Hi faz999 welcome to Wiihacks. Follow this guide to help you load Wii backup games but first you need to softmod. Go to the system settings on your wii and in the top right corner it should say something like this "4.1u" , depending on your firmware and follow the guides in this site to softmod your wii.
If your Wii is 3.1, 3.2, 3.4, 4.0, or 4.1 follow this guide.
If its on 4.2 follow this guide.
If its on 4.3 follow this guide.

Do NOT PM for Site or Wii Issues
Hello faz and welcome to the WiiHacks community. The Introductions Forum is to introduce yourself and thanks very much for doing this. Questions should be posted in the correct forums and threads. Best to post a guide-specific question in the thread associated with that guide. If you are saying that your Wii is using system menu 4.1U, then you will not need an Internet connection to follow the 3.1-4.1 softmod tutorial. The only step requiring an Internet connection is the update of the Wii's system menu to 4.1. Problems with the download link-look for a post earlier in the week-each week I post at least once with a post titled something like Regular Periodic Posting of Links (I believe last week I posted on Tuesday)-there are two mirror sites in that weekly post. Good luck with softmodding your Wii.

To help you access the useful and relevant information available on this site, it is strongly recommended that you first look at this special site index: Wiihacks Ultimate Index. Another guide to the site, that is intended for new members, is HERE.

The WiiHacks membership is a diverse and global community. To ensure a pleasant and safe environment for all, please make sure you read and follow the Rules of this site as they are indeed enforced here. There are a number of tutorials and guides available to assist you with your Wii-related issues. If you have an interest in hard-modding or your Wii already has a chip, check out the Modchip Forum. Many of our new members find the tutorials for softmodding any 3.1-4.1 Wii and any 4.2 Wii or the full hacking guide for 4.2 Wiis particularly useful. If you will be using an external USB hard disk drive to load and play backups of your Wii games after softmodding your Wii, go HERE.

To get the best response to your question(s), post in the correct forum areas. Inappropriate posting (wrong area, double posting, and bumping threads in < 24hours) could get you restricted to the Reading Room or even banned. If, after looking at the tutorials and trying to search, you still need help or just want to post a very basic type of question, try your luck in the Newbie discussions forum.
