    After I have burnt a copy of an image-file of a Wii title to a DVD-R, can I later make a copy of the disc so I have two?
    In other words, do I need the image-file if I want to make another copy or can I just copy my already burnt disc?

    Take a look at IMGBurn's menu. There's a big, huge button that does exactly what you're looking to do.

    really? The only reason I use nero is because I could never find a copy disk button, I know it can be done using img burn but I always thought u had 2 do it in 2 steps 1)rip disk image, 2) burn disk image. It's no different than Nero, but its less automated... if there's something I'm missing, plz let me know (i'm look at img burn 2.4.3.0 right now)... if there's a button i'm blindly missing I may just switch to img burn over resource hungry nero

    Oooh, I misread the post in that case. I thought he was just looking for how to get the image off of the disc (since some people don't know that IMGBurn can do that for some reason). There's no clone disc feature. My bad.

    So what you are saying is that it will work? Even if I just copy my burnt disc with Nero?
    Thanks for your replies!

    YES!
    It will work!

    Imageburn OR Nero can take your burned disc and make a image of the burned disc!
    Its not rocket science, people!!!!!
    Just use Imageburn, pick "create image file from disc", give it a name, and tada!
    Its magically on your hard drive again!
    OMG!!!!!!

    In the good old days, when I was burning my Dreamcast games, I learned that after I burned an image, and delete it, it wasn't possible to remake an image from a burned CDROM, I a special drive was needed ,or a serial cable from the DC to PC, in other words, it was easier to redawnload the game then trying to make an image that way.
    That's because a DC CDROM was really a GDROM, and could hold slightly more data and was formatted in a special way.
    So when I see a topic like this, I'm glad that the Wii has standard DVDs, and it's possible to re-rip them as many time as you want and IMGBURN is fantastic at that.
    I always think is a legitimate question though, and having doubts about it is perfectly fine as it means that you have experience, opposed to whoever newbie assumes that it's just as simple as pressing the big RIP button.
    With the Wii it works, but it's not always the case.

    The same holds true with Dreamcast games.........
    If you have a Dreamcast backup on CD-R, just use Discjuggler to make an image file from said disc.
    Yes, you are right, a DC game is a GD-ROM, and you can't make a copy of it, its better to DL a image of the game.
    But once you have it, its there to use / recopy for ever and ever...........

    if you have a working copy, you can copy that disc as usual. no tricks needed.
