    is there someway a nice person here can help me out....all i want do is play my burned wii game without modchipping my wii...and all yesterday i ran back and forth with my sd card, trying every possible program to run the DVD-r....help

    I just want a good straight-fporward list of instructions step by step and links to get the stuff to do this......im sure oyu guys and girls can feel my pain......

    Just downloading the homebrew channel won't get you to play illegally downloaded games [​IMG]
    Also, if your Wii is a newly bought Wii, be careful as it might have a DVD drive that doesn't read copied discs.

    Did you actually try it?

    For backup launchers to work, you need to install a cIOS
    And before you can do that, you need a trucha patched IOS [​IMG]
    That guide does have everything you need. Just e-mail the address for the files and follow the steps. No other way to do it...

    it seemed really complex reading it.....and i do think i have neogamma on my sd right now....idk how to wrok that. i think it froze cuz i got a black screen.

    I've tried installing cIOS...it worked, but then when i tried to load the backup loader or whatever its called i got the black screen there too...as for the trucha patched ios whats that?

    Dude just follow this guide. It mods a 4.2u console and its easy if you sit down and follow the instructions step by step. Don't just read it, think its too hard, and throw it away, it works and does what you need. Modding a Wii isn't gonna be as easy as "oh you just do this in one step", you're modifying and working around the code Nintendo wrote. Does that sound easy? Follow the guide and you'll see it's not nearly as hard as you think it seems.
