    Hi, I'm not just a noob, I'm also a goob


    My name is Gael. I'm a 48 year old chick from California. I have a Wii that I want to mod. I've been reading posts on this forum for several days through my android app. I have much to learn before I attempt to mod my Wii. There is so much I don't understand, such as how to get the files onto my sd card..I have an external drive, do i use that? I have a thumb drive too.

    I'm finding myself confused about almost everything, but I believe I'll eventually find a thread that will walk me through it. So far even the most basic "noob" threads re modding are above my head.

    with fingers crossed,

    hi gael, take your time with everything. you use your pc to get the files on an sd card. ignore anything to do with a usb until you have successfully modded your wii. read, read read. read again, understand what you are reading then try it. you should be able to soft mod a wii in about 2 hours. you need a pc to hand, it's sometimes easier to download files through the pc and put them on a sd card than to do it through the wii's connection. don't even attempt it until you thinks you understand it all.

    When you have all your mods done, then you can backup your games, ie make copies of games you own. put them on a usb drive and then play them directly from the usb drive.

    Make sure you know what type of mod you want to do. Dogeggs does some great step through tutorials.

    Take your time and everything will be fine.
    Good luck
