How do I play GC backups on an unmodded Wii??(I've got The Homebrew Channel)

I heard you need something like GCbooter?

Please make my wish come true my fellow GBAtemp-mates.

Actually it is possible, but it requires an SD Gecko/Wiikey SD adapter. Basically an SD card adapter for the GC memory card slot. However it is hardly worth the effort since few games load and the ones that do load have horrid audio/video problems. Of the dozen or so games i tried only Wind Waker and Super Mario Sunshine worked and neither had music.

A hardmod is still the best way to go. And there's an awesome new generation of chips coming. No more soldering required, Just open the Wii, connect a flatcable and that's it

My chip is pretty old (a 1st generation one, but it is 001-compatible) and it's still working fine. But now with this new generation of chips, I'm really thinking about installing a new one. Especially the one with ISO loading directly from an external SATA hard drive looks really interesting.

that's one of them. It doesn't load DVD backups, but needs an external computer to recieve the ISO's from

and this product (if real) should load them from an external drive directly, without the need for a computer: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=129810&st=0
And I believe (not sure though) DriveKey acts like a normal modchip, loading backup DVD's.

little thing called SD-Boot though GC Booter, play GC Backups on a Un Modded Wii, Compatibly isn't very good though and requires a sd gecko
so it is possible and i myself have tried it, But it anit very good, so a hardmod is the best Way

There's a Wii-Boss in my Wii. That's a small circuit board with a 12F629 programmable chip on it and a small flatcable that comes out at the back of the wii. I can use that to update the chip with a programmer. Now YAOSM is programmed onto it. After the new 001 protection, I just loaded the new updated version and since then all games are working fine.
