    I have to admit, I haven't even tried to load a backup DVD - just accepted what I've been told on here lol.
    The USB HDD works well so far so I'll stick to that.

    My only complaint is if I have to use NeoGamma, it's not very intuitive to use - especially when compared with USB Loader GX which is very easy to use.

    Just think, This can be a blessing;
    Less soft modding.
    Usb-HDD instead of chip.
    No more buying DVD-Rs.
    No warn out dvd drives.
    No BS.

    The list goes on.....
    PLEASE SEARCH, READ, AND THINK BEFORE DOING ANYTHING.


    Don't forget the thanks button...

    dumping is faster
    games play better
    stores settings per game so you don't have to go into setup to force NTSC every time you want to play a game that was put out in PAL only
    no more buying DVD-Rs (that alone is worth repeating, lol)

    I figure that with the amount of backups I had, I had probably paid for 2 HDDs before I ever bought one, lol.

    I've accepted new wii drives won't play backup games from burnt dvdr discs, but how about playing divx movies from el cheapo verbatim dvdrs in Mplayer CE please?

    EDIT: or dvdrws for that matter please?

    EDIT2: or whatever kind of other discs (can blank discs that are same type as original dvd games be bought and burnt for new wii drives)?

    You can use a usb hdd or a sd card for movies.

    I read on another thread that I can turn on a 002 fix in USB Loader GX which means I no longer have to use NeoGamma (at the moment) which is a great result.

    I'll look into this MPlayer CE though, our HDD/DVD recorder is starting to play up and doesn't play the DVDs very well sometimes (it's quite old now and needs replacing really) so if I could throw stuff like that onto the Wii HDD or use a USB memory stick, that'd be a good do

    Divx movies work great with Mplayerwii and a usb stick.
    You cant put movies on the same drive your games are on, because its in another format.

    Question wii have a black wii 2

    hiya.... now please be nice to me i am new to the wii. we have the black wii. i have seen on it that it is 4.2e.

    now i want to be able to download games ( i.e use piratebay ) and i want to be able to play said games on the wii.

    i also want to use it as a dvd player.

    from what i have read it appears that i need to softmod or hack the wii with something called homebrew?

    I have so far formatted an SD card.

    that is as far as i have got.
    i have no real technical knowledge of what you people talk about.

    i dont want to break the wii if i do it wrong .
    so can anyone tell me if softmodding the wii will allow me to do what i require?
    thankyou

    i have a couple of questions :

    1.) If I buy the black wii from amazon (Nintendo Wii Console (Black) with Wii Sports + Wii Sports Resort and Motion Plus Controller (Wii): Amazon.co.uk: PC & Video Games) will it work with this hdd (Western Digital 160GB Elements External USB 2.0 2.5": Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo)

    2.) If I buy the White Wii instead (Nintendo Wii Console with Wii Sports + Wii Sports Resort and Motion Plus Controller (Wii): Amazon.co.uk: PC & Video Games)
    Will it be able to run games by dvd ??

    3.) How much space i need in the sd card ? Do i need to plug it when i want to play or just to install ? Will this sd card do the job (Kingston Technology 2GB Secure Digital Card: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo
