USB Loaders

USB loaders are the second iteration of backup loaders, mostly replacing the older disc based backup loaders.
The newer USB loaders have many advantages:
  • Near perfect compatibility with Wii games
  • More updates (newer features, improved compatibility etc)
  • Faster loading speeds (loads game MUCH faster than even original Wii discs, and definitely faster than the even slower Disc backup launchers)
  • Nice interface for selecting games
  • No disc swapping
  • ....

Note: Depending on your cIOS version, only one USB port on the Wii may recognize the USB drive (usually the outermost one).
Make sure to try out both ports! This applies to all launchers.
