Hi - I've been sent here by my daughter
I'm a bit of a computer addict but I don't play games, because I'm useless at them. Years ago when Tomb Raider came out I had a go but never go out of the first level, so that was the end of my gaming career!
However, I have a five year old grandson who has a Wii and a daughter who is going bankrupt having to buy new games because they end up scratched within no time. So my daughter asked me to find out how his games can be backed up and played.... so here I am.
I will be mooching around for a while reading and trying to take in the the informaton and advice kindly provided by the experienced members. Once i have some understanding it will be time to give it a go and no doubt there will be further questions from me.
So thanks to everyone who helps us newbies out and thanks to the people who created the community
