I can think of millions of reasons why you should learn how to copy Wii games. I'll keep things simple, however, and only discuss 3 of them here.
Have you ever had to replace a game that you already owned? Did it become scratched or damaged, or even just come up missing? Game discs are pricey. I've paid up to $57 for just one game. There is no reason to purchase the same game more than once. So if you learn how to copy Wii games, then you are simply being smart and saving money, so that you don't have to shell out over and over again just to play the same game.
Additionally, Wii games are very fragile. When I was a teenager, games came on what we called "cartridges". These were nearly indestructable. However, the game companies now put them on CDs which, as we all know, can easily be damaged simply by dropping them, stepping on them, or leaving them lying out.
With games in a cartridge format, you could allow your toddler aged siblings mess around with the games and even bite them and nothing would happen to them. But you wouldn't dream of doing this with your Wii games, correct? They're far too easily damaged. Remember this when mulling over whether it's 100% necessary to copy your games. When you make copies, then solely use the copies when you're "getting your game on", you won't have to worry so much, because you know that the master disc is put up in a safe place.
On a final note, have you ever lost a Wii game? I mean, friends love to borrow them right? But then have you ever had it occur where they claim to have "lost" the game and never return or pay you for it? I've had this happen more than once, and it's caused a strain in my friendship afterwards. Now, though, I just burn a fresh copy if a friend ever wants to borrow a disc. And, let's face it, we've all lost discs on our own right? I mean, they're not the biggest units - they're easily misplace. Well, as long as the master is put up for safe keeping, you won't have to worry about this after you start burning games!
So - what is the process of copying a game like? I mean, can't you just burn one the way that you burn a music CD? Simply put, the answer is a definite "no". If you've ever tried it, you'll know what I'm talking about. The process is actually more akin to what it takes to copy a movie DVD. This is because the companies that make the games put encryption on them so that you won't be able to make copies. Of course, it's completely legal and lawful for you to backup your games (at least in the US). But the game companies aren't required to allow it.
The entire process takes about 11 minutes once you get the application installed. What application, you ask? A special application that you need to install onto your computer. You install it, and then insert your game disc into your computer's disc drive. Then, the program automatically rips the game. It will prompt you to put in a blank disc. It detects it, and completely on it's own, starts burning you a copy. Easy peasy!
The one thing that you should definitely take away from this article is to always make a backup of your games as soon as you get them home.
