    like my last post, trying to do things on my wii that my broken mac could do.


    is there anway to download films etc... from rapidshare onto the sd card in the wii and for a bonus point then unrar them so i could miss out the computer completely?

    shame, this would be excellent if possible. Would it be technically possible, ie in the future could someone write something to do it or could an updated opera do it, or is there a technical reason?

    Well, theorically you could try installing Linux on your Wii. That should be capable of doing all these things.

    I've never tried myself, though :/

    It's possible... just not now. You'd have to write a completely new browser, and then only allow saving to the SD card (so you don't pootch your NAND)... then you'd have to write a WiiWinRar app to unrar the files....

    good luck to ya!
