    theres a way, but im not entirely sure how. you need a broadband adapter and Phantasy Starr Online. You can then view the GC via FTP and you just drag the files over. just like backing up Xbox games. IIRC. infact everything past "Online." is from the muffled up part of my memory

    Here is a link to a Gamecube ISO ripper and loader for mac:

    You do need Phantasy Star (the original version which you can buy on ebay) and a broadband adapter to run the ripper app.
    It maybe possible to rip the game another way but I think it requires installing a modchip and you still need a broadband adapter.

    I'm not really sure. Maybe you can burn the ripper program on a dvd and run it on the gamecube, the problem is that I don't know how you would actually get the data using this method onto the mac.
    I don't have a modchip myself so i don't know anything about using it to back up games.
    I found a forum, where someone asked a similar question:

    Maybe this will help.
    Good luck.

    No. PSO Loaders are the old way of doing it, but now that there are modchips, you don't need to. However, getting those 8cm disks can be a pain and they're usually waaaay overpriced, which I why I'd recommend the Viper, as it has that bigger case so you can run standard DVDs

    That's what I have.... I have a Qoob SX (1.3c bios) with a Viper case to use the regular sized DVD-R's...

    But I still wanna learn how to back-up my original games....
