    If so please explain how our direct me to a source that explains how. I've searched around and can't find a straight answer that makes sense to me. Needless to say, I'm a noob at this, so please be patient. I own an NTSC Wii and have already formatted my HDD to be able to play Wii WBFS games from it. Thank you in advance. :yay:

    It depends. Do you have the original Wii Model, (with Gamecube slots) or do you have one of the new, recently released models. (No Gamecube ports.)

    If you have an original Wii, then the simplest way to do so, is through the use of crediar's DIOS MIOS (http://gbatemp.net/threads/dios-mios-lite.329342/) or tueidj's Devolution (http://gbatemp.net/threads/devolution-public-release.330554/)

    Note that if you're using DIOS MIOS, then you have to take care to follow each and every step to install it, and make sure that your drive is FAT32 (primary and active).

    If you're using Devolution, every game that you play needs to be verified at least once before you can play it. (You need an original retail disk that you rip the image from.)

    If you need any further instructions, just ask.
