I searched afterdawn and found out that you had 2 unscramble the .wii image or something like that and then burn it through nero, but i have a mac not a pc so i cant do that can someone please help me. I have a POWERFUL powermac laptop with a pioneer dvd burner. Can you tell me what 2 do after i have the .wii image.

    When you download the game, is it in .wii or .iso format? Because, I've downloaded games before, and they were usually in .iso format! If it's in .iso format, just put a DVD in your Drive, and burn the image to a disc! If it's in .wii format, I don't know what to say to ya...

    I have no idea if you can even use a MAC to read a Wii disc.

    I do know the only way you can read the Wii disc on a Windows PC is by using 1 of the following drives to dump the Wii image to the PC using a program called Rawdump 2.0

    LG-8164b or LG-8163b or LG-8162b or LG-8161b

    I have no idea if this processes even works on a MAC but I would assume you would need the same drive and the same program to get the job done. So if this is true then it would come down to if the drive and program are compatible with a MAC computer.

    I do not have a MAC so I can't answer this question for you. Hopefully someone else can verify for you if this processes is achievable on a MAC computer.

    To make it simple you could always download the game for backup purposes and not worry about ripping the Wii game to your MAC and just burn the downloaded game.

    I bought one of those drives from newegg.com along with a USB enclosure and plan on using virtual pc to use the rawdump program...

    this should be fine if you are on a mac...
