    Hi there, today finally I got my wii chipped some electronic technician did it for free because he was curious to see a new toy around [​IMG] The thing is , I wrote some backup images to discs and I no longer need them but in the future say if I want to make a copy of them again would the backup discs work , (to get the image from) ? Or would I need to find "backup images" again ?

    The backup disks would work fine. You'll still need to get an .iso from them though as you would do burning an original game. Not sure if it would be wise to keep making backups of backups of backups though as I'd imagine that somewhere along the line the quality would drop..... couldn't say for sure though.

    You would simply 'backup' your copies by doing a straight forward data dvd copy. No need to dump the discs again as you would an original.
