    DVD Burner Question

    What is a good DVD Burner to read and burn original Wii games? I have read that only LG Burners read them to produce ISO of the original game. Should I buy a dual layer burner or stick with just the regular -+burner. Are any of the Wii games Dual Layer? Or is it a select few? What is everybody using for the dual layer games, such as SBBB?

    Thanks for taking time to answer.

    I believe the following models are the ones that can read Wii Discs

    GDR-8161b
    GDR-8162b
    GDR-8163b
    GDR-8164b
    (there may be a couple others)

    The following link has all the information you need regarding DVD Drives for Wii Discs

    Also USB Gecko can be used to back-up wii games.

    Does anyone know where to get these drives? I tried buy.com and others and they are either $45 or out of stock.
