    I found this on the web and it sounds promising:

    Nintendo has gone to some lengths to keep one step ahead of the modding community, but to little avail. We've recently seen a product that enables DVD playback on the Wii, and now we've been hepped to FLATMII, a device that plugs into the Wii's drive ribbon, letting you stream ISO backups of your games (or the Gecko OS, Mplayer, emulators and more) from your Windows XP or Vista PC -- which your console now takes for its DVD drive. If you're the sort of sane and sober Wii owner who figures that it is wise and prudent to backup games that you own legally -- the kind who would never ever ever think of stealing software -- hit that read link. And be sure to catch the video after the break.

    as i said, just think about using it...

    you must has it on your computer and it must be with your computer at all times

    since youre booting from your computer it will lag, based off how well your computer works

    since youre booting from your computer it must be close to your computer to use, meaning basicly if you dont have a laptop, then you need a LONG cord

    since youre not using discs, to use at a friends you must have the computer with you to use there

    since youre using ISO from the computer, you must own them all, if you want to play every game you "backed up"

    since this only works on windows, apple users are SOL

    like i said its too tedious to use, thought maybe its more useful, when you get it, just wait for someone to review it if its even real

    I have three pcs at home, so why not throw one at my wii? My wii just sits on top of my media pc in the tv cabinet, so it's worthwhile to try. Hope someone try it soon.

    Is there a solution to use mass usb storage such as hdd with Wii yet? I am a new wii user, just got it at Christmas.

    nope, enver will be either, just 2 gig sd card booting, and also seahawk, how many people do you think are like you? come on, im talking about a whole, not everyone, you cant assume people got the same as you because you got it.

    admiral, how do u do sd booting? what can u boot from? where is the link?

    found this post on the web:

    Using a cIOS with DI commands directed to a ISO file from a USB HDD should in theory be doable. The speed would be a little on the slow side (~3 times slower than backup loader and ~6 times slower than the native Wii drive speed).

    But besides the slow speed, this would still be a better option - free too.

    Question is: how did this guy figure those things out?

    homebrew channel uses, basic booting to get apps, and there is a program that uses media from a HDD souce, but theres no WII HDD
    you cant save to it or boot outside of that program from it

    also SD booting like games, is something comming in a later update

    animeware, before I even knew twilight hack I updated the firmware to 3.4u ( i know it's not a smart move). I am also highly brickphobic and heard downgrade is dangerous.

    Do you know if I turn off connect24, can BIG N still update my wii without noticing?

    its unknown nothing has happened since 3.4, and just ignore him, hes like a little elf

    but seahawk, if you dont want to brick, dont go into homebrew, its like 99% safe, but it happens
