    Yes, they can be Softmoded but they just cannot play Backup discs.
    Games from USB or SD work fine.

    I have excatly the same problem, but I installed the cyclowiz V2 about 3 years ago. I have about 30 backups that always worked fine.
    the wii got boring so no one used it for about a year.
    I just tried using it and the backups that load ok but as I play them i get a disk read error. if I pop it out and put it in I can continue playing the game.
    I have been reading the internet for info on this problem and I read in one post that some software up dates that happen when you install a new game in the wii like "wii fit" changes the speed that the dvd drive runs so if you burned the backup at 8x and the new wii software is running the drive at 6x the wii won't read the backup very well.
    I checked the wii firmware and it is 3.1U
    the last upgrade happend when I installed the "wii fit"

    I think the cyclowiz people are out of business.
    so I am thinking I might have to remove the cyclowiz and install a new mod chip.

    I am just guessing about this....if anyone knows about this please post it

    Thanks

    Help please, I just ordered the 8163b drive and followed instruction on the first post. When I went to install netframe the option was Repair or Uninstall so I chose Repair. When I click Start Dump I get a pop up error message

    Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the appplication will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immedeately.

    I appreciate any help I can get.

    Thanks

    Give Freedump or Hektosoft´s Hektograph a try. Both
    tools run well on the 816x drives without the .NET framework.

    Best regards

    Actually I got it to work. I uninstalled and reinstalled Netframe, insert the game first and let the drive stop, then open rawdump and start dump.

    I have an off topic question, I'm having issue configure my Dolphin, I cant get player 2 to work with the keyboard, player 1 with keyboard is fine. Can someone point me in the right direction/forum topic?

    Thanks

    NEVER try to be faster than your drive...

    If you have it modded with the Twilight hack, then you don't need a modchip also to play backups.

    Just use neogamma to play the backups.

    Can anyone tell if this drive is the same as a LG 8162, HP HITACHI LG GDR-8164B GDR-8164 GDR8164B DVD-ROM BLACK

    Never mind I found out it will work. Is there anyone checking this thread? I do have a ouestion or two. I used Rawdump and could not find the ISO file. In the read files it says that the files are in the RawDump.exe folder, but I can't find the files. When I go to ImgBurn I can find the files on write image file to disc but imgburn locks up and stops burning. and can't view the files. I'm useing RawDump 2.1. I'm trying a new dump. Can anyone help.

    Install WBFS Manager on your PC
    Take a HDD make 2 partitions
    - first fat32 4GB
    - second rest of disk
    Install WiiFlow 1.1 on the first partion
    Load WBFS Manager
    Mount the second partion
    Format this partion as WBFS
    Close the WBSF Manager

    Connect the HDD to USB port 0 of your Wii
    Run Wiiflow
    setup
    install game
    Put a game disk in your Wii
    Press ok
    Wait a few minutes
    Press Done

    The game is installed on your WBFS partion.

    Close Wiiflow
    Connect the HDD to your PC

    WATCH OUT!!! DONT FORMAT PARTION 2 (your pc asks)

    Open WBFS Manager

    Have got the right drive, rawdump, nero etc, the right dvd's & spent a night backing up the wii games.

    My son has a very old version of the Wii - about 3-4 years old, he got his more or less when they first came out, however I only got mine in Feb this year - a black one too! nice.

    I'm not prepared to mod mine or open it etc otherwise it will default the warranty. But my son will allow me to do what is needed on his.

    Again, I'm not prepared to open up any consoles. I just want to back up the Wii disc's for the grandchildren to use and preserve the originals.

    As I've followed your instructions to the 'T' - I still can't play the copied discs not on my console or my sons.

    Any suggestions please.

    Nope you can't because you have only prepared the discs so far, not the wii

    The wii will have to softmodded in order for you to play your backups

    You can follow this guide to install a softmod.
    Then you will be able to play backups either using Neogamma loader, or from a usb drive if you wish even. USB guide

    Is there anything new like what DVD drives I can use to back up my new purchased Wii Games?

    I know there is:
    * LG-8164b
    * LG-8163b
    * LG-8162b
    * LG-8161b

    And the GDR-8082N for notebooks.

    But is there any more that i should know about? I sold my LG 8164b for C$40 awhile back, I have a Dell notebook now that has a slot load DVD. Is there one that will read my purchased Wii Games but still burn a purchased Wii Game copy with the same drive? It doesn't need to be a Slot load but I would prefer it to be one that I can install in my DeLL But yet still be a Burner too. BTW it is a IDE/ATAPI Interface.

    No, and I doubt there will be. Those drives are quite old and have a means of looking at a DVD that isn't in a specific format (like Windows/Unix/whatever) and still being able to pull data off the DVD. New drives are not being built with that option implemented in the firmware. You can still get those drives online for a good price at www.foundmy.com. There are probably other places to buy them (that is where I got mine) but that doesn't solve your problem of needing to do this on a laptop. It seems I have seen adapters that can turn an internal DVD drive into a USB drive on the internet. You may want to see if you can find something like that.
