  • Step 1 Find a DVD-ROM drive that is specifically designed to backup Wii games. One high quality and inexpensive drive capable of backing up Wii games is the LG GDR-8164B, which can be found at for a reasonable price. Other compatible drives are the LG-8163b, the LG-8162b and the LG-8161b. It is crucial that you purchase the correct drive. otherwise the backup process will not work properly.
  • Step 2 Install the drive onto your computer following manufacturer's instructions. Once this is complete you need to download the following software applications: Raw dump 2.0, net Framework 2.0 and WinRar.
  • Step 3 Complete the installation process for the applications. Right click on the Rawdump.rar icon and select "Extract to rawdump2.0\" in order to make a desktop folder called "Rawdump."
  • Step 4 Insert your Wii game into the LG drive you installed. Once the game is in the drive, double click the "Rawdump" folder on your desktop. After the folder has opened, double click the Rawdump.exe icon to initiate the process.
  • Step 5 Watch for Rawdump to open an interface window in which one option is "Start Dump." Select the "Start Dump" option and sit back and relax, as the process can take up to a few hours.
  • Step 6 Check the size of the file created once the dump is complete. Do this by opening the directory that contains the Rawdump.exe file. You will find your dump file labeled with the name of the game and a .ISO extension. Right click the ISO file, choose properties and check the file size. The file size should be exactly 4.37 GB (4,699,979,776 bytes). If there is any deviation from this norm the dump process did not complete properly and needs to be redone.
  • Step 7 Open a DVD/CD burning software such as Nero. If, like Nero, the software automatically opens a "Create disc" dialog, cancel out of it so that you can begin the process manually. Choose a "Burn disc" option in the burn software and select the ISO image that you dumped into your Rawdump directory. Begin burning at a relatively slow speed for your first try.

    My nintendo wii will not play wii games, but my wii will play gamecube games. Every time I play a wii game the error message keep coming up

    1. go to the wii settings.
    2. go to the last page.
    3. chose "wii system memory format"

    this should put the wii back to factory settings, and make the wii games work again.

    How to Rip Nintendo Wii Games: VIDEO GUIDE OPEN HERE>>>

    If you want to rip, or back up, games for your Nintendo Wii, it's not going to be easy. Nintendo Wii and Gamecube disks both spin in the opposite direction from normal disks to prevent them from being ripped. But there is a way to get around this by ripping the game directly from the Wii onto an SD card.

    Step 1 Make sure your Wii is modified with a Wiikey. Without one, you will not be able to rip games for it. You can have Wiikey installed for you, or install it yourself.
  • Step 2 Plug in the Gecko adapter and SD card into your Wii's Gamecube memory card slot. It will then ask you to load a disk.
  • Step 3 Load whatever Wii or Gamecube game you want to rip. It will save the files on the SD card, but the card is too small to fit the whole game. Once it has dumped all the information it can hold, you must remove the SD card and put the files on your computer. Erase the card and put it back in the memory card slot and continue copying the game's information. For a Wii game you will have to do this three times.
  • Step 4 Once you have the entire game on your computer, they will be in usually three separate pieces. Combine them into one file.
  • Step 5 Burn the game file onto a 4.7 GB DVD disk and play it on your Wii. Due to the Wii's protection software, only modified Wii's can play ripped Wii games.

    My wii fit disc will not work

    What error number does the Wii give?
    Anyway, you can troubleshoot a little to solve the problem:
    Are you running the latest Wii firmware? (You can update system software somewhere in the options)
    Is the Wii FIt disk an original and not a copy? If it's a copy, you'll need an original or homebrew software to run te game.
    Have you tried cleaning the isk and the tray it needs to go in? (if possible?)

    These should fix your problem!

    I had the same problem. I called wii support (1800-255-3700) and they gave me the solution. Some new games include a wii update that must be installed before the game will work. Insert the disk. When the wii menu comes up point the wii remote at the spinning disc and click A. Follow the instructions for installing the update. Your game will work once the update completes.

    Mario Kart no start up

    if you have upgraded your software on your wii, your freeloader won't work anymore. Mario carts is written in a way to stop people using programs such as freeloader. Its something called signed trucha, other people will not more. You could try buying a UK mario cart on ebay and trying that. Otherwise, looking into getting it mod chipped to overcome the region barriers. But always buy original games for it

    I cannot make the second remote sync.

    after you enter the game, do the following: (must admit it took me some time to figure it out)
    1. hit on home button on wii-mote to bring up wii menu
    2. choose remote setting and setup the extra remote(s) you want to use in the game
    3. now your extra remote(s) are recognized.
    you can now go back to the game and choose multi-user mode
