How to Make Backups of Your Wii Games Easily

As the Wii gets increasingly popular, and demand for it goes up, an inevitable question starts to surface – To Burn Wii games or not to?

Wii games are expensive, so can you imagine the pain if you accidentally scratch your latest Wii game disc, and you have only played it for a few times? Continue reading to discover how to create backups by burning Wii Games.

But before you get yourself involved, it is important that you know the copyright laws in your area. Make sure that it is perfectly legal for you to burn Wii games, as long as you own the original, and that you will only be using the copies for personal reasons.

First, you will need to use the your computer and a special kind of DVD drive in order to get it to work. Some examples include the LG-816 series, namely 8161b, 8162b, or 8163b. If you are unsure, you can always search for these DVD drives on Google. You will be able to get tons of information there. And when you have located the disc drives and are wondering where to get them, you could check out your nearby computer store or buy it online via eBay or any electronics site.

Next, you have to make an image of your game disc, before you can starting burning the games. Besides the DVD drive, you’ll need to set up some software called .net Framework 2.0, and Raw Dump 2.0.

Then, the next thing to do is to put your game your LG DVD Drive. When it’s in, open the Raw Dump file (should have been created after installation) and double click on the rawdump.exe file to start the rawdump program.

Once rawdump is open, there will be a dialog box that appears. Click on the button that says Start Dump, and you’ll before long be ready to burn Wii games. The time taken to burn the games varies and is largely dependent on the size of the files on the DVD, and the speed of your computer. Waiting time can range from anything between 1 hour to up to 5 hours, if your computer is slow.

Once that is done, you should see a fresh ISO file in the rawdump folder, having the same name as the game that you have copied. To explain in non-jargon, an ISo file is basically a identical image of what had been on the disc previously.

The last 2 parts of the procedure are likely the simplest things you are required to do when you burn Wii games. First, once the dump is done, right click on the fresh file and click “Properties”. Look out for the size of the file. All Wii Games ISOs are 4.7 Gb in size, which is the size on a blank DVD, which means that the image dump has copied everything from the disc. If the size is different from this, you would need to begin the process again, as it is simply not possible to burn Wii games if the ISO file sizes are wrong.

Once the size of the file is right, what you are required to complete the burning of the Wii games is to get a preferable burning software, start up a new project, and get it to burn the ISO image file onto a new blank DVD. I recommend using better qulity discs here, as low quality discs could compromise on the games and sometimes the games could end up being unreadable.

Now that you have burned your Wii games, how do you play them? There are two ways here – Either get your Wii fitted with a modchip, or you could choose to modify your SD card. Both methods are discussed on many sites on the net, so you can do a search for those tutorials. As you have just read, it is definitely possible to burn Wii games, but do be sure to check out your local laws and regulations.

If that is too much work for you, there are Wii Download Sites that allow you unlimited games downloads for a one time membership free. Those sites are becoming very popular because of the unlimited access and the variety of games and media available. Check out this review to find the site that offers the best Wii Downloads offer!
