Thanks again for all of your help. After soft modding my wii and 4 days of trial and error I am now playing windwaker from sd card, and I still have all my saved games on GC Memory card. Awesome!!!

Just in case it gets asked again. I did switch out the disk drive from the black wii to the white. Wii games work fine but it just spits out game cube games. I am curios what would happen if you put an old drive into the new wii.
