If you are getting this drive you know what you are going to do with it. It's the one you get if you want to "backup" your games and those of your "closest" friends. It works great for that but there is an easier way, the newest version of USB Loader allows you to rip directly from the Wii.

It is true that this drive works with rawdump to create ISOs of GCN and Wii games. I've already ripped one of my [legally-bought] games with it.

It is a rather old model (made in 2004), but that's not much of a problem. I did have to buy an IDE cord in order to connect it to my motherboard, which cost about $9. I would recommend opening your computer's tower and checking to see if it has an IDE cord already, otherwise you will have to buy one separate.

I am very happy with my purchase. It cost me a total of $23 dollars (drive + tax + IDE) in order to play GCN and Wii games on my computer using Dolphin.

I just bought a used Dell computer, and this DVD-ROM was installed - may be original, maybe not. It seems to work just fine but makes a loud whirring noise on spin-up of the disk. A joke... I just wasted half an hour trying to make it write a CD, and then lookup up the details... it is just a reader. Hehe.

I bought this drive and it has gave me good service. Working on used desktop computers is a hobby of mine and most of the time I wipe the hard drive clean and reinstall the Operating System, and to make this go smooth and trouble free you need a good drive, that is fast enough to get the job done and this 16x DVD-ROM Drive reads CDs at 52x, and when I am working on a machine that needs the OS reinstalled I just remove the drive thats in the machine and put this drive in and it always does a good job, you can just tell by the sound of it that its faster than most drives, and after the files get installed from the disc onto the hardrive and the OS installation is complete I remove this drive and put the original drive back in. Thats what I bought it for and I am pleased with it, It has been a usefull tool for me, and its price is resonable to so basically its a good drive and its cheap,I have nothing bad to tell about it.
