    Banned
    dont know if im allowed to post his so sorry mods if not.

    i have just backed up all my wii games and am going to put them away as my kids keep scratching them, better for them to scratch a 23p copy rather than the £30+ original,

    now the question can you make a backup of a backup wii game and if so what is the best program to use

    help will be repped

    many thanks for that but that program just creates an image file, i already have the image file but my hard disc space is at a premium and i need these to be kept elsewhere, i thought if i made a master copy then if needed copy it from that. i have tried to copy the img file onto disc but its too big,

    any ideas?

    When you want another copy of the game, if you have a "master" copy burned off from one of your images, if you had deleted those images, you'd have to read the "master" copy to an img again to burn it..

    you would need to then burn that image file onto a cd.

    Yea that Easy Backup Program is a scam, doesn't do as it says it would.

    Basically you'll need to have your wii chipped to start off with.
    To actually make an image of a wii disc you'll need a specific DVD reader to read the disks, or you could just download them.
    Making the disc is the same as burning a DVD.

    When you burn you downloaded img files to DVD, why not do a second copy straight after, and keep them somewhere else out of reach of the kids.... that's what I do :thumbsup:

    This is the method I used

    Takes a while to make the image, but saves you money in the long run.
    I had a "pic chip" installed in my wii, stopped working with the newer games, so I sold it. Also there are few descent games out.

    if you just installed the ISOs on an external drive and use USB Loader, then the kids wouldn't be able to scratch them cos there wouldn't be any discs

    You already have your master as in your original disk.

    Why not just re rip them if your backup gets scratched? its not as though you are going to have to rip 100 at a time, just one every now and again.
