Is there a way to back-up games that I have so that if they get scratched I can still play them? I do not own a modchip and do not plan on owning one untill my warranty is done (for obvious reasons). I have a 30 GB External Hard Drive. I do NOT have an LG Burner on my computer. I appreciate any answers.
No you need a modchip to play the games. As for backing them up you need a "GDR" drive LG make most of them but hitachi make some as well. That is not to say other drives won't work.
The only way to play backup games on your Wii is to get it modded. You'll need a LG-8164b, LG-8163b, LG-8162b or LG-8161b DVD-ROM drive to copy original games.
Once you install this drive into your computer you will need to download a few applications... Raw dump 2.0, net Framework 2.0 and WinRar.
