    edit: and you guys are forgetting the fact that without a working drive he has no way of backing up his games.
    Bandicoot covered that issue in post #4.
    ''But how can I get games on the harddrive if the DVD-drive is broken?''
    There are special DVD-drives for the PC which allow you to dump a Wii-disc in the form of an ISO. Perhaps you could bring a visit to a friend/family member, and rip your games to your harddrive using his/her Wii.

    Those drives are far and few between. There are 3 or 4 models of an LG DVD drive that will but good luck finding one. I'm sure you could google and find one but you would be better off in the long run to either fix or replace the drive. At least that's what I would do.

    Thanks again!

    But, i'm still confused ... what is a forwarder channel and how do i determine if one of these channels is a forwarder?

    You need to resoftmod before you can do anything. 4.3 removed your softmods. If your Wii is old enough that you was able to install Bootmii as boot2 then you can softmod again without a working drive. Other then that you are out of luck without a working drive.

    It's a few years old, and i can't remember if i had installed BootMii ... how do i determine if i did install it?

    There is a Bootmii_cfg_ed folder on my SD card in the APPS directory.

    Turn your Wii on and watch the drive light. If it flashes twice then you are in luck witch means you have Bootmii/Boot2. If it flashes only once then your either don't have Bootmii at all or it is installed as an IOS and you are out of luck.
