My dsik drive is smashed, my cousins 2yrd old son jammed a bunch of toys into the disk drive so instead of replaceing the blown disk drive I decided to instead turn the wii homebrew into a gaming platform!

Many of our new members find the tutorials for softmoddingthe Wii particularly useful:
If you will be using an external USB hard disk drive (HDD) to load and play backups of your Wii games after softmodding your Wii, a guide for multiple partitions using the WBFS (Wii Backup File System) format for Wii games is HERE. Another HDD guide for those who prefer a single FAT32-formatted partition is HERE.
