should i delete old posts no longer needed
Hi guys. Is it advisable to delete any of my old posts or threads i have started that are no longer being used or replied to?
I still haven't got my Wii working. I've been away a few weeks so now i'm back i just thought i'd update you on my Wii.
I have followed the GUIDE 3 times and i know i've done it all right all 3 times.
It was already soft-modded some 5 years ago but it stopped working for some reason.
It won't read any discs, but i dont think its a Drive problem cos i get the same black error screen on installed games bought with vouchers, like Galaga etc.
I am certain it is a firmware problem. One of you kind people have advised me (i think) to download Syscheck which i have just done and posted the results of that check. Tho i don't think i did the 'Spoiler' thing properly. I just can't get my head around what it is. I did try by putting /sp everywhere i thought it should go, but i think i'm missing the point and probably look like a fool.
I also hope i posted it in the right place. If anyone can check and let me know if i need to delete it so i can (i will anyway once i've given one of you experts a chance to ponder it to see if i do indeed have a firmware issue.
If anyone can give me a link to the 4.2e update i will just overwrite the one on my Wii to see if that fixes it. But if i do flash the Wii will i lose HB etc?
Again sorry if i sound clueless. The old braincells aren't what they were.
Anyway thanks to anyone who got all the way through this post, and like i said, is it the 'done thing' to delete outdated posts/threads?

Peire's Wii Game Manager Guide
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.

iOS 7 keeps messing it up if I try to edit...
which USB loader do i need
no sorry i own an old Wii. Miniwii was just a username i wouldn't forget, as i am always forgetting my usernames on different sites.
Right i've soft-modded my Wii, and wish to thank the genius who created it. And i WILL DEFINATELY make a donation to this site as soon as i see a game working.
I've got to the last stage and i am now confronted with a huge list of USB loaders. I obviously need the 'All in one' package but i haven't a clue which one i need.
There are exe, dols, and wads everywhere and i haven't a clue which one i need. Also, i already have an old version of a USB loader already installed on my Wii, so i need to manually update it, which i will try to do before asking for any help.
But can anyone tell me if i need the exe, dol or whatever, and do i extract it to my SD card with the other apps, (one of which is USB loader forwarder), or do i already have it on the SD.
Apologies if this question looks as stupid as it does to me
