EDIT: Decided I have no choice but to cave and buy a USB HD, as I've never had any need for an external drive, I don't know much about them, and even less when it comes to whats needed for this. So, is anything wrong with this one? Or will it work just fine for storing and loading back ups? http://store.westerndigital.com/store/wdus.../catid.13092800 Let me first say that yes, I do in fact realize all the information I need is on this site and various others on the web. I beg some kind soul to please help me, though. I have been reading and watching videos for like the past 6 hours and am no closer to getting this thing to load my backups than I was when it was still in the box. I'll try to make this simple and provide what little knowledge you'll need to properly inform me. What I have: 1. Brand New Wii, version 4.2u 2. Brand New Nintendo SD Memory card 3. Numerous other sd cards of various sizes. What I DON'T have: 1. Wii internet connection 2. USB storage device (USB flash drive, hard drive, etc..) 3. Apparently, enough intelligence to store and sort through the massive amount of information I've come across. What I need: Clear and simple step-by-step instructions on soft modding my wii 4.2u without the use of an internet connection on the wii, or any usb stuff. All I'm working with here, unfortunately, are SD cards and lots of DVD-r's, also, my dvd burner is generic enough that no matter what I try I'm not able to change the book type with ImgBurn. Again, I'm really sorry to ask this, it's just that I've come to the point that I'm completely lost in the mound of information.
