    Yes, you will need DVDx installed, and something like media player ce to play the dvd's, unless of course your wii is a very newer one, and its not able to play burned DVD media, in which case you might be out of luck. Check this first, and then do the above second.

    If you follow any of the 4.2 guides in the forums here messies or shadowsonics (Both are very good), they as part of installation of the soft moding, they will have you install dvdx, you can see messie's guide here: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...tem-menus.html
    and you can get the latest mplayerce from mplayer-ce - Project Hosting on Google Code

    does anyone know if instead of burning dvds to play on the wii is there a way of having them play on the external hd instead?

    Sure is, soft mod'ing and using the CFG or GX Loaders will do it. Otherwise a awesome hard mode solutions is the Wode, which I highly recommend (search 'wode' in the forum).

    Sunkey will also do the same thing, but I dont like the fact of removing the DVD drive to use it personally.
