not to be a dick or anything, but please try your best to use proper english, in your titles, and your posts.

it would help us out a lot.

I understand there is no topic on this yet, so ill change the title, and you can discuss it in whatever context as long as it follows the forums rules. if you arent clear on these rules, please take a chance to read them.

As with the 360, the Wii discs will use proprietary formatting to prevent them from being read in a PC. The first dumps will likely come from disc swap methods to get the raw data and then it's a matter of reverse-engineering the disc structure.

I really doubt the "backwards spinning" comment. The same thing was said about GameCube discs but it was just a rumor.

I said this on the Wii updates site.
Disregard the first line, the mods at W.U. seem to have problems.


I did not want to post in the other one posted here because people read the first post there and leave.

Now my proposal is to use SDload to startup a gamecube linux distro, I'm pretty sure that the only ones downloadable from the gamecube linux site need some form of LAN port support.

So someone would have to make a minimalistic distro, all that would be needed would be support for USB mass storage drives, and the DD program.

You start up this mini-distro put a Wii disc in the tray, use DD to make an ISO or IMG of the disc, and save it to the USB mass storage device.

Bring it to a PC and see what info ISO buster can make of it, also find some people that are good with hex file structure info, and see if they can figure out a basic file structure.

That is my "basic" idea of how to start Wii hacking/Game dumping.

Wii cant do anything until wii figure out the file structure of games.

Thank you
