You don't need the LG drive to make ISOs/Copies of backups, only originals. And only a very few specific LG models work with the originals using the Rawdump program and that takes hours.

Ok here's what I have tried so far
1) I have an ORIGINAL game in the WII which I am experimenting with. I used DVD Dumper v1.2 and tried a wifi dump to my PC. Everything was going well however I noticed the download size was only 386M and it failed at 100% with an error (ret = -10015). Tried this twice (different game) and same error.
2) I have a 500Gb USB harddrive so I tried connecting this and using the USB option but this then gave an error mounting device and creating iso file. I assume this is a compatibility issue of USB device ?
3) I have read read different things about IE and Firefox causing issues but other people have said they have no issues, so I am not convinced IE is the problem for me ?
4) My SD card is only 2Gb but I have read that you can download the ISO in chunks, transfer them off the card onto the PC before getting the next chunk and then piece them altogether at the end....I have not tried this method yet...but if somebody knows if this is a good method please let me know.
5) The FTP method sounds interesting ...can somebody explain this or give me a link so I can take a try
I understand WBFS manager transfers it to the PC...
Sorry if this is a "dull" question but does this transfer a ISO file off your "WBFS drive" that you merely burn to a DVD ?
I haven't tried it, but I read here on the forum, you can use Nero to copy a backup by useing the copy disc function, even though your computer don't recognize the disc.
What 500gig HD are you using?

Download WBFS manager 3.01 and use it to format your 500gb harddrive from the PC.
Install USB loader 1.5 and cIOS36_rev10 on your Wii.
Connect your HD to the wii and load USB loader 1.5 and run it.
Follow the onscreen directions for what ever you want to do.
If you have any trouble with any of these steps please post specific questions after specifically spelling out what you've tried to do - what you've installed where - etc.
Taking the "shotgun" approach to the problem won't get you anywhere good.

This is what I did
1) Inserted a 5Gb USB drive in my Wii and used "Waninokoko USB SD Loader 1.5" to copy an original game to the USB drive.
2) The game then plays perfectly using "Waninokoko USB SD Loader 1.5" directly off the usb drive
3) I then plugged my USB drive into my PC and used WBFS Manager 3.01 to copy the game to my PC and ensured the ISO file was 4,699,979,776 bytes in size
4) I then used ImgBurn at 2x to burn this to a DVD
5) However when I then try to use "Backup Launcher 1.0" to launch the game I get a black screen with a lot of hex codes etc and at the top is written "exception (DSI) occurred"
My CIOS is rev 10
Please can somebody suggest what's wrong
try use wiigator backup loader 0.3 gamma
I tried "Backup Launcher 0.3 Gamma" but it made no difference i get the same error "Exception (DSI) Occurred"
What's puzzling me is that the game plays fine off the USB drive using "Waninokoko USB SD Loader 1.5"
So the fault is either
a) The transfer to the PC using "SDUSB_Loadder v1.5"
b) ImgBurn 2x (using Memorex DVDs)
I recently read about IOS Patcher 1.1 and applied this to my ISO and burnt another but this didnt make any difference either
I dont know if it's relevant so I'll mention it anyway
I have managed to burn/play Lego Starwars fine...but the game I am getting the issue with is WALLE...so is there something unique that you have to do with certain games ?
m8 just had a quick look on the net on other forums and you are not alone.
Other people also are not able to play wall-e from backup disc.
If you have done lego OK then you are doing nothing wrong. Sometimes certain games just don't work for some reason. Take me for example I spent over 3 days trying to get COD3 to work via USB. Turns out it wont work and no one knows why. Even if game is patched to 249 it wont work.
If its working via USB then make do with that.
Word of waring though I have been doing some reading on the net about this USB loader thing and some peps are worried that constant use of the USB socket to power your HDD could cause damage. I don't know what USB HDD you have but maybe something to think about. I power mine from a satellite PVR I have next to the wii.
I'll try and get hold of wall-e and give it a go myself. Let you know how I get on.
You guys have been so helpful...I have truly been so impressed with this fourm !
Ok...I am now going to try copying a different original game and will let you know how I go...
I currently have a backup DVD of "Call of Duty World at War"...can you make a copy of a backup ?
