    Hey guys, i'm back

    Been since last year since I was here, but I'm back. Not sure why my posts got deleted, but i'm sure things have changed this past year to hacking the Wii. Well i'll be here often since I'm getting a wii soon, and want to ask a few questions, learn the ropes again, and maybe help some people out! Happy hacking!

    Hello
    and welcome to



    Thank you for becoming a member of the best wii modding site around!


    First off you need to read the
    Site rules and try your best to abide by them.

    Now we know the rules its time to find the right guide for modding your wii, I recommend the


    The Softmod Any Wii Guide by Mauifrog

    This guide works for all wii's



    And Bluphant's noobs guide - Basic introduction to wii hacking

    There are also other guides which you can find in the
    Guides and tutorials section


    Once you have completed the guide you need to ascertain if your wii is capable of playing backups via the disc drive or whether you need to be usb loading.


    Wii's post 2009 generally cannot play backups via the disc drive and have to use usb loading.


    I recommend usb loading anyway as you can add an remove your games easily and there is no wear and tear on your disc drive and no messing about with discs etc.


    What you will need to know -


    What drives are compatible -
    Usb Compatibility list

    How to set your drive up -
    Loading and Playing Wii Backup Games from USB HDD


    Once your HDD is setup and ready to go, you will need a program to manage your games!
    Checkout Peire's
    Wii Game Manager Guide


    Now your set up and ready to go, but you run in to a problem with one of your game backups -


    List of problematic games and the solutions






    Now if you're a modchip user you need to get over to the
    Modchip Section

    Thanks for the quick reply mod! I am wondering one thing, will I be able to play backups on an external hard drive if i were to format a certain partition? I see that in the guide, and it's explained somewhat, but will I be able to format it on a certain partition after it's checked and cleared for errors with stuff already on the drive? that's the only thing I got right now, other than DVD-R's from modding my old wii. im thinking about purchasing a Wii from walmart tonight online, and not sure if it will play backup discs as you said they don't after 09.

    Yes, the wii will read fat32 or ntfs partitions, i think the partition has to be marked as active and primary though, but yes u can also store other things there too. Here is the fat 32 guide and the ntfs guide. Any other questions to be asked in relative thread or start one in the newbie discussion area
