Is this legit? Graingert

If you mean "is it OK by WiiBrew's rules?", I'd say yes. It doesn't enable piracy in any way, and there are a number of reasons one may want to rip a disc e.g. extracting files to modify for use with Riivolution, extract DOL to reverse engineer for exploits... --SifJar 19:43, 13 September 2010 (CEST)
I dont see why not either. Its better than being forced to use other illegitimate methods to get the files. Kind of like the wiibrew version of DopMii.--ChuckBartowski 02:20, 14 September 2010 (CEST)
Also, I thought of something else: If you're ripping a game, that means you probably own it, i.e. its not piracy. While backups in general aren't supported, that's mainly because usually its a euphemism for pirated copies. Thus info on backup playing is not permitted as it would aid pirates. This will not aid a pirate. Of course, there is the exception of ripping a rented or borrowed game, but I doubt many people would bother with that, considering it'd be easier to just download the game --SifJar 21:03, 14 September 2010 (CEST)
Fail! Preaching that "Wiibrew isn't about piracy" clear out all the brews that use "cIOScrap" because of piracy, and then allow a program to flourish that by and far is FOR piracy. Hypocritical to say the least. The program is useful, don't get me wrong but it not only flies in the face of Twiizers anti-piracy policy, it mauls it afterward just for sherry and giggles. You copy/manipulate 1 BIT of any game you have broken the copyright law as written. So, I re-iterate... FAIL! Blahvarious 01:41, 16 September 2010 (CEST)
I got a set of knives in my kitchen. Criminals stab people with knives. Does owning and using knives makes me a criminal? --Spec 17:26, 16 September 2010 (CEST)

What's the big picture? Being able to rip games to a USB HD is fine, but what can one do with the image? Vladhed 19:01, 13 September 2010 (CEST)

You could extract files and modify them for use with Riivolution or you could extract the DOL to reverse engineer and look for exploits. --SifJar 19:43, 13 September 2010 (CEST)

Wait wait wait wait wait - am I understanding this correctly? This program lets you view and copy individual files from the disc? --SandMan 03:48, 14 September 2010 (CEST)

Nope. It rips the entire disc to an ISO I think. What I mean is you can then use another program e.g. WiiScrubber to extract files from the ripped ISO, showing just one of this tools perfectly legit purposes. For what you describe, WiiXplorer is more suited. --SifJar 21:03, 14 September 2010 (CEST)

In Features it says "File Splitting (1,2,3GB or Maximum file size - use only on NTFS)"; why should I use file splitting on NTFS? Should that be FAT instead? Lukas227 10:15, 14 September 2010 (CEST)

You fail at reading. --Steffen 14:28, 14 September 2010 (CEST)
No, he's right. It's ambiguous. I'll change it now.  — SheeEttin 20:41, 14 September 2010 (CEST)
