    Im a newbie at this, please help!

    hey
    i recently got my wii modded and got usb loader 1.5 sometimes it says fail usb 1...2...3...4... and then shows a screen with tons of weird numbers and i must pull the power chord, how can this be prevented? I want to get a disc loader instead of USB and was wondering the best one to download?(link please and what type of discs should i use) Some of my games such as wii sports resort arent working (it says ERROR #002) how do i fix this? Also when i try to use WAD installer 1.4 it says this app is in valid, can someone send me a verified working download link? Lastly sometimes when i download an app or something in the rar it has a boot.dol where do i place this? \

    Thanks so much and sorry about all the questions. Any help/ advice would be great

    Please Get Your Head Into The TUTORIALS.
    Who modded your Wii?
    You have to be patient and get some reading up done on general homebrew stuff in the tutorials Section, (Have a Good Read) here: ►RECOMMENDED FAQ's, GUIDES & TUTORIALS ONLY ◄

    Also there are a lot of videos that can help you pick up the basics on YouTube. Plus some more advanced stuff.
    Be Patient and You will soon find things become a little easier to get to grips with.
    You can find everything you need if you search the forum: or Google
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...er-people.html

    Some Of Your Questions:
    Firstly, You Need to make sure your cIOS38 revision is correct for USB Loader use...
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...explained.html

    Not All Hard Drive's will work, So try another if you have one handy, or buy a "Western Digital My Passport Essential".
    Neogamma Is A Good Disc Loader, (Version R6 or R7) ...
    Use DVD-R Disks (Verbatim Brand Work Well, ... But so do Other Brands
    The 002 Fix can be sorted using a setting in the Neogamma Loader, Or a USB Loader. ...
    Also You Have to make sure Wads Go In the Wad folder on your Sd Card. ...
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...t-proof-o.html

    At the moment I would not be too concerned about getting Wii Sports working just yet, that is a hurdle to jump a bit further down the track so to Speak, Firstly get a better understanding of what's what.

    A Lot Of the more recent games require a slightly different approach to get working...OK Here Goes
    http://www.wiihacks.com/general-home...ts-resort.html

    I will be accused of spoon feeding you the links here, but I know what its like... sometimes there is just too much information, but if you have problems see if the tutorials help you out. You Can Get up on developments really quickly, if you just stay patient and read up on stuff, that is the best advice I can Give You, because You will need to get yourself to a point where you can part softmod the Wii yourself with some confidence. All the clever stuff has already been done its just a case of checking and following a procedure properly ...

    lol there is not such thing.. dim is diminuita or diminished, which is the 7nth grade (?) of the minor scale, with a minor 7nth. It cant be m or 7... there are practically only 3 diminshed chords, no more, and they can lead you to 20 different scales!! plus they sound cool!!

    guitar hero is only guitar i can play! lol

    I play brass, mainly trombone, but anything you have to blow in basically! so chords arent my speciality! lol.


    back on topic:

    try another USB loader, some USB HDD's seem to work better with some, i use CFG USB loader with no problems.
