    looking for love

    manners are sometimes lacking on-line
    so i thought id start off here in the introductions section and introduce myself im popeye im 32 years old and looking for that special some one to spend my life with im athletic [i cycle nearly 18 miles a day [work and back]] am out going friendly and have a great sense of humour im tender giving and fully taking the piss so back to reality, im popeye, i have a 4.3 wii that im looking to soft mod for hbc and when the kids/dog eats a game itd be nice to not have to pay another 30 odd quid to play a game i already own a license to [i dont see why you cant return the dead disc and receipt for a new one with a small handling fee but pet peeves aside....] ive had enough of that with my 360 till it died of rrod hence the wii under the TV ive read a few guides to hacking/softmoddingand think i am capable of doing it but i have a few qs about bits i dont quite get if someone could point me in the right direction id be grateful
    q1 at the moment i dont have a hard drive usb dongle to move files around with i do have a card reader writer on my pc and a usb device that i can put a sd card in so it can read from a usb port will this do the job? also i have a strait 2 gig full size sd card that originally came out of a digi camera, and also a micro sd 1 gig card and full size adaptor again are these suitable? in a few post's i have read advise on sds differs
    q2 as i understand it on versions below mine ie 4.2 down you can install bootmii as a boot 2 file which in the event of me dropping a bollock would safeguard me from bricking my wii but will not work on my s.m. i have read that priiloader serves the same[ish] function for 4.3 so if i install priiloader use letter bomb and just use it for games and internet [i have no interest at all in programing and understand verry little about it] then there should be no reason my wii would brick? and if i did priiloader would allow a recovery. am i correct in this please?
    so with those two questions answered i should have all the knowledge i need to crack on with this little job anyone who bothered to read this then thank you for your time and if your taking the time to answer well ill talk to you soon, cheers lads [and ladesses]

    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 -

    Bmarlo's Ultimate List of problematic games and the solutions

    Peire's Ultimate guide to music and dance games

    Now if you're a modchip user you need to get over to the
