used to the terminologies

The ciso format is generally a compressed iso meaning that an already compressed image file is then compressed again, but it dont stop there.

Most ciso files are small, not just becuase of the extra compression but also becuase all the useless data on the disk has been removed.

Take new supermario brothers game. Full disk is 4.3 gb size, when you get it as a ciso its about 350mb in size!!!!

Easier on the bandwidth.

Wii backup manager currently allows you to decompress a ciso to normal iso file.

Thank you

very easy to do m8 just find the imgburn progam (freeware) use google to find, install it on your pc, put the wii disc in your rom drive and click create image file from disc.

once you have your image file click Write image file to disc, Insert blank CD/DVD/BD (depending on image size!), Select a file to write by clicking on the 'Browse for file' button.
you should be looking for a *.CUE / *.MDS file initially. If you can't locate one of those with the name you're expecting, go for whatever is left! (probably a *.ISO file) when you have selected your file click the write icon.

im afraid you cant do this with an original disc only a backup and only a backup that has been written with imgburn, as nero changes the bytes so returns an error on the size of the image

you can back up an original but you need a different program and a special drive, ive got both but it takes something stupid like 3 hours or so just to read it and produce an image so only ever used it once,

two very basic ways to grab a back up of a game is either a torrent, a torrent is a collection of people sharing a file, so you use a program like utorrent to leech a torrent then you seed it back by leaving on your pc and allowing the file to seed back thus allowing someone else to leech it

the other way is to find links, but as there will be multiple links for a single game (assuming your using a free account),
the standard way is to click on the first link which take you to a p2p file share site you have to wait 60 seconds and then grab the link, it can then take an hour to download depending on the connection speed
once you have your first link you then grab then second link and so on, so takes hours, you either get a premium account or a program like jdownloader,

jdownloader allows you to add a list of all the files at once, the program itself then grabs the files as and when it can, as in after wait times,
still takes hours but you dont have to monitor it, ideal to run over night go to work and return to find a bunch of rar files, ready to burn

get jdownloader free from here

this is utorrent used for torrent
To view links or images in this forum your post count must be 1 or greater. You currently have 0 posts. i said before a famous torrent site with the initials of PB you dont need to reg so dont need to seed back but please do seed as much as you can, as others will want the game as well and if nobody bothered to seed back there would be no files for anyone

last little tip for now, Wii game are regional and region free, so if you have a PAL machine just go for PAL or region free games, you can grab NTSC or JAP but will need to patch them, (something to learn another time i think, not being rude) :D

dont be afraid to ask even if you think its a silly question, no private messages as we like to keep all discussions on the forum board so to help others in the future

good luck and happy gaming

sorry getting ahead of my self forgot about setup, yes you are very right apart from the time taken to rip never used to take me that long at all (some dvd-rom drives are faster them others) and the drive i used to rip is a LG GDR 8163B flashed with 0L03 firmware quite common and cheep but must fall within a range of dvd-rom drives.

tbh the pratice of ripping in this way is very outdated anyway i dont rip using my pc anymore i always use my wii and usbloader to rip games and using a hdd to play games means i dont need to burn games too. this faster then any torrent out their and you are less likely to get a letter from your isp for illegal downloads

costs a little more to setup but an ext hdd has to be byfar the best way of both backing up and playing backups on your wii.
