    I just came back from my computer store with an Hitachi/LG 8164B DVD Drive, i'm ripping Red Steel for the wii now with RawDump 2.0

    I asked the guy if he can give me some discount if i buy more drives from him and it was no problem.
    Are more people interested in this dvd drive? i dont know how hard it is to find it in other countries?
    Just trying to help out [​IMG]

    A game can be burned with any dvd burner correct? But if I want to dump/rip a game I need any LG dvd drive correct?


    Thanks

    You need one of the LG dvd-rom drives 8162b, 8163b, 8164b

    I live in the U.S and all of the LG drives I have found have letters after "b"
    example http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList....l&Go.x=0&Go.y=0

    Would these work?

    Thanks

    I found one:) I cannot remember what the name of the cases are that allow internal dvd players to work externally.

    Anyone know what they are called?

    Yes, as long as it's a LG 8614b drive from your link. The letter after first b is just the color code of the drive.

    Yeah on Newegg, I know for sure this model works: LG Black E-IDE/ATAPI DVD-ROM Multi Read Drive Model GDR-8164BK - OEM

    with this external enclosure:

    ENERMAX EB505U-S Aluminum 5.25" USB 2.0 External Enclosure - Retail
