My wii is an import and I dont know where to purchase games for it


Actually, I believe that if you go to the same language of video game sites as your Wii is (and translate with Google Toolbar) you may be able to purchase games for your Wii that would work. Or, if you want to play specific region-protected games (e.g. English game on Japanese Wii), you can enable homebrew, which is running unauthorized applications on the Wii. One of these apps is one that can disable region-protection on your Wii. But be aware, because if you don't know what you're doing with homebrew, you could screw up your Wii.

How to Rip Wii Backups: VIDEO GUIDE HERE>>> Making backups of your Nintendo Wii games is a great investment that will likely save you some money. You will need a Wii running Homebrew to rip and then play your Wii backups. So, before attempting the actual backup get the Homebrew channel up and running. Having a Homebrew-capable Wii means that your console is able to play user created programs and games that are not Nintendo signed. This is legal, but cannot be taught here for copyright reasons (see Resources for more information). Step 1 Turn on your Nintendo Wii and allow it to boot into your Wii dashboard. Insert your external hard drive into an open USB slot or insert your Wii SD card. Use the Wiimote to select the "Homebrew" channel and you will be shown the available Homebrew programs. Step 2 Select "DVD Dumper" from the Homebrew channel. Press the "A" button to verify that you want to backup the game to your external hard drive or SD card. Press the right directional pad button until the screen says "Wii Single-Layer Disc" and press the "A" button. Step 3 Insert your Wii game into the optical drive. Your Wii will read the disc and will ask you to press the "A" button to begin the rip. Press the "A" button and your Wii game will be placed onto the external hard drive or SD card. Step 4 Wait as the process completes. DVD Dumper will tell you when the process is complete and you can exit the program. You can now use your Wii backups to play games from your external hard drive or SD card. You will need a program like "USBLoader" to play these backups (see Resources).
