Ok, so I'm stuck in Afghanistan right now. I don't have a Wii, but I DO have access to some Wii games. I have also been messing around with Dolphin to learn what it can do since I've never used it. Now, I don't have the ability to just pop games into a Wii, back them up, transfer them to my Mac, and then use them in Dolphin. SO, I started doing some searching. I found WiiOSX. But there's a problem......it won't read retail discs. So I searched some more..... The same guy who made WiiOSX made WiiOSX Tool. In one section of his website (http://chris-fletcher.com/projects/), it says it will make your Mac able to read retail Wii discs (or at least not kick them out so other programs such as WiiOSX can read them to back them up): trying to download directly from the link in the section that states this fails. Finding another section of his website that mentions this file (http://chris-fletcher.com/tag/tricks/) it does not state anything about the tool allowing your Mac to read the disc, but the download link here works. I downloaded this software, and surprise surprise, it is not making my Mac read the Wii discs. So, long story (not so) short, I need to find a tool (or tools), preferably for Mac, that will allow my Mac to directly backup RETAIL Wii discs for me to use with Dolphin. Worst case scenario, if I have to, I can try any programs needed on my Windows Virtual Machine, though no promises it will work if the Mac wants to kick the disc out anyways. Thanks for any help you can offer.
