    Help me save some money

    I read somewhere that you can't boot from USB storage with 4.2, I safely updated to 4.2 and have the software working, but I don't think my wii will read discs so before I go buy a hard drive is it true that they don't work with 4.2? I searched the forums to no avail sorry if this was answered somewhere else and i didnt see it.

    Its not the 4.2 that kills discs, but a new drivechip that's in newer wiis. If you don't want to spend the money on a hdd, softmod and try to load from discs first. If nothing else you'll have to softmod to load from hdd anyways. No harm in trying.

    Yeah I know its the drive that stops discs from loading, and I think I have one of those drives. My question is will a WD HDD work for sure with software 4.2?

    Yes. As long as it's on the compatibility list. I think there's a link to the list in the usb loading link in my signature.

    OK thanks where ever I read that 4.2 cannot read USB harddrives was wrong then, I was just making sure before I spend the dollars on it. So theres no reason it shouldn't work I followed the Ultimate hack guide on the forum flawlessly and I can boot into all the backup apps fine just cant load from disc.

    Just follow the 4.2 guide in my signature and you'll be fine. It has everything you will need to play in it. Also, don't use any guides that aren't from this site. Anyone who posts bad info on here is usually corrected or drug down the street instantly tied to a truck...

    edit-referring to usb loading.
