Topic: Dumping Wii Games

I thought this can be worked on by the Wii dumpers so new people can have a nice guide to follow. If you know a way to dump it properly via SD card please add it here. Especially how to find version number for the SD method! Once complete maybe a Mod can make a clean one and lock it.


"Use a LG-8164b or LG-8163b or LG-8162b or LG-8161b dvd drive. It might even work with other hitachi drives with GDR in their name (just try, but don't complain)."

RawDump 2.0 (Needs .net Framework 2.0 installed)

Step 1. - Start Rawdump 2.0 first
Step 2. - Put Wii disc into optical drive and click start dump
Step 3. - Check size, has to be 4,699,979,776 bytes
Step 4. - Redump the game and check size.
Step 5. - Compare checksums and if match report it to redump.org

(I don't know what the consensus is on the internet about having to dump twice if the game matches the exact size it should be good, I just dump it twice as you can get the same size with other system disc but different checksums.)


FriiDump 0.3.0 (Image is put in the FriiDump 0.3.0 folder)

Step 1. - Install FriiDump 0.3.0
Step 2. - Open cmd
Step 3. - Go to folder C:\Program Files\FriiDump 0.3.0
Step 4. - type in friidump -d <drive Letter>: -a
Step 5. - Check size, has to be 4,699,979,776 bytes
Step 6. - Redump the game and check size.
Step 7. - Compare checksums and if match report it to redump.org

No one has any other ways to dump wii games to share?

Three years and still going strong.
