    so I have a bunch of burned games and have deleted the isos for them


    my friend wants some copies, do I need to re-dump these using the wii?( is that even possible? I have a modchip.)

    or since they're already on standard DVDs can I just using imgburn's dvd copy function?



    (if i don't get an answer anytime soon I'll try it anyway and report here but i prefer to not waste dvds.)

    Yes you can just copy the backup. You could redump, but would take a lot longer.

    Ye should work fine. I just used the copy feature on Roxio and did it as an iso in about 5 or 10 min. Prob the same with imgburn just give it a shot.

    yeah imgburn works just fine

    use "create image from disc" which saves an image of the disk to your hard drive

    then use "write image file to disc" to burn it to a blank dvd-r

    I think he was talking about the time it takes to dump it from his Wii to the PC...which is approx 3 hours... if you are getting the Wii to dump games in 15 minutes to the pc...please tell us.

    By the way has anyone used the wii dumper by Wan to dump the .iso to a usb mass storage?! If you were successful what was the config you used and how long? The only success I have had is Wiidump through wifi, as mentioned.

    That's actually interesting, for some reason I always assumed that once I delete an iso from my pc, there was no way to make a new one from a burned DVD, I thought it was the same as making an iso from a regular retail copy of the game.
    I am glad I was wrong ! It was certainly so with Dreamcast games, once burned on a CD you would have to go trough all the serial process to dump it again in order to make an iso....
    By the way, does that mean that if I redump a game from a burned DVD I can play with the image again ( I am talking about changing the region, of force the language and remove updates...) ?
    I have some MULTI5 games that I'd like to force to my native Italian language, and I didn't know how to do it utill recently, the games are already burned and the iso deleted.......
