    I've been out of the loop for a little while so I don't know if anything's changed. I modded a wii for a friend a while ago and installed the configurable USB loader with an external HD.
    His console was one of the newer ones that didn't play backup discs, but it still played originals.
    You should still be able to play originals without any problems right? or has something changed that I'm not aware of?

    He said his daughter put in an original game and it gave her a message saying that it will erase all programmed games. I haven't seen it for myself so I don't know exactly what it was showing on the screen so I thought I'd ask here before telling him its ok to play the game.

    Screw up softmod: yes. Screw up wii :no.
    To bypass those message you need priiloader installed with suitable hacks.

    if you modded it originally with cios/dark corps, yes, it can have problems playing originals.

    and if the game inserted is threatening to install a system update, then again yes, it can stub the cioses you installed, rendering it desoftmodded.

    You could get problems with newer games, because newer games will use newer IOSes, you will need to install them manually if you don't want to make a system update. To remove this message, install priiloader like Magsor mentioned and enable the disable disc updates hack.

    its been a while so I can't remember exactly what I did now.

    I was following the modify any wii 4.3( I think it said 4.2 at the time) & below COMPLETE SOFTMOD GUIDE
    I did install priiloader, and recall setting it to block updates.

    It shouldn't affect the games on the external drive , though , right?
    So, worse case scenario is that he'll lose the softmod and I'll have to mod it again?
    as long as it doesn't mess up the hard drive and I don't have to re-install the games that's all that matters.

    your question is kind of confusing.

    You're trying to boot a game from the disc channel?
    What exactly does the message say?
    What is the current system menu version? 4.3u?

    yes , I think he's trying to just load a game from the disc channel.
    I haven't actually seen what it said , since he just emailed me today. he just said the message said it will erase all programmed games. I don't know what programmed games it could be referring to , that's why I'm posting.
    When I did the softmod , the latest system menu was 4.2 , and hasn't been updated since then.

    thanks for the replies everyone.
