    No, not yet. The PS3 and Wii game disc are in different format from all other previous iso type games.

    So, when you say "not yet," you mean someone will make a "backup" tool?

    Because... I need to "backup" lots of games

    Nah, joking. Every game I own is legitimate...

    Does the term, 'DVD-Backup' actualy stand up in court?

    The problem with making "backups" for Wii games is that the drive reads the disc from the outer edge to the centre. Whereas conventional drives read from the inner edge to the outer edge, so you would need a special drive that would read the disc properly, a cheap trick Nintendo has used to overcome people wanting to make "backups". They did this for GC aswell, hence the Wii's ability to play them.

    However this was gotten around pretty quickly after people realized there was demand for gamecube modifications. Don't know when we can play backups on our Wii's but I imagine it'll be done in the coming months. By the way, you can already make the backups but it takes an insane amount of time to do so with a tool someone/group made. No way of knowing if they work or not.

    here is a link to the process

    You can't play them yet, but backups are able to be made but we have no way of verifying if they actually work or not. Do a search on google for "nintendo wii development and hacking forums" first link should provide you with wii development information. Not sure what else you wanted elaborated on.

    I wonder if there will be a way to actually play the wii backups say by putting them on a SD card (if less than 2GB) with an iso loader for example?
