    Been away for a while

    Hello to everyone on here, i have not used my wii for a few years so i,m i have totally become a noob again regarding softmodding

    Ok i will give you a brief background and ask a few questions and hope someone can get me on the road again.

    The wii was shelved a few years back when my new son came along as he was forever pressing the buttons and trying to stick things in the slot etc so we best though to put it away for a while. Now he is of the age that he would love to play it and mee too. Now i had previously soft modded it using the zelda hack and twilight-hack-v0.1-beta2 and was burning games for fun and they were all working fine, but i see things have moved on a pace and would like to be up to speed. If i dowloaded a backup game using the same methods i did a few years ago and burned them using imgburn like before would they work on my console or have things changed? Like i say i,m a noob i'd i'd bet they wouldnt as they(nintendo) have prob made things a little more difficult. If there is something new i'd love to learn it, but would this render all my backup burns/games useless or would i still be able to play them? I can use the console just now fine but would like to get some new games for my little man, he loves the look of toy story 3 as thats his fav film, any help or hint to my questions would be greatly appreciated.

    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 -
