    I wanna get the Rhythm Heaven Fever .iso from my disc, but I can't use USBLoader to do it because my Wii can't seem to read discs anymore (which is why I want to grab the file in the first place). Is there something else I can use to do this, or am I just going to have to deal with it?

    probably should clarify--it's not USBLoader in particular, my drive is just busted (it won't spin), and I've now been informed that there's probably no other way do get this done without using a Wii, but thanks for the help.

    There's actually a few LightOn drives that can read Nintendo optical discs but I don't think they're available any more. Sorry. :/

    my dad works for nintendo.
    and for the price he could get a used wii and use it...

    yeah mate, you are out of luck, only some rare dvd drives read properly wii discs...

    well, you can always pirate.. you own the disc it's the same thing..

    Torrent it. It would be legal as you already own a copy of the game.

    thank you for reply to a question which was pretty much answered 1 month ago since OP didn't gave news. Btw If you read the post just above yours you can see that your suggestion was already suggested.

    as for "it would be legal as you already own a copy of the game"
    here's a nice thread about piracy which you can discuss further https://gbatemp.net/threads/piracy-common-myths.344858/
