    most modchips only allow for back ups fro disk. It is a simple thing to use but doesn't have the freedom and control like in softmodding. Softmodding is free and you can play backups from usb devices.

    I've done both to my Wii. Personally, I like the ability to play burned games from my disc channel (which you can't do with only a softmod) because not all games I've burned work 100% through the soft mod or, conversely, the hard mod either.

    In retrospect, I suggest you just softmod your Wii... or you can use the new WODE mod (which looks absolutely bad @$$ to me).

    (search: WODE)

    I think I am going to go down the modchip route was contemplating softmod but I think I will leave it until I'm more confident with a bit more research to start tinkering properly.
