    Is it even possible? If it is can someone tell me what program I can use because my friend has a backup of a few games I want to make one. [​IMG]

    Just use any burning software that you find fancy and can copy a dvd. Backups just don't need any special software like original wii games to be read out.

    I was under understanding that though you are using a DVDr, that you would still need a specific drive to even read the disc?

    I'm at work, so I can't obviously prove the previous statement one way or another...

    I'd be curious to because I would like to clear up some hard drive space pretty soon here, so it would be nice to make backups of backups if necessary.

    No you don't need a special drive to make a backup of a backup. Nor do you need some special software apart from your desired burning software. You can burn them on the fly. Did this with ca. 5 Backups some weeks ago. Worked like a charm. Used imgburn for it.

    If you have Linux, you can run:

    Code:
    dd if=/dev/dvd of=[name].iso
