    Question Newbie seeking for help

    Hi,

    I've recently bought wii that has D3-2 drive. After browsing this forum for few days, I still have some questions.
    Most of you guys suggests us to make a softmod (since hardmod won't read dvd backups).
    What I'm wondering is this; The only thing I need to softmod Wii and read games from HDD is an external HDD (planning to buy 1TB digital elements)? Will it still be possible to play original games via DVD drive, after that softmod/HDD mod?

    Best regards,
    Alan

    I think I screwed the subforum right?

    With D3-2 drive, you will only be able to play games off of a USB HD (in the scenario you painted). Essentially you'd have to source an image of a given game and put it on the HD via WBFS Manager. There's no way a D3-2 drive will play a backup of a Wii or GC game, sorry.

    d3-2....if you go the softmod route you wont be able to play back ups of gc games......you can load wii games through usb....

    only way to get both for your drive would be wode or sundriver (hardmod)

    I could've sworn this was in the newbie section of the site to begin with... did anyone move it? Thanks to anonymous for alerting me as to it was in the wrong category (whether OP fail or a thread move, I dunno). Being that I participated in it earlier, I'd like to think I would've caught this...

    Thanks for the replys guys. But still one question wasn't answered. If I softmod/HDD mod my Wii, will I still be able to load my ORIGINAL (legit) games via DVD drive?

    Yes. You will still be able to play originals via DVD drive.
