I was extremely excited when Ubisoft announced their new game JustDance2 for the Wii console and made the decision to buy it at launch! So I did, had a great time dancing away with friends, and laughing at the rediculous moves until our sides hurt. A good time. THEN I decided I needed new music and went out and bought myself a Wii Point card and downloaded a handful of good songs, and they turned out to be just as good as the rest. But shortly after, my Wii decides it can't read the discs anymore and I'm down one system. R.I.P. So I remember there being a SD card compatibility and grab myself a knew Wii and a Nintendo Certified SD card. And with that I head off eager to play JustDance2 again and relive those good times. But as soon as I have all the songs loaded onto the card, I find out that they CANNOT be read on another system. In my oppinion, massive flaw.
So Is that it, $20 bucks spent and wasted due to a failed copyright exercise? No online account able to record current purchases? I find this hard to swallow, But if thats how Nintendo/Ubisoft decided to leave it, then major points with me have been lost. Its not that hard to make a simple data storage. If anyone knows of a solution, please let me know. Because the last thing I want to do is give Nintendo the satisfaction of taking hold of another $20..
The only way you can use downloaded content on a different Wii is if Nintendo had to repalce your origianl Wii during a repair, which from the sounds of it you should have sent into Nintendo to look at about your disc drive. If its in warrenty it won't cost anything and if its out of warrenty it will only be 75 dollars instead of 200 dollars for a new Wii. The reason you can't use your DlC on another Wii is an anti piracy mechanism. You can call Nintendo support and maybe they can help with a solution for you 1-800-255-3700.
