    Downloading games when you don't own the original is piracy.

    Ripping a game you own so you can store and run a backup is not.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    the point of dumping is to take a game u own and make a perfect 1:1 copy of it. a downloaded game is already dumped(and yes illegal). the proper way to burn a game is to take the iso image and burn it to a compatible media type using any program capable of performing that task. i recommend imgburn, its an excellent image burning software.
    My Wii System
    GC2-DMS Chipset - Wasabi Dx/Zero
    3.2u Firmware - HB Channel - Bootmii as Boot2
    Cios R14 - Neogamma R8B7

    LG GDR 8163b for backups



    Hit the "Thanks" if im useful.

    Question

    The only reason i came in this thread was to see what app was used for ripping the ISO...
    But now i'm seeing all this jazz about using specific LG branded drives?

    This seems like utter madness... are LG drives somehow different from all other DVD drives on the market?

    The LG drives you are talking about are not even manufactured any more. Just about the only ones you can get will be used. You would be farther ahead to use your Wii with a USB Loader to rip games.

    Will that be ok for my Wii drive, running it flat out for 3 hours or so at a time?

    Yes it will be fine, unless you've got a few thousand discs to rip.

    Lovely job, i'll give that a go shortly then.
    I'm still not quite sure why only those DVD drives work... doesn't make any sense to me.

    So i'm correct in saying... NeoGamma loader is there for loading games off DVD-r's, SD(HC), and USB.
    But USB Loader is only for ripping discs to USB and loading ISO's off WBFS formated USB drives?

    I've only been doing this a few days but i think i'm picking everything up pretty well...

    wii iso burning back up question

    1. Open the program and select "write image file to disc"


    2. Select your file


    3. Browse to the .ISO when the window pops


    4. Set your record speed and insert a blank DVD-R


    5. Hit the file to disc button.


    *** for Super Smash Brothers: Brawl only - set the layer break before recording ***


    Notes:
    - Record at the lowest speed possible. By putting the speed to 1X, it'll default to the slowest the disc and recorder match to.
    - No DVD+R discs. The booktype doesn't work well. Use quality DVD-R's only. (Verbatim works the best for me.) Also, no debates on DVD-R brands please. Any posts arguing Verbatim vs (insert brand here) will get deleted.




    If this guide helped you, please use the button on the thread. It'll encourage me to make more of these if enough feedback is given.
    I tried out memorex dvd-r for my wii back ups this time and they all work. I burned them at 1x with IMG Burner, burnproof was disabled, and like I said they all worked, but...some games like NFS underground had glitches in them while I was playing, like the road in front of me would not load quick enough and the game would pause for a second or two while it loaded. That wasnt to bad, but some times when I hit an area where the track wasn't loaded yet it would reset my car, like if you pressed - button, and that sucked! costing me valuable seconds in timed races, or even cause me to not get the first place spot, and made it extremely difficult sometimes to out run the cops. I also tried burning it at 2x and 4x but it still did the same thing. Also, on some games with high quality CG cut scenes like Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 and Trauma Center: New Blood those cut scenes would glitch or skip, and those are the good screens you want to watch. So my question is do I need to get a different brand of dvd-r because I noticed a post by some one a few before this one that said note to self avoid memorex brand dvd-r because they got disc read errors. So, has any one else burned a back up copy of Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 or Trauma Center: New Blood burned them at 1x with IMG burn with burnproof off with a brand of dvd-r other than Memorex and had the beginning high quality CG cut scenes play perfectly or is that just the best you can get with those games??? Any helpful detailed information would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!!! --ADNKC grog.gif
