    your main problem is the brand of dvd's u r using

    dvd backups on crappy memorex don't last long...nor will your wii laser or dvd drive motors

    Try using imgburn? Have it create an image file from a disc. create an ISO of your original(?) backup. Then burn the ISO using whatever you fancy to a new blank.

    That should correct whatever is causing the name change.

    Wat Bro Ossat was saying is to use ImgBurn to copy an ISO image of your Backup game instead of ripping it using Rawdumper. After obtaining the ISO, use the ImgBurn to burn the ISO.

    I read in another forum that someone tried and it works. I faced the same issue as you. I going to try it tonight and will update you shall it work.

    A lot of drives will not recognize the wii games. Try using a different computer if you have one. Or if you are that desperate for a copy you can use isodump. That will wear out your laser, but as long as you dont do it too much, you prob be OK. I found out that my laptop sees the wii discs but not my desktop, so I was able to share the drive over the network and copy it that way.
