How to backup your Wii games using Wii DVD Dumper v1 3 Zip?




To backup your Wii games using Wii DVD Dumper v1 3 Zip, you have two options: backup your games to your SD card or USB drive, or backup your games to your PC via Wi-Fi or LAN. We will explain both options in detail below.


Option 1: Backup your Wii games to your SD card or USB drive




This option allows you to backup your game discs directly to your SD card or USB drive without using a PC. You need to have enough free space on your destination device to store the dumped files. The size of the dumped files depends on the size of the game disc and the output format you choose. ISO files are usually larger than WBFS files, but they are more compatible with emulators and other devices. WBFS files are usually smaller than ISO files, but they are more compatible with USB loaders and other homebrew applications.


To backup your Wii games to your SD card or USB drive, follow these steps:


Step 1: Insert the game disc you want to backup into your Wii console




The first step is to insert the game disc you want to backup into your Wii console. Make sure the disc is clean and undamaged. If the disc has copy protection or anti-piracy measures, Wii DVD Dumper v1 3 Zip might not be able to dump it. If the disc is dual-layered, Wii DVD Dumper v1 3 Zip might not be able to dump it either.


Step 2: Choose the destination device (SD or USB) and the output format (ISO or WBFS)




The next step is to choose the destination device and the output format for your dumped files. You can use the D-pad or the Wiimote to navigate and select the options on the screen. Press A to confirm your choices.


You can choose between SD and USB as your destination device. If you have both an SD card and a USB drive connected to your Wii console, you can choose which one you want to use. Make sure you have enough free space on your chosen device to store the dumped files.


You can also choose between ISO and WBFS as your output format for your dumped files. ISO files are larger but more compatible with emulators and other devices. WBFS files are smaller but more compatible with USB loaders and other homebrew applications. You can also choose to split large files into smaller parts if your destination device has a file size limit.


Step 3: Press A to start dumping and wait for the process to finish




The final step is to press A to start dumping and wait for the process to finish. You will see a progress bar and a percentage on the screen indicating how much of the game disc has been dumped. Depending on the size of the game disc and the speed of your destination device, this process can take from a few minutes to a few hours.


Do not turn off your Wii console or eject the game disc while the dumping process is in progress. This can cause errors or corruption of your dumped files. If you encounter any problems or errors during the dumping process, try again with a different game disc, destination device, or output format.


Step 4: Merge the split files if necessary using a PC program or a command prompt




If you chose to split large files into smaller parts, you might need to merge them back together before you can play them on your Wii console or another device. You can use a PC program like Wii Backup Manager or a command prompt like CMD or PowerShell to do this.


To merge split files using Wii Backup Manager, follow these steps:



Download and install Wii Backup Manager from Wii Backup Manager Download


Launch Wii Backup Manager and click on "Files" tab Click on "Add" button and select "Files" option Browse and select all the split files that belong to the same game Click on "Transfer" button and select "ISO" option Choose a destination folder for your merged ISO file Wait for the merging process to finish


To merge split files using a command prompt, follow these steps:



Open CMD or PowerShell on your PC Navigate to the folder where your split files are located Type this command: copy /b *.part0.iso+*.part1.iso+*.part2.iso+*.part3.iso+*.part4.iso+*.part5.iso+*.part6.iso+*.part7.iso+*.part8.iso+*.
