Hello Another New Person
Hello everyone and THANK YOU for all the great information on how to mod my Wii. I came here looking to mod my Wii to play burned back up disk which if I read right I can since I have an old Wii the identifier I found here on the site says There is a 75% chance the chipset is GC2-D2E and was made in 2006 which means I can play burned copies right? I know I will probably have a bunch of questions about modding my Wii. I am not here to run illegal copies of games just backup copies of my games since they get scratched so easily.
Also if I read correctly all I have to do is follow the guide to soft mod the Wii and put everything on my SD card then just burn the games and play them right? Which program would be the best to use to burn my games? I am just making sure of everything so I do not get a virus on my computer or brick my Wii.
1 more thing is it legal to play back up copies of games that I have for SNES on the Wii. Removed Grey Area ( I don't think it is legal since I am not making the copies) since I have alot of SNES games.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR THE HELP
Also live in close to Hagerstown, MD is there anyone reputable close by that I could bring my Wii and computer so they could help me get set up for a fee of course.
Please Use The Edit Function.

Yes, you probably will be able to run back ups from the disc drive, but we recommend Usb loading.(It's Faster and is not choppy)
Also when it comes to getting the snes games...that is a grey area, just search is all I can say.
Please don't ask where to get copies of games /snes etc....It's against the Rules.
This is only for Introductions.
Just follow the soft mod any wii guide, read it a few times and you can do it yourself.

Please be aware that newer Wii's Do not play back up disc from the disc drive. Your only option will be to load from the Usb port.Usb Loading is recommeded as you will not have any lag and if your lazy like me,you won't have to get up to change the Disc.
Before you go out and spend money on a HDD for your Wii,make sure that it is on the Compatibility list.This will save you time and money.
