Unfortunately, most video games are stored in CD/DVD-ROM formats, making them vulnerable to damage

Harsh economic times have forced families to be more frugal in their spending. Gone are the days of impulsive buying, and throwing house parties every time one hears good news. This is why steps should be taken to protect video games like Play Station, the Xbox 360 and Wii from Gamecube ROMs damage or theft if one happens to have acquired any of these rare games: either by personal investment or as a gift. These games are a God-send, as they provide family entertainment when parents do not otherwise have the disposable income to treat their children to an outing.

To spare this now, very important family commodity from any damages, video game collectors should seriously consider backing-up their games on to blank discs, putting away the originals, and playing from a copy disc in the future. They can do this by purchasing video game copy software either on disc at a computer store or online.

People have often wondered if they are doing something illegal when they try copying CDs and DVDs. The practice of copying or “burning” discs is not illegal. Once video games are purchased legitimately, through legitimate means, they can go ahead and copy the data, as long as it is for private use. To create the back-ups, one must first have the CD and DVD “burning” facilities on their computer, because it is only the computer that can accommodate this function; in other words: CD/DVD-ROM games will not copy on the average DVD player’s burner facility. Next, the video game copy software is needed to break through the firewalls embedded in these video games, meant to prevent “piracy”.

Some online companies offer discounts and free trial periods to persons unwilling to spend on a product they have not yet used or never even heard of before. However, if a person is ready and willing to make an immediate purchase, the Easy Back-up Wizard is a great find and for a price of approximately $50.00US. This back-up software is compatible with most CD/DVD-ROM based games. Once the software has been sourced and loaded on to the computer, the instructions can be followed to complete the process of backing-up the original game.

Creating copies of PC game original discs will enable owners of these games to have peace of mind. Now the originals of video games can be stored away, while everyone can still enjoy the same quality entertainment from the copy disc version of the game. Because of the high quality copies that is possible using the Easy Back-up Wizard, none of your guests at games evening will be able to tell the difference!
