    The only place i've really searched is ebay and newegg, I typed the model "lg-8164b" on google but obviously all I found was Wii results and not sales. Hope someone has a good link for me, it doesn't necessarily need to be this model, just the ones supported for Wii ripping/burning. Thanks in advance!

    im more confused now.

    if i buy this LG, does this mean i can put a Wii disc into my comp, and it'll be read, and i can burn an image of it using alcohol?
    or does it mean that i need this to burn wii backups (which i dont understand because it seems like a ROM, not a RW)?

    If you buy this type of LG drive then you can dump/rip wii discs using Rawdump

    To burn an image, you can use any dvd drive you want.

    No that doesn't matter, they are only "colour/OEM or retail" indications [​IMG].

    Oh snap, I thought you had to have that brand of drive to BURN and RIP the backup, didn't know any dvd burner would work, that's good news for me...except my dvd burner doesn't do dual layer..DAMN!

    I thought I read elsewhere that you need dual layer to burn certain games, IE, Wario Ware, etc.
