    Lightbulb H e l l o !

    Just a quick "Hello" from me, I'm on a few different Forums around town so I know how annoying noobs can be. Unfortunately after softmodding my Wii I now find myself in new and uncharted territory and I myself am a NooB!!!

    I'm also aware of the wealth of information which available to read, both here and the rest of the net. In the few short days of experimenting with my Wii, researching stuff & downloading I now feel like im in Information Overload and think it'll be nice to just have some confirmation from some of the regulars here please.

    But first a little about me. I'm 33 years old, living in Ireland (although i'm not Irish by descent) I've a fairly good knowledge of PC's (software and hardware) I like taking things apart and I'm even more impressed if I don't have any spare screws once I've put them back together! I like technology but despise the manufacturer Apple, well that's kinda an overstatement but when I was getting into Computer many moons ago it was like PC's vs MAC's and nobody was truely into both. A bit like a modern day ATI vs nVidia - you just couldn't have both coexisting happily.

    Without spilling my guts all over my introduction I'm going to try and find the Help section!

    Welcome to me!!! lol

    and welcome to

    Thank you for becoming a member of the best wii modding site around!

    First off you need to read the
    Site rules and try your best to abide by them.

    Now we know the rules its time to find the right guide for modding your wii, I recommend the

    The Softmod Any Wii Guide by Mauifrog

    This guide works for all wii's

    There are also other guides which you can find in the
    Guides and tutorials section

    Once you have completed the guide you need to ascertain if your wii is capable of playing backups via the disc drive or whether you need to be usb loading.

    Wii's post 2009 generally cannot play backups via the disc drive and have to use usb loading.

    I recommend usb loading anyway as you can add an remove your games easily and there is no wear and tear on your disc drive and no messing about with discs etc.

    What you will need to know -

    What drives are compatible -
    Usb Compatibility list

    How to set your drive up -
    Loading and Playing Wii Backup Games from USB HDD

    Once your HDD is setup and ready to go, you will need a program to manage your games!
    Checkout Peire's
    Wii Game Manager Guide

    Now your set up and ready to go, but you run in to a problem with one of your game backups -

    List of problematic games and the solutions

    Now if you're a modchip user you need to get over to the
