    Hello and Happy Holidays

    Hello, this is my first time here. My sister surprised me with a Nintendo Wii this Christmas. I'm so looking forward to Xenoblade when it's released in the US and getting Skyward Sword within the week.

    A little about myself...

    I'm 31 as of last October. I live in California (for now) but won't get into anything more specific than that. I'm mostly a PC gamer but I still have a soft spot for consoles. My very first console was the original 8-bit NES. I own all Nintendo non-handheld consoles except the Gamecube. Besides that, I own a PSOne, PS2, TurboGrafx16, PC-Engine CORE GRAFX, PC-Engine DUO, Super NES, Genesis, 32X, SegaCD (lol...), Gameboy Advance, Nintendo DS, and Dreamcast. (Yes, I collect them, which I've stopped for now.)

    I won't mention anything personal about myself, but I'm very good with computers. My first computer was an 8088 XT PC with 256 kB of RAM, and my first foray into programming was QBasic. I now deal mostly with PC hardware and software repair, troubleshooting, and upgrading as a side business. I also build computers, both desktop and server PCs. Currently I work as a bookkeeper and tax preparer.

    My favorite gaming genres are RPG, strategy RPG, JRPG, Western RPG, real-time strategy, adventure/fantasy, adventure/sci-fi, survival/horror, and platformers.

    I guess that's about it for an introduction. Nice to meet everyone here.

    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!
