    Hi,

    I know you can backup an original game on the Wii by transferring it over WiFi to your computer using the homebrew channel, but is it possible to pop the DVD into the DVD Drive of a computer and back it up like that, rather than through the Wii?

    Also, once it has been backed up, is there anything else to do to the ISO other than to brickblock and region free it?

    Thanks for your help.

    If you don't have those, than you're outta luck. :/

    You can if your hardware can read the disk in the first place. If it can't, no software will change that fact.
