    Default Backup an original Wii disc

    I want to make a backup of a game that I already own.

    How do I do this? Do I need specific software?

    As far as I know you need a specific LG drive to do this.

    LG GDR-8164B, LG 8163b, LG 8162b, LG 8161b are all compatible.

    ...or you can use Wii Dumper from the homebrew channel if you have WiFi to your PC, but this method may put unnecessary ware on your Wii drive.

    I read about the LG drives, that is not an option for me, I also knew about the Wii dumper.

    I was wondering if there was any software available for the PC that would do it.

    You need to read originals and dump them as RAW with Wii Rawdump 2, only the LG 814*B can do this.

    Its prolly easier to download the games via news, as it takes 90 - 180 minutes to dump the image.
