OK, I recently ordered a yowii flashed with YAOSM but I have a few questions before it's time to install and use it.

1. How do you burn wii isos? I have nero 8 and have noticed that the isos have multiple parts and file extensions such as .r00. How do I deal with these?

2. I have a 100 spindle of 16x Compusa dvd-rs, but I haven't heard if they are either good or bad for the wii. should they be fine?

3. lastly I was wondering if it's possible to de-solder a modchip, if I want to update it with a flasher or to update it while it's still in there.

Thank you for your time.

1) extract the rar files with software like winrar (www.rarsoft.com). nero 8 works fine to burn the iso files once extracted from the rars, i use nero 8 pretty much exclusively and haven't had any problems thus far.

2) nobody can really answer that, seems as though everybodies wii likes different types of media... worst case scenario is it doesn't like them. just burn the images like normal and see if they work

3) it IS possible, however i'd recommend buying an IC socket and putting the chip in that instead of soldering the chip directly. of course i believe the YAOSM dev is working on dvd upgradability which would make it so you don't need to take it in and out of the wii.

A Wii ISO is just a normal .ISO file, burn it with Nero. A downloaded ISO is often in archived format. Just uncompress it with WinRar for example.
as I understand it the yowii is supplied with a programmer and an external cable. That means you can reprogram the chip that way, there is no need to desolder it

    Guess you could fit one in there.

    The contacts are there, and the device already has charge control circuitry, but you have to buy and solder the battery yourself.
