What makes he LG drives so special? Why can't any drive work?
I have no idea, maybe thats what nintendo uses lol, usually LG has pretty crappy stuff, I am just as curious as you are. But is it really that big of a deal to spend 18 bucks on a new drive?
It's special because the Magic Wii Fairy sprinkled Mii's all over the DVD-ROM.
Actually I found this on another site...
Q: Why are the known Wii disc backup LG drives the only ones you can use for backup purposes?
A: Because they are GDR models, which is what the Wii console uses. GD-Rom is the Nintendo Wii's burning format.
When I use Rawdump2.0 with my computer it says Wii disc dected and Getting DVD name. Than it stops and says Error you may have a faulty drive! I dont have a LG drive. But does that mean min works halfway?
It means you don't have a compatible drive.
You need to use a compatible LG drive for it.
I doubt it, but I havent used raw dump yet so I wouldnt know for sure.
and just curious what does GD stand for?
Go to the link below.
Does anyone know of a GDR drive that i could get at frys?
without knowing what they sell at frys thats a difficult answer to give. surely it would be best to go down there and ask? If you buy a drive that isnt one of the LG drives listed and it doesnt work what will you do? bet they wont take it back
or better still do a google search for the lg drives and buy one off the net like i did for about £15
that would mean the lg drives can read dreamcast games! correct me if im wrong
not sure, as the LG drives can only read the discs when using RAWDUMP 2.0. unless there is software for the DC that does same job?
Are there any LG drives for a laptop that can rip a wii disc?
or can i use a USB to IDE adapter cable on the LG drive to my laptop ...? thanks
some ppl in here have done that - put the lg drive in an enclosure and connected by usb2
some have had issues with some enclosures i believe
Is it normal for a backup to take around 3 hours? Also no damage should be made to the originals while ripping rihgt?! Thanks
yep about 2.5 - 3 hours
the original cd can blow up sometimes if it knows you are being a bad bad boy but... seriously the original will be fine
hehe lol, had me going for a sec! Just got my new LG drive and baced up zelda, funnily enuf it exploded and i dint get anmy prese's for christmas!!
