    My cousin, has a Wii. I don't, so I'm not really sure of the process on how to backup games.

    Once I get an ISO, do I just need to burn it to a disc? (Using like 2.0x as it reduces read errors or something)

    Is there anything I need to add to the disc to get it to run? I know he has an NTSC wii, but I don't know what modchip he has (if it matters what modchip he has please tell me).


    Also, since he has an NTSC wii, can he only play NTSC games? Can he play PAL games too? Is there something I need to add to PAL games to get it to run (safely, I don't wnat to be blamed for breaking his wii) on an NTSC wii?

    I'd very much appreciate any help you guys can give me.

    Happy Holidays.

    It would be a better present to have the original games instead of a burned DVD that he can easily get on his own.

    And if he has a modchip, I'd really just forget about the whole Wii idea and do something else.

    Pretty stupid idea if you ask me. He has a chip, so he probably can get any game he wants. So backups seems pretty cheap ass gift.

    Right behind you
    Agreeing with above, if he has a modchip he probably already has all the games he wants.

    dude, get him some accessories. such as, a different zapper, racer wheel, or second controller. also, what would happen if you get backups for him and they dont work. you cant really test them before you give them to him. for the cost of an accessory you can also get him a 100 spool of verbatim dvd-r's. those will absolutely get used.

    I'd stay away from the RW. They're supposed to be bad for the Wii. Please don't flame me for that because I've seen lots of topics about discs where there's tons of flaming! [​IMG]

    I agree with this notion 100%. If anything, give him some blank DVDs or an accessories like the Wii Speak Mic.

    Like they have already said, just buy him abunch of CD-R's or get him some of the accessories that you normally would get with the game, like the Wii Speak or Zapper.

    Rechargeable batteries are cheap, if he doesn't have any it can be a good idea.

    Or an inkjet printer that prints direct to printable media, so he can have some cool looking backups. [​IMG]

    Get him 2 wii pistols and a partridge in a pear tree. for real, i got a friend who came to me too get the back up channel (he isn't tech savvy). and he is talking about getting me to burn him some wii backups for his kid for Christmas. i am going to write from me on the disks in perm marker lol. for real that is cheap. don't be a Christmas pirate scrooge. get over to gamestop and get him something used. thats what Christmas is all about!! i like the new eii sensor bars with the auto shut off vs the nyko bar just having the alarm. they are only 14bucks!!

    Merry Christmas everyone!!! Feliz Navidad!!

    Nothing says "Christmas" like the gift of some ripped-off software on a crappy DVD-R with the the title written on it in black marker in the givers' crappy wavy handwriting...

    Man, you are pure class. I'm glad you're not related to me. [​IMG]
