** Need helping in order to finally use my Wii the way I want to! **
First of all, I'd like to thank everyone who contributes to the forum, I read all the stickies and they helped a lot with the homebrew install but I have some specific questions. I initially tried to install everything to play my backups a few months ago but then had to take a break when my brother got really sick to take care of him so now I'm in the middle of everything and pretty confused as to what to do. I have a couple of backups of Wii games that I want to be able to play on my Wii (only a few but still, I want to be able to play them). But more importantly, I want to play some nostalgic SNES/NES games that I want to install emulators for on my Wii. I would also like to be able to play DVDs with my Wii and if possible, stream content from my shared folders (music and movies) if this is possible? This is where I've left off:
I have the homebrew channel installed and I have a USB with like the 3 backup files of my Wii games on it (the USB is in NTFS format and I installed the files using Wii BackUp Manager)
1) Now my questions are what ios or cIOS or combinations thereof do I need to have on my Wii to play the games. I am so confused as to which ones to use, admittedly even after reading the stickies/and other wikis online, and I am not sure which one is best/better to use for my needs.
2) What do I need to do to be able to play DVDs? Do I just install WiiMC (the latest version is v1.3.2?) and then any DVD i put in should work?
3) Is streaming music/movies off of a file server a possibility for the Wii? What do I need to do to accomplish this?
4) Finally, I cant figure out how to format my SD card that contains all of my apps and emulators correctly (sorry if this information is somewhere, I searched but couldn't find it). How is the SD Card supposed to be organized? What is the root folder supposed to be, I remember one folder for apps, and one for each program I use? If anyone can give me a link to how I am supposed to organize it so that it works it would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you all so much and happy new year!
