My Wii and NDS have been on hiatus due to my fascination with the PS3, but I would like to bring them back to life again. Okay, so I got my DS questions answered in the DS section. Now onto the Wii! My Wii has the 3.2 firmware and a wiikey was put in it sometime in January of 2008. I don't know the wiikey's firmware, but maybe you guys would know based on the date I gave you. I want to play newer retail and back up games, particularly PUNCH-OUT! So here are my questions: 1. Is it safe to update to the latest firmware and still be able to play old and new back-ups? 2. Is it safe to update to the latest firmware and still be able to play my retail discs? 3. Do I need to update my wiikey? 4. Has the dumping method and speed improved? The last time I backed-up some of my games, I used Rawdump with a special dvd-rom from LG. I still have these tools. Any advice and heads-ups is appreciated. Thank you in advance!
