Talking How to backup your Wii Games.

Here is a quick how-to backup your Wii Games. You will need a MOD CHIP to play your Wii backups.

First step in copying your games for backup purposes is to get the right software and hardware. You will need one of the following DVD drives to copy games (no others will work unfortunately).

1. You will need to buy one of these DVD Drives below:

LG-8164b
LG-8163b
LG-8162b
LG-8161b


2. You will need to download and install RAW DUMP 2.0
http://rapidshare.com/files/25002998/rawdump2.0.rar

3. You will place the Wii game into your drive and start the dump. This will create a game.iso file on your drive. This will take about 2.5 hours

4. You will then Burn the .ISO file to a DVD-R. Burn at 6x Speed or less. The slower the better. You can use DVD+R but it may cause your Wii to over work.

5. Place backup in your Modded Wii and Play!

DarkElf is an unknown quantity at this point

Umm, You really shouldn't post this, Because it is against the law even if you own the game to play a backup copy of it.

And like everyone knows NO ONE will follow this guide for backup purposes, They will most likely do it to play games illegally

Actually, it is perfectly fine if you do own the game. But you cant sell the backup, give the backup away. etc.

There was a huge legal document saying it was perfectly legal backing up your games/movies, but im too lazy to find it. lol. Anubis has it somewhere.

And example to this rule is the Dark Knight DVD. The DVD comes with its own backup disc with the original disc, so you can back it up on your comp.

Yep. It is perfectly legal to make backups of ANY digital media (Games, Music CDs, DVDs, etc). That was added to the Copyright Act in 1979 as anamendment. See 17 USC 117:
http://www.bitlaw.com/source/17usc/117.html

As long as you use it for archival purpose only (a.k.a. backup) and not sell it, it is legal.
The mod chip DOES void your hardware warranty though.

Lawyer Hax FTW!

Actually according to Nintendo FAQs it is illegal. It is only legal to own copies that you have purchased. If your game breaks or you need a backup, the only legal way would be buying it.

True, but that doesn't change the fact that a backup is legal.

Could you show me this law? My friend's husband (a lawyer himself) deals with several cases where backups are consistently proven illegal.

Is it a national law, or a state law?

As far as his explanation goes, copyright law provides the copyright holder the exclusive right to manufacture and distribute intellectual properties. By backing up a game, you're manufacturing an intellectual property.

It may be legal in some places, But in most it is considered illegal. Move to Canada if you want to legally pirate stuff.

Anubis, The thing you posted was for Computer...
