    Hi All,
    Is this the best method to create backup ISO files from originals to load to a USB HDD?
    Cheers

    No. The best and easiest way to rip originals is to put them in your Wii's disc drive and let your USB loader rip them to the hard drive. Chances are your PC's drive won't even recognize a Wii disc...Unless you have one of the few magic LG drives.

    I think that's what op meant, but not sure due the the strange sentence.

    Sorry, I'm trying to use the read on the 'imgburn' software but it throws up 20/20 errors and fails.
    Any ideas? (Vista Ultimate 64bit) OS.
    Cheers

    OK folks, I'll give that a try. I'm using the usb loader from the softmod guide so I'll hopefully figure that out!!

    I assumed the OP meant making a backup through Imgburn because of the title.
