    The LG-8164b, LG-8163b, LG-8162b or LG-8161b dvd drive. It can dump both Wii and GC games.

    Those numbers don't say anything to me. Yes, i know. I'm a total noob.
    Anyway, i got this drive, i guess it won't work, right?

    Those numbers are the model#s' of the DVD Drives. For instance, the one you linked to is model# GSA-H42N. I doubt it would work, but I guess you could just get a regular game and see if it rips and plays properly.

    If not, just do a google search for those model numbers that SpaceJump listed and buy from whatever reputable seller that can ship to your locale.

    Like the others said above, inorder to rip wii/gc images you HAVE to use the drives listed above because only those contain special debugging commands that are able to read wii/gc disks. The drive itself is inexpensive; you can get it for 18 bucks from newegg: Newegg LG Drive
