New Wii With -R Disks?
Hey all, am new to the site and have installed Homebrew on my new Wii today, I have been told that the new drives have a different drive which means they no longer play DVD's as backups and it will need to be done via USB HDD.
Is this true, as I have a batch of DVD-R and was going to see if I had installed Homebrew successfully instead of buying an external HDD and it not working.
Also do I just go to the disk channel to launch the game or do I have to do anything else, I followed the tut 3.1 to 4.1 which was posted on this site.
Thanks for all your help
i softmodded my daughters new black wii yesterday that'll only load games via usb the new chip in the is designed not to reconise dvdr's
I found a file in the 3.1 to 4.1 tut and just downloading now it says that it will allow DVDR's to be played on all Wiis, is it worth installing or not?
It might not have new drive
Although the wii you have is new out of the box, it may have been sitting in a warehouse for some time. It may not have the new drive.

Use Neogamma to try launch game. IF does not work u are gonna have to use usb loading. Which is a lot better anyway.
Use neogamm R7 to launch the discs.
How do I launch games with Neogamma?
I already have those files installed that you said in the above post, but have seen cIOSCORP_v3.5, what does this do and it states works on all Wiis?
I will be getting the USB HDD so is there anything else needed to install this, I know it has to be formatted and have 2 seperate partions.
Sorry for all the questions but new to the Wii scene and don't want anything to go wrong
cioscorp allows launching copied discs from original disc channel. However used incorrectly can brick your wii.
With neogamma just put disc in, launch neogamma and press A to launch game.
If it gives you an error get back to us.
Regarding the HD you need a program called WBFS mananger. If its just a 500gb HD just use the format button on WBFS manager to format the drive. If its a bigger drive you are going to have to partition it.
Once HD is formated load the drive in WBFS and add iso files using the same program.
You then need to install a USB program on your wii, my favourite is configurable usb loader. There are others available, try youtube to watch demo of different loaders.
Once you have installed the loader and got games on your drive, plug the HD into the bottom usb on wii. Launch usb loader and bingo!!
Rememeber you will need cios rev 14 installed.
So how do I launch NeoGamma, I cannot find it, like Ive said am a n00b to the Wii. Looked on the Homebrew channel but its not there? Also not any other channels?

Then restart your Wii.""
I followed that guide to the letter but still haven't got the Neogamma channel, will try again tonight and will get back
open homebrew channel, wad manager will be on the sub page to the right
