    one of the interesting things about the gamecube and the wii is that Nintendo attempted to combat piracy by reversing the direction data was read. normally, a dvd is read from the inside outward, but the gamecube/wii read data in reverse (from the outside in). it might explain y there's no dvd playability with either system considering a dvd movie wouldn't be readable in that fashion. I'm wondering if the wii-u is the same.

    Uwizard, imo, is the best method to extract wii-u images. it has a nus downloader built-in. each game has a unique key to decrypt the wud. use this site. I'm not sure how to get the keys exactly.

    Uwizard uses discU. it's a gui for it actually. it also includes a sha-1 in a txt file of most games to determine if u have the correct decryption key too. :D
