    How to make wii backups with a normal computer(LG DRIVE NOT NEEDED)

    Well I recently found this out(may be old news) but I found a way to backup Wii isos without using an LG drive.

    First you need to have MagicISO. I am using MagicISO version: 5.5(build 0276).

    1. Load up the Wii game and open up MagicISO.
    2. On the menu/navigation bar at the top click on Tools > Make ISO from CD/DVD-ROM.
    3. Select your CD/DVD-ROM Drive, choose the directory of the output file, and choose the output file format(we know it needs to be .iso).
    4. When everythnig is to your liking, click OK and make sure it is checked off at Make CD Image, and not Export Boot Image.

    This works for Dual Layer discs and I tried it with Super Smash Bros. Brawl and it worked with that.


    Later on I will add pictures and links.

    What drive are you using? I tried and no go. I suspect it may be the type of drive you are using.

    I tried (retail disk) with the drive that is my laptop and when i went to make the iso it said that it could not read the boot sector of the dvd... becasue the LG drives are the only ones that can read the wii data from a original disk.... and the backups work becasue they do not have the same encyption that the retail disks do

    Hi all

    I tried that and may be the game i downloaded is fake or corrupted as Magiciso will say "Can't find the file or file isn;t CD image file..."

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
