    Only a select few drives will read original discs, so yeah most people use a Wii program.

    You need a special DVD drive (LG drive) to read original Wii DVD on a computer.

    Your best choice is to dump the game on the Wii.
    Use either Super dump, or emukidid's CleanRip.

    Another choice is to use USBloader's dump menu if you need only the game partition and don't plan to do a clean 1:1 dump of the disc.
