Okay is there another way to dump the disc using my pc?

Works, but is a lot slower than simply using a Wii. Those drives are pretty old by today's standards – IDE drives which means you will need an older computer (USB enclosure might or might not work; an older computer is certainly better)
On the plus side: The LG drive was able to rip a scratched up discs where Wii and GC consoles gave up.

It is certainly easier and cheaper to use a Wii.

Good luck and have fun!

Thanks for the advice but for some reason when I tried extracting it from the Wii USB Loader GX & CleanRip it freezes on me.

Would you happen to try a USB key by any chance when the freezes happened? Those are likely to fail, for some reason.
Try dumping using the SD card, or a USB HDD with external power if possible.

Yea your going to waste money on getting the drive then come to realize it won't rip on pc and come back to what I already said to do
Yeah I know it's just that I've already got the games.
