    That's correct. Rawdump is what you use to dump games. The only game that I haven't gotten to work with it is Brawl, but you need to use that other program to do it, I forget the name.

    What do you do after you use RAWDUMP with an original Wii game? I am having trouble having IMGBurn send it to a black DVD R disc.

    "To brickblock, or not to brickblock - 'tis is the question" -Shakespearean wiigamer

    Someone mentioned earlier in this thread,

    [in context] "Shouldn't we 'brick-block' all games downloaded just to be safe?"

    I understand that most games are tagged NTSC-U, PAL, etc.; however, wouldn't it be best to be safe than sorry and apply the brick-blocking application prior to burning to prevent ANY updates forced by the game?

    I have no firsthand experience on what brick-blocking would do to a game of the same region as your wii. According to the forums, there are no consequences for doing so.

    I haven't actually tried to [dL --> burn] a game yet as my wii is anxiously awaiting it's mod chip in the mail; however, I do plan on taking this extra step of precaution if needed.

    SO, experts! What's the verdict?

    There is no harm in brick blocking a game from the same region. Think of it this way, you will go to a store and buy a game it comes with a update and then you back it up the two are 1 and the same. I personally check all my games before i burn them just to make sure it the right region. I use wiu which tells me the region of the game and also what kinda of update is on it. For games like SSBB a update is required because it add dual layer support to the wii. So to sum up i would say check the games you get if your downloading but if you make your own backup then there is no need to brick block.

    I see. Thanks for the response.

    What do these in-game updates do anyway? How does it affect your console and what kind of changes does it make?

    Also, I came across this statement...

    "...don't use either either and instead remove the channels from the update or swap the updates with one of your region."

    ... in regards to which one is better wiu or brickblocker.

    What exactly does he mean by "remove channels" or "swap the updates". Unfortunately, there was no response from him.

    I'm not really planning on playing any games across regions, but it might be best for me to do away with these processes which can potentially render my console useless. I'm especially wary of all the malicious uploaders out there mislabeling the game tags and files.

    what he meanis some games like mario kart have channels that get installed so if you use MK from a different region the channel will not work, swap update means that you can use wum to remove a update from agame and put another one in it from your rwgion. the in game updtes just fixes issues and updates the wii with more features and such. newer games will need updates as they fix the wii firmware

    You are very helpful, thank you again.

    I see that these in-game updates are quite useful with enhancing the wii firmware. I wonder if it would ever evolve to detecting and disabling a wii system with a detected modchip...

    As far as the 'wum', the program allows you to 'swap' a particular in-game update that is not within your region with one that is specifically designated for your own region. Does the 'wum' program provide a database of such updates?

    Let's deviate from this subject a little bit...

    Concerning these 'scrubbed' .isos...

    To what I understand is that these are modified working game rips, but in a smaller size than the original rip. This is due to the fact that useless-filler information is removed by 'scrubbing', thus producing a smaller file.

    Will burning the game in it's 'scrubbed' state work as flawlessly as one with all the junk information put back in? Or, is it recommended that those who download 'scrubbed' .isos restore them to their original 'unscrubbed' state.

    well from what i know scrubbed isos are what you said they are and ther eiis no reason to unscrub them. Yes wum dos have a database for all updates and all regions. There is no reason to use wum unless its for brick blocking and region checking because the updtes can be download via wifi because they are one and the same
