With the Nintendo Wii being one of the most popular consoles in the World, it’s no wonder that a lot of people are looking to protect their Wii games, that are in DVD format. Unfortunately, these games are prone to getting damaged and scratched, making it imperative that you are able to keep them protected… and the best way to do that is to make a copy and use that. However, it’s notoriously difficult to copy Wii games thanks to all the protection Nintendo use.
The problem with the Wii is that since it uses DVDs instead of cartridges, your games are prone to getting scratched… and many people have the ability to copy the games. This lead Nintendo to use a lot of copyright protection on their games, making it difficult to copy them illegally. However, it also made them incredibly difficult to copy your legally owned games as well, making it hard to back them up.
The protection that Nintendo uses สล็อต on its games is known as encryption. This is where Nintendo create a special “language” which only the Wii and Nintendo can understand. They then translate all the game data into this language so that when you put the disc into your PC to copy it, it appears to be a jumbled mess. This means that if you want to copy Wii games, you need to get your PC to be able to read this encrypted language, so that it can copy the discs.
This encryption is the reason why many people buy mod chips for the Wii. Because if you use a disc that isn’t encrypted, the Wii console will just ignore it because it thinks it’s been illegally copied. This means that in order to play Wii games on your console without a mod chip, you just need to be able to copy the Wii discs perfectly, on a 1:1 basis…. and as you might have guessed, this is an incredibly hard thing to do; thanks to the fact that there are hardly any tools / techniques that can read Nintendo’s encryption.
