    Big hello to all members from the newbie.

    A complicated thread to start me off...........

    I have previously had my wii chipped and have no idea what version the chip is as a friend of a friend did it over a year ago.

    My version of software on the wii is ver.3.4E

    I would like to start playing my wii backup files from a new hard drive that I have just bought instead of burning iso discs.

    The hard drive is 500gb and arrived formatted as NTFS.

    I would prefer to keep my hardrive as a single partition so that i can store games and other media like movies to move the drive to my PS3 to play them and save pc space.

    My main question is can I install programs to my wii despite having previously had the thing chipped.

    If this is possible and having looked into it a bit(without really understanding it much!) I think I would need to do the following -

    1. format my hardrive to fat 32.

    2. install homebrew compatable(if poss) to my 3.4e version.

    3. get a usb loader from somewhere to work on homebrew to allow me to access games from my hard drive

    4. work out a way to convert the iso's I download to wbfs format so I dont have to partiotiom my drive and keep it fat32 with a mix of games and movies/files.

    So there you go now the help......

    If you think I ahve worked the requirements out correctle of need to add/delete steps could you advise please.

    More importantly as I am pretty much computer illiterate(I can research but am hopeless at actually doing things) would you be able to point me in the direction of each step required.

    I would love to spend some time messaging someone who could give more than a brief summary over a few days to save the board giving me a ribbing for being so thick [​IMG]

    Anyway look forward to your knowlegable responses

    I will research that Ultra but not the type of post this chick understands...... install it first before what?.

    Before all the things I mentioned, after the first but before the third.

    Simple instructions that cannot be mixed up please - prefer full instructions from start to finish

    Thanks hun.
