Thread: Any way to Dump Wii ISO's?

  1. #1

    Us Any way to Dump Wii ISO's?

    Hello. I am wondering if there is a program to use to dump the image of a Wii disc besides RawDump for LG drives. My PC doesn't even see the Original Wii disc in the drive. I cant get it to read at all. I have burned over 15 Wii ISO's from the web. I scrubb them and then burn them. They all play flawlessly.

    Programs tried already:
    Nero
    ImageBurn
    RawDump
    5 star game copy
    Alcohol 120%



    What I want to do is (1) dump the iso image to the HD (2) Scrub the image (3) Burn it to a Maxell DVD+R disc....(all 15 games burnt to Maxell Discs)

    Can not seem to get anywhere with dumpig the Wii disc to HD in ISO format.What can I do.

    Thanks

    The reason your drive doesnt read the wii disc is because theres only a handfull of drives that actually can. the discs are specially encrypted so regular drives dont read them. If you do want to use rawdump, youll need one of those drives. they are rather old but cheap and easy to find on ebay. I dont know the drive model numbers off hand but google search "what drives can read wii discs"

    Besides buying one of them special LG drives, the only other option is to install a USB Loader. Once you install a USB laoder, you can dump a game to a USB storage device in about 3-20 minutes depending on the game. Then take the usb storage device to computer, put the ISO on your computer and burn it. The USB loader will scrub the image automatically. DVD +R or -R will work, but in the long run you'd be better with DVD -R.

    What stomp said and this may help but you need to format your USB hdd to a special type of partition to get it working with USB Loader. That and don't use DVD-RW discs for backup because they can sometimes come out with a bad burn in my experience. Either that or my image burner of choice had realized it life died.

    I'd really try to get my Dad's HDD, it seems good enough ( I run discs, not USB Loaders, so I won't bother with it much), so I'd just want to know what's the average time it takes for DVD Dumper v1.3 to send over a dual layered disc ( We all know what game I'm talking about, it's first grade).

    A couple of programs I've used is via homebrew is WiiHTTPDump. You can dump the image over a wireless network connection to your PC.

    The USB Loader is a good solution. Keep in mind that you'll need to format the drive to WBFS before you can dump the games to it so backup anything your dad has on it first.

    I got one of the LG drives that work a while back for dirt cheap, unfortunately they are no longer made and cost a mint on eBay and other places I've seen them. Go figure.

    As for dump time a single-layer takes about 2hrs 30mins on average. Never done the dual-layer one since I bought the original. Do the math ;-)

    Superdump v1.3 is a good homebrew app for dumping wii iso's.

    You can dump them via usb to a pen drive (8gb is best) in about 18 mins

    Only downside is that the iso is copied in two parts and has to be joined before burning.

    HDD attached to the wii is the way to go.
