    My wii stopped reading original wii games discs (all of my discs), however, it is able to read and play gamecube minidiscs. This started a few days ago.

    Is there a way to rip the game to a external HDD without using the wii?,

    thanks for any ideas

    The odds of you having such a drive is very very small though. Its only 1 or 2 specific LG devices that work, and I doubt they are even made anymore.

    Sounds like your laser is having issues reading the outer parts of a disc, since the mini-discs are working. If you are willing to open it up you could do so and check the mechanics. Maybe somethings just stuck.
