    Question N00b needs help

    I just bought a modded Wii console with a wii key... system works fine as far as i can tell.. but i thought the wii could play dvd movies.. i pop in a dvd and it says incorrect disc.. originals and backups.. should i update the wii firmware.. he said not to update unless necessary.. its 3.2U i think...let me know.. cus i know i read somewhere that said they do play dvds after some update but i dont want to update if it will mess with my wiikey.. thanks for any help and hope to become somewhat of an active member..

    oh this is simple
    go to homebrew channel . com
    download the ISO install
    burn it
    put it in the wii
    run it
    install Homebrew channel
    get a sd card
    make it Fat not fat 16 just fat via formating
    then make a folder called "apps"
    download this
    put the folder in the apps folder
    rename the elf or dol to boot
    if you use hbc 9, and its not a dol update it to a dol
    then you can play dvd's
    hbc can do other things, feel free to search wiibrew for what those are, since i dont know what youll want to do

    if you want some more help on other things try this

    because in 3.3v2 they made a patch to the fake sign bug, so you cant use edited discs without running a program in homebrew channel, or patching it with homebrew channel

    thanks a bunch Admiral... .. im slowly gonna try to decipher what you said and make it work.... would really like it to play dvds... and another question, can the wii play divx/xvid movies..is there an app to install like a media player that will allow it to play divx/xvid or wmv files.... and why wont the wii recognize my usb drive or will it... or does everything have to go thru the sd slot?.. i know they sound stupid.. but i did a little searching and couldnt find anything that answered this question.. thanks again for any help

    you cant atleast i dont think so, i dont really care about that stuff i got a laptop so i dont keep up to date with it

    as for usb drive
    the big N is anti pricy so to prevent you from loading games from a external hard drive you cant use any flash drives or anything only SD, also since the SD is native to the wii and utalizes it the most, its all that works

    good luck installing, its quite easy ^^

    i couldnt find the homebrewchannel.com... but i did find this : hxxp://homebrewchannel.zoomshare.com/ ... but i didnt find the ISO you are talking about that i can burn to a cd/dvd so it installs the homebrew channel.. i found the mplayer and i after reading some.. i think it will play divx/xvid stuff just on memcard or cd... got to toy with it guess... i only see where you have to have the zelda game and so forth but i thought having a wiikey was suppose to make that unnecessary... if you can link where the download is that i need to just burn and load it would be greatly appreciated... i usually dont stay up this late but now im on a mission.. so if you can help.. i do need some sleep
