Hi, my Name is PinInCalgary and I'm new to WiiHacks
Hi, we've had a Blue Wii for a couple years and always wondered why I couldn't play DVDs on it. Since it's the family Wii, I decided hacking it was a non-starter since if I bricked it the 6 year old wouldn't have anything to play on and I don't have the $$$$ to get a Wii-U. So, recently bought a Black Wii for $50 from the local pawn shop, hadn't discovered this site so found out too late that Black Wii also won't play DVD. I've therefore hacked the black Wii per the guides on this site so that I could use the 1.5Tb HDD I had waiting for something to do. (Bought a couple 2Gb/4Gb SD cards at Superstore for $4 this last weekend to accomplish the hack)
My background is telecommunications, but I dabble in computers - mainly converting older Intel based PCs to Hackintosh(if I'm allowed to say that?). Also trying to learn how to program Android phones, Blackberry phones and iPhones/iPods.
:045:You all are just awesome with the information provided.
