    What equipment do I need?

    Hey guys, whatsup.

    Anyway, I'm looking to mod my Wii to play some backups. However I have some questions.

    1. Do I only need an SD card? Is 2gb enough?
    2. If I install the HBC, do I still need the SD card?
    3. Where do I put the games? I've read around and is it possible without using discs or external HDDs?
    4. For messie's guide, can you replace the first step with smashstack?

    Thanks in advance guys.

    Thanks bud for the quick reply. Just a few more questions:

    Ok, I'll follow messie's guide exactly, and it seems to me that Verbatim discs are cheap so I'll use those. If I wanted to get games, do I just torrent it, then copy on DVD? It'll work for sure? I'd hate to waste a dvd.

    Your Wii must not have the D3-2 chip, otherwise only USB.
    DVD's are cheap, but anyway, if your ISO is good, you use imagburn at<x4 and you have all the right IOS it will work.
    For some people it works first time, others write post after post after post zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

    Most around here use IMGburn to burn Wii ISO to disc, GET IT HERE. Install IMBburn, then when you have a ISO on your computer, just right click on the ISO and select "burn with IMGburn".

    me slow again
