    I am assuming you already have your console modded. Also you cant just pop a wii game into your dvd drive and copy it. You need one of the specially made drives that are able to read the discs. Then you need rawdump to dump the game onto your pc and then use imgburn to burn the iso file (game). And since your using dvd+r, youll need to change their booktype to dvd rom or your wii wont read them.
    If I have helped you in any way, please thank me by pressing the little thanks button.

    I beleive the drives are LG drives, I'm not 100% sure. But I also believe you can dump games to your PC through WiFi from your Wii. You may have to do some research on it, but if it saves you from buying a special drive to do it, then it may be worth it. You could also use a USB HDD connected to the Wii and use a USB Loader to dump the game directly to the USB HDD.

    These two links will get you familier with USB Loading

    You may also wanna check my sig for a USB HDD compatibility list, so your sure you either have the right one, or are buying the correct one.

    Talking

    The LG DVD Drives you need to look for are:
    • LG-8164b (IDE)
    • LG-8163b (IDE)
    • LG-8162b (IDE)
    • LG-8161b (IDE)
    • LG GDR-H10NBLK (SATA)

    These aren't special drives they just happen to be good at ripping wii games

    And how are they not special? I can't throw a Wii game into my computers DVD-ROM and rip a game. As far as I know [besides the drives in the Wii itself] these drives are the ONLY ones that can rip Wii games. I'd say that makes them pretty special.

    by 'not special' I mean they were not specifically designed to rip wii games, they just can, its not by design. a bit like when DVD's were being backed up, Toshiba DVD-ROMs were the source drives to use.
