I need custom firmware to backup Wii

Hey Guys… I have read a lot about cross flashing firmwares and just custom firmware in general. I have a Philips DVD8801. From what I understand, the best drives for backing up Wii games are LG. Can I used the firmware from a LG GDR-8164B to flash my drive? If so, please explain how. Thanks

a much better choice is using USB Loader instead of disc.

you can dump your games to a hard drive through the wii. no disc to handle, load the games directly from the hard drive.
