    why get a chip when u can softmod?

    if its a NEW wii, u cant play backup DISKS with the drive... not a problem for wii games because u can play them off a USB hard drive, but to play gamecube games u need to replace the new d3-2 dvd drive with an older one (or get an sd gecko and u can play then when emukidd releases his new app to play GC games via an sd gecko)

    old wii's can do everything without a modchip

    new wii's can do almost everythign without modchip

    No one here will recommend a chip, including me. I'd say softmod; there's a guide in the wii hacking stickies. But if I recommend a chip, I'd say WODE

    I agree. Softmodidng is free and easy but the WODE is supreme. Wiis DVD drives die after a while so you want to be loading from HDD if you can. The best way to do that inho for GC games is a WODE.

    So if you've got the cash get a WODE, if not softmodidng is the way to go until you get the cash together for a WODE.

    WODE for GC games on HDD...
    Softmodding for USB loading and WiiWare

    Wode is a nice very nice product.
    Especially now with the new hardware approach.
    And there is a new upcoming coverflow-like interface.

    Using uLoader yu can have your game saves on HDD/SD (the Wii's nand is only a half gig)

    A mod chip can't do that, so if you only use a mod chip and have a few games with big saves expect to "juggle" them around when you want to play.
