    i bought a second hand wii u that has been soft modded to play games from a sd card but i found out you cant play these games online so i bought call of duty from cex but at first the disc would not even insert into the drive it , was almost as though there wasnt enough strength to drag the disc in! but , eventually after a bit of pressure it went in but says invalid disc.

    do i need a new drive?
    is it simple to change?
    should i get my money back? it was £100 and the guy said i could have money back . he also said he had never even played a disc on it as he had all games downloaded.
    im worried if i return it i wont be able to mod another wii myself ......
    cheers for reading

    NO COFFEI!
    It's less of molding and more of literally entering a URL. Anyway there's some slightly more advanced things and you can install these games to your home menu with online Play! ^_^

    If you have a ton of storage (sd card or usb) why not keep it! I know by browsing the Temp in the Wii.U section you can find some important links! I'll edit the post if I find some.

    This is definitely something to look at: http://gbatemp.net/threads/wii-u-usb-loading-install-wiiu-games-to-usb-or-internal-memory.445514/ ! It'll pretty much give ya the method and info. I recommend waiting for a bit though because it's still buggy and in development.
