If you want to run backups through your external drive Uloader is the best choice.
If you want to run backups through your main drive you should use neogamma r9 (however if your drive is new you can't play backups through your drive)
My suggestion is to play backups through an usb loader because it will preserve the drive len's life.
Well thanks again bud, you ALWAYS reply quickly ;D, well I guess uloader it is, but I recently had a disc read error with Scooby Doo and the Spooky Swamp...and I heard maybe a different loader might make it work, so I softmodded the Wii..
Yep I followed your lovely ModMii thread and softmodded my Wii without any problem, I even installed Cave Story and Sonic 4 and they work perfect!! Your guide is A1! Ill be sure to recommend it to my friends when they need help in softmodding...Now I just need a Hard-drive for CFG USB Loader...
