    I hope you have the originals for all those backups! As piracy is not supported at WiiHacks.

    Yes hope that you have the originals.
    You can rip them from the wii drive to the hdd as long as your wii drive is capable of reading the discs that is.

    so your old wii and original disc were lost, but your backup did not get lost huh....hmmmmmmmm. I guess it's a good thing they traveled seperatly OK we will assume that is true. If your pc will read the discs, you can use wiibackup manager to transfer them to youe hdd for the wii.

    Thanks for your help , And do you mean by "If your pc will read the discs" I should have these mentioned LG DVD drives in Guide: Creating & Recording .ISO files.

    or Are there any software tools that can extract ISO files from backup games and copy it to USB HDD regardless type of DVD drive?

    I know that you need one of those drives to read original wii discs. I am not sure about reading backup ones, it wont hurt to try. Wii backup manager may be able to read it straight from the disc and transfer it to your hdd.

    I smell something fishy...

    I doubt the pc will do it. The drives are quite rare.... If the wii is capable of reading backups then just use the usb loader to rip them from the disc.

    Sorry just saw your thread title.

    The answer is no then..... No software available....
