    I heard i should install WAD or something like that. And preloader is popular, what are they for and are they nessesary?

    And i want to backup zelda twilight princess, any ideas how to do so? So i can run zelda afterwards from my 320gb external harddrive?

    help would be appreciated.

    Dont use preloader a) It may be popular but there is a risk it can fuck yah wii and B) BootMii, a more professional and safer alternative to Preloader is coming out in mere weeks

    as for wads their are many types of wads, Channel WADs, IOS WADs so always seek advice when it come sto WADS. As for backing up Zelda, you can dump TP to a USB using USB Loader, connect the hard drive to a computer and using WBFS Manager, send the iso to your PC burn using ImgBurn then use Backup Loader to run it.

    Use an empty USB Drive as using it in USB Loader requires a format

    60% of the topics there will help you.

    And of course you can run it off of USB. Try actually researching instead of having everything spoonfed.

    For lots of things. System files (IOS), Channel files, Virtual Console and WiiWare files, and so on.
