    Hello and welcome to the wiihacks community.

    I know you are anxious to get started; but, there are a few items to cover before you post your questions or start doing anything to your Wii.

    Make sure you read the rules of this site. There are a number of tutorials and guides available to assist you. Many of our new members find the tutorials for softmodding any 3.1-4.1 Wii and any 4.2 Wii particularly useful. Make sure to either look through the site tutorials and guides or use the search function before asking questions. While the moderators, staff, and members of this community are willing to help you, some effort on your part to read, research, and follow the rules is expected. To get the best response to your question(s), post in the associated forum areas. This is very important as inappropriate posting could get you restricted to the reading room or even banned. If, after looking at the tutorials and trying to search, you still need help or just want to post a very basic type of question, go to the

    Wiihacks also has a chat room on irc:// . After reading the iRC rules, please feel free to join in the light-hearted chats and activities. While any IRC client can connect to #wiihacks on the UICN , there are tutorials to help you connect using either ChatZilla or mIRC.

    If this site and our members have provided substantive help, you can Donate to the forum and get a nice banner under your name and gain access to the donator forums.

    It does sound like you are very confused. Are you thinking the only two options are either a chip or the SD card? The SD card can be used to play WiiWare and VC games; it can also be used as a substitute for a game disc backup and used to play a game ISO using a backup loader directed to load from SD rather than the disc; and one can also format an SD card in the WBFS format and play games through a USB loader that is directly to load from the SD card instead of the USB. More typical after a softmod is to play game backups from a DVD-R disc or from an external USB hard disk drive.

    So, your question is rather broad and may actually reflect your newness to softmodding the Wii and the possibilities available. Here is an introductory guide to help you figure out a few terms and then you can use the tutorials more effectively:
