    I'm extremely new at this. Please help.

    Hi guys, I'm Nick and I'm new here. I have a few questions concerning my Wii. I just bought it yesterday. It's the new black one with the 4.2 software, and I have soft-modded it already. I bought it mostly to play some old gamecube games, and to play a few Wii games as the come out. I'm using a 750gb HDD and was told at the time that gamecube games could run from the HDD itself. Turns out I was lied to. So my question is, is there a way to make it work. Either with a different conversion, WODE, different program/mod, etc. I've heard the new Wii's come with a different drive and they cannot read burned disks. So please help me with this problem and have pity on me for my horrible understanding of this. I'm leaning towards the WODE as it seems to work. But can anyone tell me how good it actually is? I appreciate all of you for helping a noob.

    ~Cheers!

    You can play game cube games from disc only not hdd so yes i'd say you were mis informed-

    Your wii being new probably points to a new chipset which doesnt read backup discs.

    I have heard along the grapevine that GC from USB is being worked on but when we see it is unknown

    Not 100% with HardMods so cant really give you any advice there.

    if you want to use wii games(backups) I suggest using a usb, because i had no problems what so ever with loading games
    and it is much faster as well

    There are two different routes that you can choose for modding your wii. You can either Hard-mod your wii with mod-chips or you can Soft-mod. We have a in-house trusted supplier for mod-chips Here, very trusted site, and great customer service. When and if you going to hard-mod your wii there is a great section here on the forum. Mod-Chip Section

    On the Flip-Side you can soft-mod you wii using only a SD Card... The guides that are here have been tried and tested and do work... DON'T FOLLOW FAIL-TUBE VIDS.... The first step that you need to do is find out what system menu version your wii is. After you find out that piece of information there are two guides that you can use.
    If you are on 3.1-4.1 system menu you can use the guide by dogeggs: [[Guide]]
    If you are on the 4.2 system menu the you can use the guide by Shadowsonic2: [[Guide]]
