    Copying Wii Game Discs for backup

    Hey,

    I have looked around but I do not find any threads about ripping Wii discs to harddrive in order to burn them to a new disc. I have read about burning downloaded games, but not about ripping them. I have tried to get both my mac and my dell to even recognize a Wii disc to no avail. Any ideas out there.

    Thanks!

    GUYS It would be easier to tell the guy that only some reader/writers can read the wii discs the LG drives I think. so install the wii dump VIA the HB channel the insert your disc you want to backup and start the wii dumper it will give you a http address to goto on your pc where you then download your game as an ISO file depending on your internet speed it takes between 2/4 hours I only use dvd- discs to burn to at x8 speed hope this helps

    bazross1969 is right.

    unless you have a specific type of LG burner (good luck finding one) your best shot is to have your wii hooked up to the same network as your computer. Follow the steps listed here

    Its how i learned to do it. GL!

    Yep, I've used a pioneer 111D (1.29) without fault for all my Wii backups

    I have an LG reader but to be honest it was easier to download them than to mess around imaging them.

    don't skimp on the quality of DVDs thought - Verbs here.

    And just a tip, I had sticky labels on ALL my wii backups, but they started to give DREs to I had to remove them all (about 150) and it wasnt fun to do!

    They all work fine now!

    Yep the problems I had at the start with bad discs I now use TITANIUM brand (Im in the UK) 8x full face printable and print them on an Epson R285 if you use lables tha stick to the face of the disc you will have no end of problems inc your wii not ejecting the disc oh and by the way i burn at 8x with no problems at all

    +1 for Verbatims (I have never used anything else since days of old......)

    Also have to agree with the business about the sticky labels - It's generally NOT advised to use such labels on any disc played in a slot loading player. With printable discs and (dare I say it) Lightscribe drives/discs sticky labels should be as much a thing of the past as the RS232 interface
