    Softmodded Wii 4.3U Why can't I,.....

    Hi,.I'm new here. Really great site,.thank you. I have a question. I have softmodded my Daughters Christmas gift being a Wii 4.3U "BLACK" version. Everything went fine with the mod,.but I can't seem to play burnt games or DVDs. Does anyone know what I need to do to get this to work? Software/hardware needed. My buddy burnt me some of his legal games that I would like to play on Christmas Day!!. Any help would be great.
    Thank you,

    Johnny

    yes you need a hdd because the drive has a newer dvd drive that will not read back ups no work around except hardmod I believe you can fine usb loader guides here. And try not metioning Pirated games If Inisant as it may sound read site rules. But to play Legal Backups check the compatiabllity list for hdd and find usb loader you like if its for a younger child recommend usb loader gx .

    Hi and thank you for the quick response! I do have and external 320 gig USB drive. I'm really sorry but I'm new to all of this. What do I need to complete this and to make it work correctly? I have the Homebrew channel and this Wii is a Black 4.3U version. Thank you again for the help,.it's just that I'm lost here!!

    If you'd done what the rules ask of you as a first-time poster, you'd already be halfway there or better:

    Ok check Mauifrogs guide to softmodding that should get you there also need to make sure the hdd is compatiable and is formatted correctly and follow the guides closely I'am going to guess you only have the homedrew channel or did you follow any of the guides completely. There are plenty of guides here to get you started and go to the introduct youself thread and post a thread there you will get links to most of the guides needed to get you started as the very nice modderator stated you would be more than half way there.

    Yes, I followed the guidelines to the tee to softmod the 4.3U. Everything is installed correctly and ready to go.

    Ok you should be set then you need to get wbfs manager on you pc and format you external drive to wbfs and if you followed the guides you should have a usb loader and you can put the retail bought games into the wii and after hooking drive to wii in correct usb slot one on the bottom if laying flat or to the right if on side looking from back. and run usb loader and copy game to hdd drive.

    Huh? Only hardmods for "work around" in this case would be WODE, Sundriver, and perhaps the Wiikey Fusion. A traditional hardmod isn't going to get you anywhere. OP: yes, a USB HD would work; gen3sf has a guide in the Recommended Guides on setting that up. That presumes a successful softmod on 4.3 (which requires one of only four retail/original game discs to accomplish).

    Thanks for the the guide to point him in the direction and list of hardmods I have little knowledge of those things and don't see why people are still wanting them. Still need need to set up sig with list of guides for people.

    Ok,.I have the wbfs manager installed on my PC. I don't know about the USB loader though. I don't think I have that installed on the Wii. Any particular one needed? I will check the Wii when I return to work on Monday to see if that USB loader is installed. Thank you for taking the time to help me out. You guys are great!
