    Disc Drive Broken, Can I play games off a usb?

    My disc reader on my wii is broken and I sucessfully softmodded it. I've been trying to figure out how to play games of a usb or external hard drive, but can't seem to figure out how. I downloaded the iso file (for the games I own) and put it on a NTFS formatted usb but they don't come up anywhere. Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    To answer your question, yes, you can. One suggestion would be to learn how to rip your own ISO from your discs. Legally speaking, owning the game does not permit you to download the illegally distributed software.

    Follow the softmod any wii guide in the guide section. Too tired to link it right now...

    Thanks for the response babydaddy, I totally overlooked the format FAT32 guide. Everything is working as it should now.

    Cheers
