Is it possible to backup Wii disks on a PC?
I have a 6 year old who doesn't understand that disks need to be cared for properly. ( I have both WinXP and Linux machines with CD/DVD writers.)
There are a couple ways of backing up Wii Discs using a PC. Both of them are not approved by Nintendo, because you need to modify your Wii software to play discs which are backups of the originals. There are four things that you will need on your Wii:
As a postscript, getting some of these things on your Wii can be really hard to do, because reasonably Nintendo has been trying to keep people from running their own software on the Wii for a while now. Make sure you read the guides for installing cIOS ESPECIALLY CAREFUL as you can BRICK YOUR WII, and maybe try to install something like BootMii which will make it easier to not screw up your Wii permanently first.
NOTE: This stuff should only be used to back up your own discs so that they do not get ruined by someone! I do not condone games piracy.
