    TBO, we don't know anyone who has one so that we can ask them. It should be fine, but no way to know anything or certain.

    Usb devices only on any console that was made after sometime around Sept of 09. The reason you probably heard the remarks of certainty pretaining to the "wii consoles of color" (gonna use that for something lol). Is that at one point the white consoles in retail were a mixture of ones that could play dvd backups, and ones that could not. At that time the only thing that was certain was the consoles, both red and black, could not read dvd-r disks.

    Now the whole thing, as far as retailers go, are not able to play disk backups. You may however be able to aquire an older one from a friend that can. But by now the drives are nearing their failing rate, if they have been in use all this time.

    In summary: get yourself a compatable USB device.

    Damn so the only option is a usb device...Is there a list where I can check them? I want to buy a case for an old 500gb sata disk, will I be able to use it?
    BTW I found another wii bundle, is the super mario bross wii bundle with a black wii, the same as the blue one...Will I be able to use letterbomb? Cant find info about that one either.
    Thanks a lot!

    HDD enclosures are hit and miss and you really won't know till you try it out. As far as modding the wii, I highly doubt that a new system menu will be on the blue wii or any other wii that you could go out and buy today so happy shopping.

    Whoever N has for marketing is either color-blind or they simply didn't do their jobs --- that's one UGLY color.

    i just done one last night for a neighbor using the letterbomb method. the only problem is the dang thing doesn't support GC stuff. not really a big deal but last nand i backed up needed a GC controller. risk aside, it was overly simply with the batch install. you used to have to install ioses one at a time. i say go for it and get a 1 yr extended warranty incase ya brick and have no nand backed up. that way you can return it to the store and bot deal with nintendo. it's pretty safe but there's always the slight chance of a mishap.


    about the cheapo wii, i think they should have done this sooner and should keep those prices. i see people online and on craigslsit all the time trying to pawn off a used machine at new or better prices. most often because it has a stack of shovelware and some dollar store plastic. one thing i didn't care for is the color. it appears to be working fine after a softmod. i was shocked to find they left out the GC stuff. just as bad no games included. i guess you get what you pay for.

    I just got one of these to mod in store, and when I opened it up its surprising, all the GC stuff is there but the port board is gone, however there is the socket for it , so maybe if you get a broken wii you can grab the port board and you will have full gc ability I put a wode jukebox on it and worked fine
