Known Issues

NTFS issues

NTFS was broken on versions 1.0.2 and 1.0.3 - but was fixed in 1.0.4.

Issues with modchips

When dumping GC Games, if you have a Wiikey/Modchip installed, make sure region patching is turned off, especially the "Full GC Regionfree" feature that Wiikey has as it will produce bad rips.

Wii DAT download

The Wii/GC DAT files from fail to download. To manually obtain these files, download the latest version of the "Datfiles, Cuesheets, and GDIs compilation" from Here. Extract the Wii and GC dat files. Rename the files to wii.dat and gc.dat and place them in the root directory of the device you will use to rip discs with.
