The Wii Backup Disc v1.31 is a service disc apparently used inside Official Nintendo Repair shops to transfer personal data like savegames and console settings between Wiis as part of a repair. It's not entirely clear what it does; something it does not do — even though it appears it might — is allow VC games to be transferred between consoles. Instead, it transfers the license so that the user can redownload the games from Wii Shop Channel for free.

Emulation Information

Controller Map Overlap

Wii Backup Disc is capable of using both GameCube controllers and Wii Remotes. If a physical controller is set to emulate both a GameCube Controller and a Wii Remote concurrently, it will operate both devices at the same time. To fix, migrate controls to use separate physical controllers.

Problems

Emulator Hangs

Since 5.0-2127 the emulator hangs when it's trying to load the disc. There is no solution other than using a revision before that. Fixed in 5.0-3546.

Hangs After Stopping Emulation

The emulator hangs when the emulation is stopped.
