    I'm trying to test out a theory and was wondering if you can make a dump from a backup?

    I think it was just be easier if you use NERO and just put in the backup and do create ISO from dvd.

    Of course. You don't even need a special DVD-drive for it. Just use imgburn and create the iso

    wait you can make an ISO of a backup on the computer without one of those LG drives? why didn't it work when i tried, i wanted to make an ISO of Castlevania Judgement so i can try patching it with WiiFrii since the NTSC copy was giving me trouble.

    I'm trying it now and so far it looks like it works. I just need a confirmation from dude I'm sending game to just to make sure things work.

    You can make a copy of a backup from your computer without a special LG drive. For originals, you still need the special LG drives. Theres no other way, so far (well, except for dumping from wii).
