    I downloaded this off Suprnova.org, anybody try it yet?

    I burnt the .bin file, but I'm at work....I'm gonna try it tonight


    GameCube bootcd v.2.0 (USA)

    Da-Expert
    ---------

    This CD is for use with NTSC USA consoles only, it will NOT boot on JAP
    or PAL models.

    ---------

    First off about the GC hardware, or better yet it's media. Yes the
    games are mini-dvds (not CDs) which means the GC is actually a DVD ROM
    and as you guessed it can read CDs

    You will need to burn this bootable ISO onto a blanl mini-CDR, you can
    find the media at most places such as www.staples.com, generally these
    mini CDRs are sold for mp3 players.

    Now the second issue of what this bootcd does, currently it plays GC
    import games (defeating Nintendos regional lockout) and also will play
    non bootable CDR copies. Currently there is NO support for DVDR copies
    so you will have to RIP the GC DVD's onto a mini CDR and play it.

    -------------

    GC DVD2CD Ripping

    STEP 1: Copy all the files from the GC DVD onto your HDD.

    STEP 2: right click on the folder and see how big it is. You need
    to rip it onto mulitple mini-cdrs.

    STEP 3: You must seperate the game into CDs, create a folder and copy
    some of the files into it (to the capicity of a mini CDR) I think they
    are about 300mb so you'll be making quite a bit og folders and CDs !

    STEP 4: Do this for as many times as needed, it doesn't matter what
    data goes on what CD but it DOES matter that you copy EVERY file.

    STEP 5: With all directories made burn each one onto a blank mini CDR.
    I know it's a lot of work and uses a lot of those mini cds but it is
    the way to play copies

    STEP 6: Burn all of them onto as many mini CDRs as needed and don't
    forget to burn the GC bootcd to (if you don't have it burned already).

    STEP 7: Stick in the bootcd into the GC and turn it on. Options menu
    will come up, select "GC Copies (multiple)" and the screen will say to
    "insert CDR #1" the order doesn't matter just instert the cds and keep
    following the instructions until you have loaded them all into memory
    and it starts up.
