The demand for games for the Wii console is
increasing all the time, so more people buy their games. You know that Wii
games tend to be pretty expensive, so I bet that you would hate to scratch a
disc and lose all that money. In this article Iíll try to explain how you can
make a backup of your Wii games.
The first thing you need to do is look at the local laws about copyright. You
can usually make a backup of a Wii game, if you already have the original game.
You also need to do the backups for your own use, and not borrow them to
anyone. This is usually the situation, but you need to know for sure, so find
out what the local law is. There is no point in going to jail because you
wanted to do a backup of your games right?
You obviously canít copy a game by using the Wii console, so you need a PC to
do it for you. The type of DVD
drive you need matters, so make sure you get a DVD
drive from the LG816 series. I recommend one of these: 8163b, 8162b or 8161b.
Google should get you all the information you need on this matter. A fast
search will provide you with the needed information, and Ebay can be a good
source for one of these drives.
Besides the LG DVD drive you will
also need a software called Easy Backup Wizard. You will use this software to
create an image of the Wii game DVD.
Your first step would be to put the DVD
in the drive. Next, start the Easy Backup Wizard software and load the DVD. It will take some time for the ISO file to be
created, so be patient. This ISO file is the backup of the game, stored on your
computer. Next, check the properties of the file and find out what size it is.
It needs to be 4.7 Gb in size, the same as a game DVD.
Your next step would be to burn the new DVD,
with the backup of the Wii game. You can use any piece of software to burn the DVD. Make sure you use a good quality DVD when you do the backup.
