    u dont need rawdump to copy a copy just use imgburn with any drive

    rawdump dumps a copy of the original on your hard drive and needs a LG drive to do so takes a few hours

    Odd thing happened to me, I backed up a backup, then burnt it and tested it out to make sure it works, and it does. But the image file for the backup of the backup is larger than what the wii games are supposed to be. I don't care since it still works, but is this normal?

    I just registered so I could ask a question regarding this.
    I have made a backup of one of my games, and after a search it appeared as though just setting imgburn into read mode and then copying it to an ISO works fine, except imgburn has been giving me a few retries (no errors though apparently). Will the ISO it is making for me be perfectly able to burn and work on my Wii (with Wiikey of course :D)?

    So is the fact of the matter that you can only READ original company pressed games with an LG drive, but once they have been read and made an ISO of they are capable or playback and recopying from ANY drive? Thanks in advanced. :)

    Eh screw it, if this guy wants to get insulting, hell with him. The answers are there already, if he just looked around. I say it this way "Use search or look around, the answers are already there" and leave him to his own ways.

    Hmmm not a very good way to start. Let's keep those comments off the forums.
