    A friend of mine has a few wii games that I don't have and I don't want to download them. So is there a way to rip the iso from the disc using the pc?

    There are 3 methods:

    1. Using a specific LG drive which allows the games to be read
    2. Dumping through the wii via SD cards or USB drives and then reassembling the data later on
    3. Using the USB loader to dump them to the harddrives and then using one of the many utilities to extract it from the drive.

    Well you could get the dvd dumper app for the homebrew channel then either dump the iso to a sd card/usb drive or through nintendo wi-fi connection. Reply if u have any other questions. Heres a link for the download:
