How To Play Copied Games On Wii
Do you know how to play copied games on Wii? Games burned onto a DVD are only one type of copied Wii games your console can run. It can also play game files from an SD card in case your computer lacks the capability to burn Wii games. All you need is a special piece of software and you can play your copied Wii games any time you want.
Items You'll Need:
- Homebrew channel
- SD card
- SD card adapter
- Blank DVD (optional)
- Download the homebrew channel onto an SD card. This software is available from a number of websites, such as: hbc.hackmii.com/ and wiihomebrew.com. Follow the site's specific instructions to properly download the files. Instructions may vary depending on where you download the software from.
- Insert the SD card into your Nintendo Wii using an SD card adapter. Open the homebrew channel file. A black screen with plain white text should appear. At the top, it will give the name of the program version you're installing and below that, it will say "Main Menu." Under the "Main Menu" section, click the "Install" option and follow the onscreen instructions to install the program. If this menu does not appear, try reinstalling the file on your SD card and try again. If asked to load your file when the Wii first turns on, make sure to click "Yes." The homebrew channel should appear after you choose "Install" and allow it time to properly install on your Wii. If not, turn the Wii off and back on. Select the homebrew channel once the menu screen loads.
- Copy your game file on the SD card or onto a blank DVD. Several sites offer places to download copies of your games, such as: http://tehparadox.com/ or the thepiratebay.com. Keep in mind, however, the legality of the products on websites like these.
- Insert the SD card or DVD into the Nintendo Wii. Load the homebrew channel and select your copied Wii game. It should start playing after a few seconds.
Remember that downloading games you do not have an original copy of is illegal. Copied games are for the purpose of making backups of a game you own and have already paid for. If you lose or break the game, you may be able to find a copy online to replace your old game. Note also that installing the homebrew channel may void your warranty. Contact Nintendo or consult your Wii owner's manual to find out the specific terms and conditions of your warranty.
