    Nope.
    Read the sticky and you would know that.
    You should own brawl already as it is a great game, I'm sure you have a "backup".

    No, it cannot read backups.

    There's no real excuse not to own Brawl anyway; totally worth it.

    I no longer owned any of my Wii games anymore (sold them all including Brawl after I hacked my original Wii), fortunately, there is one Video Rental place that still exists in the Midwest (don't ask me how they stay in business, I honestly don't know) known as Family Video, went in and rented two of the Lego games that work (it was a 2 for 1 deal, grabbed 2 for security reasons in case one way didn't work I could use the other) for a dollar for a single night, worked like a charm. As a little bonus I then ripped the two lego games to my Wii and vWii. Pretty great deal, don't know if this actually helps you though as I know rental places are pretty much all gone, but there is still the stubborn one here and there thats decided to stick around.

    Redbox is your friend usually. Or gamefly. Or you could go into a game store/store that sells games, as the Lego games are dirt-cheap.

    Burned discs don't work either, the sticky also has this information >.>
    Because anyone who says "backup" is most likely a pirate.
    I also don't see why anyone would sell their Wii games since the Wii U can play all of them, unless you didn't like the game that much. I still have Super Smash Bros Melee to this day and Brawl.
