How To Copy Wii Games Using Your Computer And Burner

Feb 22, 2008
With the Nintendo Wii becoming so popular so quickly, we seem to be getting quite a few emails from people wondering if there is a way to copy Wii games on their computer. I thought it would be a good idea to go over how you can make exact backup copies of Wii games using the burner on your computer.

As you might already know you can't just use the same software you use to burn cds if you are trying to make a copy of a video game. Programs like Nero or Roxio are not able to copy Wii games.

Why is this?

Nintendo Wii games use a type of 'copyright protection' on them (as do all video games) which blocks your computer from being able to recognize or "make sense" of what is on the disc. Because your computer can't read the disc, it isn't able to know what it is supposed to be copying.

With this problem in mind, certain software companies set out to solve this issue by developing a program that is able to bypass these protections and allow your computer to read Wii games. By using this specialized software, all of a sudden video game discs "make sense" to your PC.

I should point out that this software isn't only for copying Wii games. You can also use it to make copies of xbox 360, PS3 and all other video games that are on a disc.

We did put a link at the bottom of this article where you can find out how to get a free trial of this type of software.

Although the technology behind these programs is complex, using the program is a snap. You just put the Wii game into your disk drive, let your computer make an "image" of it, and then insert a blank CD-R or DVD-R that your computer than copies the image onto.

It's a great feeling to be able to copy Wii games using your computer and your burner. This gives you a way to backup all of your existing games and make copie of any other Wii game you pick up. Enjoy!
