    I think I lost my manual (or too lazy to look for it) - maybe the answer is there. Is there a way to download games I have on disk to channels on the console? My disks are getting scratched up by constantly inserting, ejecting into the console. It would be ideal if I could just download/save all the games I have onto the console like a PC so I no longer have to deal with disks.
    Thanks to anyone who can help with my dilemma!

    Nope. That would be a good idea though with the new SDHC support.

    The only way theyd become damaged doing that is if your Wiis disc drive is faulty or if you dont look after your discs

    Total bummer - thanks for the replies. It's my children and their small, sticky fingers that like to manhandle the games - almost destroyed the WiiSports disk. I wish, at least that one, should come loaded on the console. Isn't it a universal disk that comes with the Wii as default anyway?

    There is Nintendos Wiiware
    You download the Wiiware games on too the console

    Other than that you could lock the Wii in a box so they cant get at it

    The games will take up to much memory
    The Wii only has a pity full 512mb where as DVDs are 4+gig

    512 ?

    I didn't realize the console had such a small memory.Maybe in the future it'll be an upgraded model.

    Yeah, like Prin said I'd download some WiiWare and Virtual Console titles from the Wii Shop Channel if that was the case. You can find some really good games on there. And some classic old-school games from your childhood :lol:

    Nar The big N haven't said anything about it and they have yet to allow any kind of External hard drive.
    But I dont think they would allow people to save full disc games on it as people will abuse it.

    Teach them how to handle the disks properly. My father taught me not to touch the bottom of the disk. I haven't touched it since.
