    That is what is recommended for the Wii since the new players in the new Wii console can use other methods, such as DVD backups unless the disk is changed. If you have an old disk Wode would also allow the Wii to boot backups of DVDs, but from a new Wii console to boot from a USB device as an external hard drive. It takes 30 minutes to install everything and installed correctly. I recommend carrying an SD card with you.

    modchips.

    which is the best modchip to use, have been studying the solderless drivekey mod chip and thinking of getting this one, looks really easy to install, just so i can play backups and would this open up anything else giving me further options or just backups and make the wii region free and would the drivekey be ok with further updates????dont really know a lot about these...dont want to go down the road of installing the HBC, as the wii is for my kids so dont want to brick it....then i will be in trouble,

    i have a wii on 4.3e...purchased it about 2007-8

    also compatability????

    any info would be great... [​IMG]

    Do a softmod and with a modchip you cal also brick your wii by installing out of region update and if you have a d3-2 drive you CANNOT read DVD with any modchip
    the best would be to softmod, autoboot cfg loader and disable dangerous options (like erasing games)

    You will now need a drive modchip if you want to play GC audio streaming games
    Softmods can play discs with no problem

    like i said the wasabi dx looks most favourable..........to enable backup play.......also the usb loader thing...i take it the wii would need softmod for this to work....??? does anyone have any suggestions for burning wii games...most have said imgburn....but when aquired it scanned fine until try and run it and it detects malware!!.............
