    I don't know if this is the right place, but is it illegal to burn a copy of a game YOU PERSONALLY OWN and put it on another disc as a backup copy? I want to do this because my copy of Twilight Princess is in really really bad shape! Thanks Tempers!~

    No, it isn't, as long as you use that backup disc ONLY and not just one of the USB and another on the disk.

    Depends on who you ask.

    In reality nobody's going to come to your house or anything over it.

    Technically illegal in many places, but like Rydian says if it's just for personal use no-one will care, not even the copyright holder (well they might a tiny bit).
