Hi - first post and all. I am looking to play backup games via an external hard drive - mostly guitar hero, racing games and a few kids games. I loaded some stuff onto my Wii a while ago but it was a bit hit and miss with some games and performance was an issue with games like Need for Speed which I wanted to play in backup mode. From what I hear it is easier to do now and I can also play films through the Wii now easily. I am looking for some help on what I should do. My plan is to follow the steps in the top sticky, couple of questions though: Can I start form scratch even though I have some stuff already on there? I had to do the Zelda thing to get it wortking before. Online or Offilne - which is better? I have a new 2Gb SD card which I have formatted ready for use. The one is my Wii just now is just a 256.
