Burning Q - No DVD; Random Qs Too
Hi, I'm a bit new to this hacking scene and I've been reading random posts on anything related to it and it all just dazzles me. I've borrowed a Sony DVD with Smash bros in it and it worked fine, loaner has mod chip, and I used softmod with a 3.3U. However, when I tried to play Rabbids Go Home on a DVD burned on Verbtaim (both were DVD-R sony's and this) through NeoGamma DVD Launch with everything defaulted, it just say No DVD when it's clearly in and not reversed or what not. So what am I doing wrong?
Also, how does USB Loader work? I don't understand the whole USB Loader GX and WBFS. I've read that it loads from USB drives and HDD's. I'm planning to purchase a WD MyBook 1TB soon and format it to WBFS since the one at home is in used and I wouldn't want to format it. Does it also work with USB drives I assume? Assuming it's higher than 5G. Do I need extra files besides those 2 files on Dogegg's list.
So here's what I did to my wii. It was never touched for a while until I heard about the NSMB game and I decided to hack it. It was defaulted at 3.3U version and I used Dogegg's guide "NEW 3.1-4.1 Softmod" and followed everything on it and did boot2 and etc. Only thing I didn't do was update my system menu and didn't install Preloader, not knowing what it do but assuming blocks disc updates and couldn't anyways with 3.3U.
So one last set of questions. Can I still update my system to 4.2U while it's softmodded without any chances of brick? And then hack it with the 4.2 guide by messie? Or can I just leave it be and buy a mod chip to install onto my system and there wouldn't be any interference or update bricks or what not? Or should I just update it to 4.2U and buy a mod chip regardless due to it's faster compability, less bricking, and easier access?
Thank you and sorry for the massive questions :o
