    Hello, I'm using a LG model GDR-8163BB for the dump and a Cyclowiz mod chip Ver. 2.0, and absolutely no problems in here.

    The DVD format( + or -)support depends on your mod chip, for example Cyclowiz supports all the formats. In my experience with dvd movies the best brand for writable DVDs is TDK.

    Thanks for the guide...

    I know for PS2 backups Tayo Yuden DVD-R is usually highly recommended....

    ok i fixed my error problem but in case anyone else gets this error here's how you fix it:

    1) you could possibly use 0.4 version of rawdump this will eliminate the error

    or

    2) go into device manager and click on IDE ATA then right click on primary IDE channel and select advanced setting , from there set your transer mode to " PIO only "

    this worked like a charm for me hope this helps others

    i am using NERO Ultra burning as stated in the Tut @ 2X and 2.4X
    I have tried 3 different types of blank DVD media and none will produce
    a readable disk
    when i explore the burned disk in my computer .. go to the properties of it it says the disk has 0 Bytes and 0 Bytes free? yet its recognized as a DVD ROM .. what gives?
    Do I need some kinda mod chip installed in my Wii?
    any help please, Thank you
    Moose

    Yes Moose, I believe that part is explained in the original post. You need a Modchip......LOL

    When you get one put in, let us know how its working. I believe the Wiikey is the one to get (works the best) at this time.

    Does anyone know if once the backup has been created if it can be copied directly to another disc? If so which would be the best program to do this?

    Regarding the installation of net framework 2.0, I think this has already been downloaded via windows update. How can I double check so I dont overwrite any newer updates/revisions?

    First, I would like to say this site is very impressive. A few hours ago I had no clue where to start. I orderd a wii key a few days ago and a lg8164 today. Still need to get a dvd burner though, my burner is only cd burner. Last time I used it was for PS1 !!

    Any cheap, but good burner you would suggest?

    Also I know nothing about what dvds to use. I have a pack of DVD -RW, WILL THEY WORK?

    When I buy dvds again what would be the best ones to buy?

    Thanks, you guys ROCK! Oh and what games should I get first??? Only one I have is SSX Blur.

    I have 2 NEC DVD burners, one in each desktop PC. They cost about $40 at newegg.com. Thats just a personal preference. If you use Newegg, look at how many reviews there are for the drive, what the rating is (look for a burnewr that is rated 4 or 5 stars), and cost. I think some have free shipping.
