    Making Back up copie QUESTION-need advice

    Hey guys I need some help. Last night I did the drive key mod and borrowed a bunch of true orginial wii games from a friend and want to copy them. My question is I want to copy the games to my sagate external hard drive and then burn them to my DVR-R's. Is there anything I should know, do, setting to make this work? I have the IMG burn program and know to burn at min X speed as possible.

    Thanks for your help I really appreciate it and need it!!!

    You could try plugging in your hard drive into the wii's usb port and use this:

    and if you want to dump it to your pc and move to your hard drive over wi-fi:

    [Shadow thanks for the help bro..
    Last night i tried with one of the games I own to just make a back up copy or store it to the hard drive and my hp external dvd burner drive would not do anything when i put the game in. So I was not able to copy it or anything. I have a hp netbook and both my hard drive and dvd are external...

    How does the USB port thing work? is it easy? can it play games off the hard drive if I plug into the USB port? Sorry man new to this and just need so guidence and it is really appreciated!!

    umm, let me think i never did this through a port only over wi-fi, normally external hard drives have a usb head to plug into ports just format your hard drive to FAT then plug it in and follow the guide.

    ok 2 questions and sorry if I am asking dumb questions but new to this stuff.. if you need to build you a race car thats more my field lol.. ok here is ? #1- if I want to save the games on my hard drive and format it to FAT or whatever will it only be good for games? my hard drive is 500g and wanted to use it to hold games and all my other files like pictures and documents too? or do I need to buy another hard drive just for the games?

    #2 Is there a way using the dvd burner drive to rip the game and save it as a file to my hard drive and burn it to a DVD?

    I do have the drivekey mod chip and tried to rip the game last night but when i put the disc in the drive it spun for a few seconds and did nothing else. I wish it was as easy as the ps1 mod and played all copied games so easy..

    1. Yes, you can use FAT Drives for everything else, FAT isnt anything new in the computer world, the only thing is you cant hold files larger than 4GB, you dump the ISOs into your hard drive then temporarily move it to the pc then partition drive so you have 400gb for NTFS so you can hold all you other files and 100gb for FAT to backup games from your wii.

    2. Only few LG Dvd Drives can read wii games.

    Yes it would be easier, to format your hard drive, plug it in to your pc (this is for vista and xp) then go to My Computer then it should appear, right click it then select format then from a drop down menu select FAT, then select format, just remember this erases all the data from the hard drive after that plug it in to the wii's usb port then follow:

    As for partitioning, Vista comes with a tool and there are tools on the web for xp and i think xp even has its own.
