    The EASIEST way to backup games is to source one of the LG drives listed, and use RAWDUMP to rip. Sure it takes from 1'45" to 2'30" to backup a game( depending on which DVDROM you buy ), but ive done over 200 games and havent had ONE single fail YET!. And i think the 1.5Tb of games proves that!! The only other way is to use USB Loader or HDD Loader.No HARD modding is required to the console.

    Actually there are 3 Programs that can do the job and the timing differs as well.

    1. Friidump:
    -This is a command line tool.
    -It´s the slowest of the 3 available programs.
    -It needs around 3.5 Hours for a single Layer Disk with it´s fastest dumping method.
    -It has dual layer support.

    2. RawDump:
    -This is a .NET based tool. Therefore the proper .NET framework has to be installed for it to run.
    -It dumps much faster than freedump ~2.5 Hours for a single Layer Disk.
    -It has no dual layer support: read my lips! It can NOT dump dual Layer disks.
    -Many report that it does not work on Vista & Windows 7 while others seem to have no problems.

    3. Hektosoft´s Hektograph:
    -This is a Win32 Program that runs on the XP, Vista and Windows7.
    -It dumps even faster than RAWDUMP: ~2.1 hours for single layer disks.
    -It can also dump dual Layer Disks
    -Dumping is just one feature of the tool. It can also burn the images
    to disk and allows setting the layerbreak (necessary for dual layer).
    -Dumping & Burning of 360 disks with SplitVid is supported as well.
    -Audio CD Ripping and on the fly conversion to any installed ACM (MP3)
    or WMA codec is also included. It also get´s title names through
    FreeDB and inserts them as ID3TAG or WMA-Descriptor.

    Best regards

    USB-Loaders are capable of duplicating disks to the usb-drive. That´s what he meant.

    Please do. I'm not sure I understand all of that. I have had trouble soft mod, I couldn't get everything loaded. I did buy the DVD rom from ebay, and burnt a game but couldn't play it. I bought my wii afew months ago. I did back my wii up just incase it bricked. I was sucked in on buyong a soft mod didn't know any better.

    Sure you can use Friidump and Hektograph, but Rawdump is one-click...easy. And really, the only game u would need the other 2 programs for is SSBB as its the only dual layer game i know of. Just rip the games with Rawdump, and burn with Imgburn, DONE! Im toying with a HDD loader, but seeing my console is Vers 4.3, Im having some dramas with the Cios downgrade...Ive loaded the Homebrew channel, but keep getting an error when loading DOPmii..any suggestions?

    You mean SSBS (Super Smash BrotherS). Besides that there are
    more dual layer titles: i.e. Metroid Prime Trilogy and Sakura Wars.

    Yes you can and you can use a program called WBFS Manager to transfer the games from the computer to HDD. You need to softmod your wii and run a USB loader like GX loader, you can google everything for the downloads and tout's.

    Are they on the same cable? If so, make sure that one is a master and one is a slave via their jumpers...

    Hi,

    And apologies if this is arepeated question - but as this thread is now 20 odd pages I may have missed the answer.

    I'm sure this questioned must have been asked numerious times, however I cannot find a simple answer - and it isn't for the want of trying.

    Here goes:

    I've downloaded numerious wii games from torrent sites and burnt them to a DVD using IMGBurn successfully - which all works well in my chipped wii. Now I want to make copies of those games to play on another chipped wii, however when I attempt this via IMGBurn I always recieve a read error, at the reading phase never mind while writing.

    Is there an easier tool I can use that will allow me to copy, copied wii games?

    Is there some kind of setting within IMGBurn that I am not setting / using ?

    Thanks for any help in this matter

    hej,
    if you create the ISO image using the LG driver and the dump software... can I use the ISO
    with an SD Card and a Wii with WiiKey Fusion chip, instead of a DVD?
    Regards
