    Newbie Dad buys kids 1st video game, knows nothing.

    Hello Everyone,
    This is my first thread, so please forgive my ignorance and questions. We just got a Wii and have never owner any other since an Atari that I had when I was a kid. So we have no idea about what it can do. We will start to walk before running as they say. I have done searching and lots of reading and see that this is beyond my wisdom right now. My kids cousins has some Wii games and we would like to make copies and eventaully download off the net. But 1 step at a time. I have a 5 year old computer that I use to burn movies of the net with Nero program. Can I use this to burn original copies of Wii as well? Next do I have to put the SD card or soft mod(or any other software) to play the burnt copies on our Wii? I read taht burn on low speed with dvd-R discs. So I know one thing.
    Thanks
    Ken

    You need to soft mod or hard mod your wii to get the benifits of back up games.
    A usb hdd is probably what you are going to have use to play your back ups from anyway as you probably have the newer drive chipset which will not allow you to play backups from disc. You can then rip your games through your wii drive to your ex hdd.

    Make a post in the introduction section and someone will welcome you to the forum and give you a load of useful links to get you started. All I can say is read and learn..

    Hi Thanks,
    To Mod it, I will need a SDcard. I read 2MB is ok. DO you agree? Also is there a language button? It is in all Japanese and I can't read Japanese.
    Thanks

    Yes, there is a language button. 2GB is fine. SD cards of 2MB are not enough,

    Hello, I was talking about the wii options area and on the machine. How do I change to English? I looked at it and clicked on the wrench and went through it but could not find English. I'm I looking in wrong area?
    Thanks
