    Question A few questions before i buy a wii

    Hi there

    So i am finally going to get myself a wii already brought GC controller + mem card and both models of classic controllers

    Just wondering about a few things , with the soft mod, can we play gamecube images?

    I read some models of wii can run DVD-R but lets just assume the model i get doesnt ,are there any apps that will let me play GC images from USB HDD?

    I was thinking of maybe getting a Wode Jukebox for this if softmod unable to play GC images, is it possible to run soft mod with a Wode also?

    Also can we still play online with softmod? and is it safe

    Thanks help would be much appreciated, really looking forward to playing alot of games ive missed out on

    - Dios Mios - for gamecube loading from HDD.
    - Only older Wii consoles (made prior to mid 2009) can read DVD-Rs.
    - Yes you can run a softmod along with a hardmod, but why would you want to? No need for a hard mod, softmodding does everything you need really...
    - Yes it is safe to play online.
    - Make sure the Wii you get has the GC ports. Some newer consoles dont have them.

    Make a post in the introduce yourself section of the site and someone will greet you with a bunch of helpful links.
