    if it's an iso, yes. if it's a "wii" file, you have to unscramble it first. in the end though, you just burn it like a regular iso.

    Rawdump will unscramble ISOs if you're using windows

    just read up on it and it says:

    Rawdump is essentially an app that dumps the image of a Wii game onto an available format. You will , however, need an LG disc drive if you intend to dump the game onto a disc

    whats that mean a LG disc drive/

    at this point, you really should be using the search feature, as directed in the above post. I will say just this though. You don't need an LG drive to burn the games. You can burn them on any brand DVD burning drive. If you're still lost after that, use the search feature. Or better yet, google it.

    I could have sworn the last time I checked, LG means Life's Good, not Lucky Goldstar. Unless there is some other company that's ripping the name off.

    HAHA awsome... yeh as previous posts you cant use any other drive to copy wii games...except the lg drives listed above.

    use rawdump, it makes an iso. you burn with a dvd burner of your choice then boom fully backed up wii game, simple. just have to buy a lg drive to see the original wii games, nothing else will work

    I was pretty sure it wasn't, so i googled it...

    "The previous company name was Lucky-Goldstar, from which the abbreviation of LG was derived, However, their slogan encourages the public to assume that LG stands for "Life's Good", but this is a backronym." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LG_Electronics

    if you want to rip games all you need is an Lg DVD/CD ROM (LG-8164, LG-8163, LG-8162, LG-8161). NOT a burner
    these things are cheap i just got the 8163 for $17

    once you use rawdump to make the iso you can burn with any DVD burner
