thanks to anyone and everyone who's played a roll in this site. i got the wii running backups from a hard drive. works pretty slick. i have a couple relatives wanting theirs done like that now lol. i got some snow on the screen with the hard drive being hooked up. thinking it could be related to the fact i'm doing this via usb hard drive adapter and the rower supply doen't like the wii. i'm thinking i might get a 2.5 pata and use it for the wii exclusively since those will run off usb only. just bypass that issue. my wife's happy she let me tinker with it now. (was uneasy at first). i still am running with no preloader. i'll get to that shortly taking baby steps with it. fooling with the cios files makes me nervous knowing the outcome could be bad. long story shot, i wanted this done and now it is. just saying thanks. one more thing while i'm rambling about the help and the recent accomplishment, if i decide against the 2.5 pata h/d, does anyone know of a good usb h/d to use or enclosure for a 3.5 sata?
