    I haven't used my Wii in a long time. The last time I used it was for Punch Out in which I had to my Wii to 4.0U. Now, I am trying to get the New Super Mario Bros. Wii to work, but every time I tried to load it, I get a 002 error, which happened before when I tried to load Punch Out before updating to 4.0U.

    I've been out of the Wii hacking loop and I was wondering what do I do to get myself back up to date to be able to play all the newest games?

    Thanks in Advance.

    USB Loaders are the way forward.

    I heard something about USB Loader, so I should invest in an external hard drive?

    yes definitely. usb loading is much faster compared to disc loading. plus if NSMB backup cannot be loaded on the disc channel unless you are hard modded. NSMB backups for soft modded wii could be loaded through usb loading only for now.

    i run this game off neogamma r8 beta 7 cios249rev14 by using usb loading and disc loading...my wii is hard modded btw. [​IMG]

    From what I heard, there are some reports that it does work on cIOS rev15.
    Can't confirm it though, am also a USB-playa [​IMG]

    Check the NSMB topic, first page.

    Also, How would newer retail game work?

    Which ones are the recommended ones? I don't really want an external hard drive that needs to be plugged in with a power cable.

    do know that the wii's usb ports don't put out regulation power. so usb powered drives will most likely not work unless you get the cable that has two usb connections. but then you're losing the other usb port to provide power.

    if you got a spare drive kicking around, just get a usb enclosure for it.

    Not for everyone. Some people are using the same method and getting different results. Maybe to do with the drive type?

    Really? Damn, I guess I'd have to get the hard drive with a power cord.

    I saw, but I guess I'd rather be on the safer side. Also, the 1TB hard drive posted by the other poster costs the same as the 500gb Toshiba I listed so I guess I'll get the 1TB one.
