    Question Dvd Backup HBC app???

    This might be a stupid question but i figured it would not hurt to ask
    now from my understanding the wii has the capabilities to back up dvd movies is there any one that knows of an app or has already started on this project?
    if not i was wondering, would it be something that this community would be acceptable to using?

    I could be wrong but I don't know of any program that will let you rip movies with your Wii. People that are into playing movies on their Wii use their computer to put them on their Wii's SD card or hard drive.

    only the older disc drives can be used to read dvds - that is, once the console's modded
    just like darkcide666 said, I don't know of an app that'll rip dvd's to the hdd
    the wii can play the movies off of a hard drive or sd card tho

    I'm not the person to know how to make a homebrew app, maybe one day i'll learn
    somebody else here may know how to tho

    like I said before, to my knowledge, there isn't an application for that
    hope you can make it, cause that'd be another cool thing the wii can do, good luck!
