    I'm not an expert on modchips so anyone correct me if I'm wrong, but even with a modchip black wiis have a dvd drive that can't read backed up discs and softmodding is the only option. If I'm wrong anyone jump in. I'm just a softmod guy

    I was under the impression that even a mod chip could not make a newer wii able to read backed up discs too. Softmod with usb hdd is way better anyhow (IMO)

    no need to hardmod for that. Softmod will do it for you, and it's free

    That's what I wasn't sure on. I agree softmod w/ usb hdd is the best way to go since it's free. I thought it was the new chipset that prevented backup loading. Maybe I'm out of date on my hardmod info which was limited before the evil dvd drives came out to begin with.
