    What is the best method to get a 1:1 backup of a Wii Game ?

    I used to use the cIOS-DVD_Dumper v1.2 to dump the file over wifi but this takes 3-4 hours.. ICK! However I think this is the BEST 1:1 copy that includes all partitions and the "junk data".

    Ive installed them on various USB loaders to a WBFS Drive and pulled the files off the WBFS drive to an ISO. All these methods seem to result in a ISO with various results most if not all have been "cleaned" to some extent removing update partitions and other stuff like channels that came with the DVD and the Junk Data. Not a 1:1 copy. Advantage to this method is it is reasonably fast 1 - 30mins per disc...

    Is there a Disc dumper that will dump straight to a USB harddrive and not mess with the junk data giving a True 1:1 copy ?

    Its such a process to dump DVDs I want to get a FULL 1 to 1 copy as a backup that I can backup on my computers Harddrives. So I dont need to Do it again.

    Thanks for any advice .

    Configurable USB loader has the ability to install games to HDD in a 1:1 format.

    There's an app called SuperDump that should do what you want.
