    hey a friend of mine gave me a disc of a bunch of nes roms. My question is if i find this game on the vc, would i be able to take these roms off of an sd card and put them on my wii?

    No
    In order to legaly use roms you need a copy of the game

    And the ROMs you can find won't run on the Wii. You'd have to pay to download them on the Virtual Console.

    No, because the games you download from the channel include the emulator built into the rom. You can't put roms from your PC on there. Just use an emulator.

    Actually you can run roms on the wii but it requires a little bit of hacking. Also I found a site where you can download vc games from rapidshare and put them on your wii. I won't say where because I'm not sure if it's against the rules here.

    I think there is a loophole somewhere.

    Emulating consoles is legal, but the roms are illegal.

    Nintendo makes it clear that they hate all roms

    Roms are only legal under the condition that you own the original game and you back them up your self and do not distribute them or give them away in any manor united states law says you can have one backup copy of any software which you own a license to and nothing else.

    And actually some US court said you can't even backup ROMs yourself, since they will "never break" there is no need for a backup... :mad5:

    Man what a bunch of babies. :lol

    You can only play your roms on your PC right now. I play NES roms on my Gameboy advanced with a programmable cart and an emulator.
