As a Wii hardcore gamer, have you ever encounter the following occasions: some few adult games, weak online community, and lack of DVD movie collections playback on the Wii console? Your Wii discs get some serious scratches, totally damaged or lost? Is it possible that we can burn Nintendo Wii games to DVD discs? Yes, we can do it perfectly if you just have read this post. The Nintendo Wii can be modified to play copies of games that have been burned onto a DVD on a computer. The modification does not require opening up the Wii and so, while it voids the warranty, it can be reversed at a later time without incident. No special skills are needed, although you will have to first download some programs. Below we will show you some programs that can help burn Nintendo Wii Game to DVD, Brasero, InfraRecorder and Leawo DVD Creator.
Part 1: Preparation
At first, as we are supposed to burn and back up Nintendo Wii games and play a burned games or movies, what we need is to install a backup manager software.
1. DVDs (or an external hard disk)
2. Some kinds of DVD Creator(Brasero, InfraRecorder and Leawo DVD Creator)
Part 2: Burn Xbox Nintendo Wii Games Using Brasero
Brasero is an application to burn CD/DVD for the Gnome Desktop, which is designed to be as simple as possible and has some unique features to enable users to create their discs easily and quickly. It is reported that it supports multiple backends: cdrtools, growisofs and libburn (optional). This maximizes hardware compatibility with a large range of different writing devices. Check out below how to burn Xbox Nintendo Wii Games using Brasero.
In general, if you are using the GNOME desktop, Brasero would be installed by default. Just go to Applications > Sound & Video, then you cannot miss the Brasero Disc Burner entry. If not, you will have to install the application. This is simple if you follow these steps:
Step 1. Open up your package manager (i.e. Synaptic, gnome-packagekit, Ubuntu Software Center, etc), search for “brasero”, mark the resulting Brasero entry for installation. Next, just hit Apply to start the installation.
Step 2. Now you can insert a blank disc, either a Nautilus or Brasero window will open. Not long later, you will get a complete menu (as opposed to when you just insert a blank CD/DVD – more on that later). From this menu, you can create audio, data, and video CDs as well as copy discs.
Step 3. From the main window, you can click the Data Project Button, which will open a data project-specific window where you can begin to add your files. Generally, there are two ways to add files to your project. First, you can click the “+” button, navigate to your files (or directories), and click Add in the navigation window. The other method is to open a Nautilus window, navigate to where your files are held, and drag and drop said files/directories into the Brasero window.
Step 4. Name your disc by replacing the text with the desired name. Just erase that text and add your data-specific text.
Step 5. When you are done with this window, you can just click the Burn button and Brasero will begin the burn process. Depending upon the size of your burn and the speed of your hardware, the burn process time will vary.
