So, captain intelligent here, was like LOL HAY DOOD MAYBE I SHOULD MOD TEH WII LOL, so i go and get it done


sound retarded? no? thats because its logical up untill this point.

I go home, read the guide on burning the programs, and realise crap.... i DONT EVEN HAVE A DVD BURNER D:

Really not that bad, cuz i was sure the computer down stairs had one..... NOPE.

So, the only burner i am accessible to now is a pioneer dvd -rw dvr-107d on a macintosh computer.

Is it possible for me to do all the de-scrambling at my house, pop the finished iso on to my portable harddrive, whip it over to my buddys and burn the image? or am i H00PED :{

the fact that you are asking this confirms the topic. Naturally you can transfer a file from one computer to another with proper transfer tools -.-. Generally though you won't even have to unscramble.....

hehh, k cool, i was reading through a few guides and they specified macs could not operate one of the unscrambling programs, and yet another saying that it had to be an LG drive that would burn it.


I was simply making sure it was knownt hat the unscrambling is being done on the intended device, a windows PC, but it was the computer being used to burn the image, being both a mac and the non listed driver that made me upset.


However, i thought there was a good chance that this would be outdated information, thank you for clarifying

the requirement of the LG drive is only there for a certain ripping program, to burn the images you can use any DVD burner really.

get yourself a good Pioneer drive, (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16827129018)i havent had any problems with my drive (model DVR-111D) just media. had a spindle of 15 Memorex DL discs, had to throw 11 out cause they partially burned, or wouldnt burn at all. took the ones that wouldnt start burning and took them to my bro's place and his burner (also pioneer, but a little newer) wouldnt start either. other than those 11 discs, all the verbatim and HP media ive burned on it work fine data wise... SSBB is a different story (only cause d2ckey doesnt like the Caravan dump for some reason)

not all dvd burners can burn dual layer, so i'd look into it before getting all excited and buying the media and running to your friend only to be disapointed

personally, i feel its worth the investment of like 30-50$ for a dvd burner as has already been mentioned. but i've been using chipped systems for years now so of course its worth it for me.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16827106228 i love my lite-ons and have been loyal for years... i've got the 16x model from a year or more back and its never failed ye.. i may end up ordering this (25$ i mean cmon excellent price)

*sigh*

Not all disc drives are the same. The front of the drive should have some kind of label on it, so you can identify if its a dvd burner, cd burner, or just a regular cd or dvd drive.
