    Right now I'm on a fairly week wireless network so using torrents and the usenet are poor choices for acquiring ISO's. What is the current easiest and cheapest method to burn a game using a physical copy of the game as the source?

    See that hole in your wall?
    Gamefly or any local rental place (none here so I use Gamefly), if you can rip the ISOs yourself. I do it with PS2 games atm.

    assuming that you own the game, just buy an LG dvd drive that is known to work in dumping Wii games. and then burn it.

    The LG drives cost like $20 on the internet.....

    It's much nice to do that then use the SD dumping programs.

    $10! I used to sell dreamcast bootlegs for $5 over the net. When they where popular anyway. But that was MANY years ago..

    In any case the SD method mentioned before, or the LG drive is the best method.

    Its one thing to back up a game for personal use but to parade in the open about profiting from it is criminal. There is nothing glorious about backing up to sell. You will find your adult life full of unhappiness if you think this is legal and it will eventually catch up to you.
