If You’re Not Backing Up Your Wii Games, You’re Taking a Huge Risk

Learning how to copy Wii games opens up new worlds and new vistas just brimming with possibilities. Anyone who owns a game console knows how pricey Wii games can be. I recently spent $65 on Epic Mickey! And that is one of the most important reasons to make backups of your entire game collection. In fact, you should be backing up each game as soon as you get it home from the store. Another major plus, which is related, is that when you start making copies, you can go in on the cost of discs with your friends. Picture it: 4 of you chip in on that $60 dollar game, and then make copies for each of you. All of a sudden, the price looks much more affordable! Yet another benefit, if you need one: You no longer have to worry about broken or scratched games.

When you’ve done this, there is no reason to go out and blow your hard earned dough on an additional copy of a game that you’ve already spent hard earned money on. To get started in your new game copying pursuits, there are a few items that you’ll need to gather. First, you’ll need a Wii console. You’ll also, obviously, need a Wii game to copy! Next, you need a PC or Mac with a CD or DVD burner. You’ll also need a game copy application, as well as a blank disc. When you’ve gathered those items, you’re ready to start copying.

The game copying application that I mentioned is probably the most critical component when it comes to ensuring game copying success. The companies that make games are getting smarter all the time when it comes to encrypting their games to prevent copying. While making copies for personal use is legal, the manufacturers don’t have to make it easy. And this is where the game copy apps come in. They help you to not only burn the disc in a format that the Wii will think is an original disc; they also get past the encryption. Simply do a search on Google and you should be able to find this software.

Regardless of the software, it ought to work on any discs. Some are made for any video game consoles while others are designed solely for the Nintendo Wii. In addition, the application may or may not be able to handle foreign games. Certain software versions will even make it possible for individuals to make copies of movie DVDs, music CDs, and other encrypted files. Once again, you just need to do your due diligence.

It is of critical importance that your PC or Mac has a drive with the ability to read Wii games. Not 100% are able to, but so long as you are using a somewhat new computer, there should not be an issue. If you’ve ever watched a DVD on your computer, then you can rest assured that there is a good possibility you own a pretty good drive.

Once you decide which game copy software you’re going to buy, you’ll need to pay for it, download it, and install it. Just double click the .exe file that you downloaded, and hit “next” every time that it prompts you, so that you are taking all of the defaults. Run the app after the installation, and insert your Wii disc. The app will walk you through the copy process.

When you do the actual copy, the procedure isn’t too complicated either. It will present you with a wizard that will take you, step by step, through the process.

Copying Wii games shouldn’t be difficult. As you can see from this article, it isn’t difficult at all when you have game copy software. The software will pay for itself time and again as you’re saved from having to replace games that get lost or broken. So go find some game backing up software right now, and protect your game library!
