If there ever was someone new to wii hacking, it is me for sure. But this is a blast and I'm having a great time learning a little here and there, putting it together, using the 'trial and error' method usually. For that I'm extrememly grateful to this place for the files, information, and tutorials provided! I hope to be a member here until wii is replaced with some kind of all-encompassing holographic system that you see on Star Trek.
Last night I was trying to figure out a bunch of things about my SD card that I just KNEW must have been answered before. I was telling my wife 'man you wouldn't believe the wii geek speak in this page that helps get the wii recognizing...and so on'. She asked me to read some of it to her, so I did. She just goes 'whoa', and kind of chuckles. She really started cracking up when I told her that I'm actually understanding a lot of this stuff!
For that, I have to thank wiihacks.com and the generosity of the people in this place.

2009 Wii Serial numbers after LU3884XXXX and LEH2676XXXX have probably got the new D3-2 chip that prevents playing backup DVD's. They can still use original discs and USB loaders.
And please do donate to the forum if you are able so we can go on helping the Wii community.
I hope you have a great time here at WiiHacks, and increase your knowledge of all things Wii.
