    Us Backing up Wii games to discs...

    Hi, three questions I'm hoping someone can answer...

    1) What program should I use to burn Wii ISO's to disk? (I used Daemon tools in hopes to just view the files contained in the ISO but I get an error message stating something about incorrect format so I'm under the assumption that I need specialized burner software like image burn or something like that for backup.)

    2) Is it possible to back up Wii games once they have been copied to an external hard drive & play from disc? (I use the configurable USB loader to back up my games and want to know if there's a way to transfer that data to a disc for back up & play.)

    and 3) Do I use the BACK UP DISC Channel to play my backup discs? (I used the 4.3 softmod guide from this site and this channel was installed on my Wii. I'm assuming I shouldn't have any problems in doing so if the function of this channel is to play disc backups but just wanted some clarification.)

    Thanks in advance and hope to hear from someone soon

    1. Imageburn seems to be recommended a lot here. There is a guide to help you burn correctly too.
    2. Yes. connect your usb drive to your computer and use wbfs manager to extract the iso.
    3. Neogamma is the popular recommendation here, but the backup launcher sounds like it will work too.

    When I try this it says to format my hard drive. It'll just wipe all the games if I do that though won't it????

    This message should be coming from windows directly wich is normal since windows cant read wbfs . of course dont start the format or you will loose all your data. Just cancel this message and start wbfs manager, you'll have the option to load your drive. select the correct letter and press load. Your gamelist should appears and you'll see the option to extract game...

    hope it helps.

    When I press load on wbfs manager it won't load it just says I need to format it. I have a pen drive that is still working correctly it's just my big external hd that won't work.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks
