well it depends on what kind they are, if they are .rar files, or .001, .002 and so on files, you just take the first one, right click hold, drag it to an open area in the folder and click extract here. Then you should have the .ISO,
A .RAR in case you didnt know is a ZIP compression filetype. so once you have the .ISO file, you can burn it using image burn or something of the likeliness.
One reason they use Rar files (as I found out to my cost) is because the ISO's are to big to be copied onto older files systems (Fat, FAT32) as they cant work with individual files over 4Gb. I have a external hard drive for backups and as soon as you try to copy any of the Wii ISO's you get an "insufficient Disk space" message, so I had to spend ages recreating the Rar files lol
imgburn is awesome, somehow I tried burning on lots of different media and the ones that are supposed to work like shit, work perfectly here, never had any problems
Everytime I insert a legit Wii Game , my Macbook does not read the disk, and will eject it everytime.
I have a MacBook intel. Do I need to get some special drivers for my DVD burner? MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-857 - is the burner I have.
Anyhelp would be great.
yup you need a LG burner, the macbook drive cannot read a wii game, only the LG's can, they have the same encoding.
now if your trying to burn a game that you already have a backup for, remember that you have to have a LG drive to take a legit copy of a game and make an ISO of it on your computer (Estimated time 4.5 hours) if you already have the ISO lets say from a torrent site, or something that you downloaded, you put a blank DVD-R into the burner, then use IMGBURN which is for windows, I dont know if it is for Mac, but something of the sort to burn an ISO. and burn it at 2x or 1x. Also make sure you have a modded Wii, you need to have a modchip in order for this to work. :)
thanks for the help. I usually use toast titanium to burn iso files. It seems to work. Brutal that my macbook dvd burner wont work...
yhea i just got a macbook pro for school, but I still use my xp at home for iso and stuff.
I had exactly the same problem. After playing for several days without any problem, my Super Mario Galaxy backup just woudn´t load, returning the same message as yours. I´ve burnt it on a sony DVD-r 4.7Gb accucore 16x, using ImgBurn at 4x speed. I´ve also have a Wii NTSC-USA with wiikey 1.9g.

I´ll try burning next games at 2x and see how they behave.
Before you burn the ISO, dont you think you should use a region fix proggie or Brickblocker first on it? I know most games you download are designated NTSC or PAL, but, better safe than sorry!!!!
Thanks alot. Iam new to this and this info is very helpful.
