I need help installing my GDR-8163b into my Windows Vista 64-bit PC! Because i just bought two of them for $50 each an my PC won't recognize it??
Here is the driver and software page. If you were running Windows 98 or 2000 you would be good.
Everytime I burn an ISO to disk it is not visible. To clarify I use Imgburn to burn the iso. Afterwards I open up my computer and click on my dvd drive, but there is nothing on the disk. It is like I didn't even burn it when I know I did. Is there something I am doing or not doing? If this info is important the media I am using is DVD+RW.
Read through the whole thread and think I understand most everything. There are only a few things I am not sure of:
1. Why do we need RawDump? We can make images with ImgBurn itself, or any other program like it (PowerISO for one). The name of the program is RawDump, so I'm guessing it "dumps" the "raw" contents of the disc onto an image. Does that mean it copies bit for bit? It seems like RawDump is used only for Wii/GameCube disc imaging. I'm wondering how this program differs from any other disc imaging program.
2. Why does it take so long to make the image? You say 2-3 hours, Jesus! That's long for an image! Another way to ask this might be, why is the copy speed so slow?
3. Why does the image have to be 4,699,979,776 KB's? Does RawDump pad the image with bits to make it that size always? If so, what's the point? If not, are all Wii game discs this size? This part's confusing.
PS: The OP wasn't clear at all on why we needed those specific LG drives. I figured it out a few pages in, but it wasn't introduced clear. Would be nice if the first post was edited to include that tiny bit. It would save a lot of time for people, and prevent a good amount of those people from asking that question, to the seemingly annoyance of some others.
I know you need one of the specific LG drives to create the image, but can the image then be burned to dvd using any dvd burner?
I bought the LG GDR-8164b drive and recently tried to backup my Mario Kart game, it only gets 700mbs/hour top speed and reckons its going to take nearly 6 hours to make the iso, is this due to the drive itself or is there a master trick to make it copy faster?
