    Hi all. new to the wii and this modding community

    Hi guys. I recently bought the new super mario bros wii buncle cuz it was cheap and i didnt want to spend money on a more expensive console that was bound to RROD or YLOD on me. AGAIN. After playing with it a few days and reaffirming my love for all things ZELDA , a coworker told me about how his wii is all modded out. Surprised that there is a community for the wii i joined and read thru the extensive thread on WHY you should mod it and also the guide on 4.3 HOW to mod. I have to say you folks are by far some of the most intelligent and thoughtful people in the history of the internet. NO ONE is flamed for being a noob, CLEAR CONCISE info is presented in a EASY to read manner. its a friggin PLUS SIGN. CLICK IT. DONE. Im going to do some more reading of course and hey if all things go well i think i might pick up an SD card this weekend and go at 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 -
