    You can't open them in Winrar. They won't be detected on your PC as any kind of bootable media. Why your Wii doesn't detect it could be a multitude of reasons. How old is the Wii?

    I see...go here, enter your serial number, then and tell me what drive it says you have. It might be that it's too new to play DVD backups (meaning you'd have to use USB backups instead)

    Edit: What kind of discs are you using? What program are you using to burn them? How fast are you burning them?

    What brand? DVD-R or +R? Use imgburn at 2.4x (it's free), If it's DVD+R I don't think that drive reads them very well...Also get Verbatim DVD-R discs, and if all else fails just get a 16GB flashdrive/external HD and use a USB loader instead.

    1: Get an external hard drive (any size, 50gb+ works fine, games aren't that big)
    2: Get WBFS manager or similar, format HDD to WBFS, put games on hardrive
    3: Plug into wii
    4: Get and/or use a backup loader to load games on hard drive

    Why waste time and effort burning games? Talk about pointless.

    WBFS is obsolete, just go with fat32.
    Also, you cant play GC games from USB (if the op would want that).


    And Oh by the way, after 3 comes "4", not 2 :P

    You can't just burn a dumped iso and put it in the Wii without any modification (hardware like a modchip, or software like patching your Wii's internal files to accept DVD-R)

    I think the OP needs to learn to walk before he can run... Wii games. lol

    Lots of reading lay ahead :)

    The good news is he has a launch Wii or at least one that can read burned disks so that will help.

    Some one should point him in the direction of Xflaks ModMii *looks around* ok ok I will do it... lol

    Edit: Not sure if Xflak has this as part of his ModMii thingy but either way its something else to read and maybe learn a bit :)

    Letterbomb is also part of modmii guide (it opens a html guide with a youtube video explaining where to find the mac address, etc.)
