    Hello and thanks for being here.

    First off I wanted to say I'm glad you are here. I appreciate the work you are doing and help you are giving. I plan to jump over and donate next because a site like this needs to survive.

    Unfortunately I found out after a few bad experiences that kids do not understand the cost involved with buying and replacing games. I am relatively new to soft-modding the Wii but have hard-modded a couple of my other consoles in the past and recently soft-modded the PS3. I initially had keyed my Wii and decided to soft-mod for the benefit of the HD loader. It worked initially until I decided to "upgrade" some features. As a result the HD loader stopped working so I tried a few things, decided to recover the NAND and bannerbricked. Recovered (luckily). And now I'm back to the Wii not successfully reading any disks or the HD again. I plan to explore the issue(s) further in the Forums.

    About me... I have an IT background and am relatively technical. I've always been one to try to figure out how things work and see if I can take them apart and put them back together (while still having them work.) I did dabble in programming initially but never took it very far.

    Again thank you for giving your (collective) time to this forum. It's nice to have a place where you can trust the information you are reading and support when you may need it.

    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

    And Bluphant's noobs guide - Basic introduction to wii hacking

    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 -
