    If you create backups can original disk get damaged?

    so lets say i have smash bro brawls and i create a backup copy on my HDD
    can it damage the original copy ? or whether the original will have any changes to it ?

    (iam a noob)

    iam using usbloader btw

    also if i share games after i brought it is it still piracy ? e.g i buy a game back it up, lend it to my family/friends

    Creating a backup of a game does nothing to the original disc, but copies it to your harddrive or backup disc. As for the lending games out. I think it's piracy to have any backup of a game that you do not own. So if you were to lend them a game and they copy it, then it would be piracy.

    If you don't have the original then any copy you do have would be pirated. So for you to copy your own purchased game and then not need the original so you "lend" it to your family and friends would mean they are good but you are not. It is almost the same as your last post about renting and copying games. You still do not have the original in your posession so I would consider it piracy. If you were to delete your copy while they have it and reinstall it when you get it back then that is ok.

    You've asked this before but in a different way... I get the feeling that your trying to cover your butt because you plan on pirating games. You are concerned about if it leaves traces on your wii/the original disc your concerned about the renting it and backing it up then returning it without notice.. All your recent posts scream PIRATE... Im sorry but I this isnt anything that should be discussed so many different ways by one user in this forum.. Piracy is against forum rules that you should abide by... No offense to you but you can google you questions and find the answers you need.. Dont exploit this site.
