    Cool New to Wii modding and the site!

    Hello all, my name is Kokiriii and I thought I was tech savvy until I started trying to mod my Wii! I got the idea because I heard that it was possible to play Wii discs from all regions with a soft-modded Wii and I use video games as a way to help learn foreign languages. Until now I've been importing handheld Nintendo games since they are region free, but when I heard about this I was really excited about the possibility of importing PAL games and playing them on my NTSC Wii.

    As I said, I thought I was pretty tech savvy until I started this! Not that it seems difficult but...I just don't know. It seems like no matter how carefully I follow the directions I run into a little hiccup here and there. I'll be sifting through the forums more, reading more guides, and posting specific questions if I can't find them already answered somewhere. So far my problems have been verifying checksums (the program linked to in the main softmodding guide crashes everytime I run it on Mac OSX 10.8.2) and with getting my loaders to recognize my USB HDD (Western Digital WD3200H1CS-00) consistently without having to open and close Priiloader (if I don't do that, all my loaders freeze at the step of finding the USB HDD). Anyway, I look forward to getting to know the community and learning from all the brilliant people here! I really am quite amazed at what people have been able to do with this awesome little machine.
