    If you are copying Backup games to your PC from DVD's ie copied versions Img Burn will let you copy them to an ISO.
    If you want to copy originals you will need a certain GDR dvd rom drive.
    If your copying from game already on a HD just use WFBS Manager

    Will that let me install from a disc (not just an iso)? I had a program on a laptop (that i no longer have) that allowed me to do this but i can't remember the name of the program and searches are coming up with nothing. (it was in another language i believe).

    I tried to copy my Sports disc using ImgBurn, but the disc could not be read. I think not all drives support reading Wii discs.

    Burned backup copies downloaded from the net can be read by IMGburn
    Original Wii games have to be read with specific DVD-rom drives (Mostly LG drives i think)

    Did you read want I said:

    1. If you are copying games to your PC from burned backup. Img Burn will let you copy them to an ISO.
    2. If you want to copy originals you will need a certain GDR DVD ROM from LG. As your drive will more than likely not read them
    3. If your copying from a WFBS formatted HD that your games are already on use WFBS Manager

    Sorry, my bad. I missed out the "burned backup".
