Here’s How To Copy Wii Games and How To Use Game Copying Software

One of the most common questions is how to copy Wii games. There’s a lot of people who want to be able to copy their games but aren’t entirely sure how to go about it. There’s a lot of misinformation about how it’s done, so today we’ll cover how to copy your games.

Just a heads up, you will need to install a specific type of game copying software on your computer. This is needed so that your computer can actually read the Wii games that you put in the burner.

All Nintendo Wii games come with a form of copyright protection on the actual game disc. Because of this protection, your computer isn’t able to actually read the data from the game and this prevents it from making a copy.

That’s why if you ever tried to burn Wii games with the same software used to copy audio cds it didn’t work. They just don’t have the technology to be able to get past the guards that you find on all video games.

As a way to get around these copyright guards companies have designed software that is able to get by any protections on the discs. By installing one of these softwares, your computer then becomes capable of copying Wii games.

These programs are easy to use, you really only press a few buttons and the program does the rest. It’s a quick installation and then you’re ready to go.

You will insert the game disc, wait about 5 minutes and then insert a blank disc. In the end you’re left with a perfect copy.

On my computer the whole process takes about 15 minutes. My computer is about two years old so I’m sure it’s even faster on the newer systems.

Of course we aren’t encouraging readers to go and copy games that they don’t actually own. Our hope is that people use this information and these programs only to copy games that they own and not burn copyrighted material.

Now some programs are better than others obviously. My biggest suggestion is to find a program with a money back guarantee. This way you know that the company that sells it is confident in their product and also that you don’t have to worry if you run into any problems.

Make Copies of Video Games and Save the Original

I remember when I was little and I was first introduced to a computer. Later that year, Santa Clause brought me a CD with one hundred games. Simple games with bad graphics, but oh how much I loved them. From brick breaker to ace shooter, and from bowling to pool, that CD seemed to have it all. Until the day my CD-ROM would not open anymore. How terrified I was when I had to unscrew the CD-ROM and try to pull it out manually. Unfortunately I succeeded in breaking it into two pieces.

I was young then but I still remember how much that episode hurt. The computer lost meaning for me without those games. What was the point of turning on the computer when I couldn’t play Pac Man or shoot down space invaders? I did not remember the name of the CD and since I still don’t have close relations with Santa Clause, the chances of ever tracking it down are very dim.

The morale of the story is that this personal nightmare maybe could not have been avoided. The CD-ROM got stuck and maybe that was meant to happen. Maybe there was no way the CD would have come out ‘alive’. But one thing could have changed the whole aftermath, another CD. A copy of the original, so that even though the first one broke, I still had the back up. Since then I grew up and also got smarter. I make copies of all my favorite games and I play them, while keeping the original safe, just in case something goes wrong.
