Hi,

Based on what I read in the past, NO computer drives can read WII games.

Exceptionally there is a few OLD drives from LG that can, but it didn't take long for those to be discontinued.

So you may find one on Ebay for LOTS of money.

Now with that said, even if you do purchase this specific drive (Google it, I forgot the model) you will need to read with with Raw Reader, or Raw Dumper (Again forget the name of the software).

Then and only then the image will be valid.

Then to play those copies, you will need to modofy with a WII Key, and I heard rumours that if you upgrade the WII firmware those will stop working.

So Blindwrite will not be of any help to backup your WII games.

correction: the DRIVE can't read the disc.
Even if you'd have the perfect, best (designed byBill Gates ^^) copy-software, you won't be able to make any backups without one of the few drives...

Did you read the previous posts? PC drives are unable to read those discs.

Blindwrite was written to copy PC Games at the time and remove/emulate some protections on the CD medias.

It was never build to copy Hard Console Games (PS2/PS3/WII/XBox)
