    I was wondering if there is a way to play wii roms on the wii itself that are in an SD card.
    I am not so sure about hacking my wii. So if there are possibilities not involving hacking those
    would be great. But overall I would like to know all options. :/ Thank you.

    alejolink11, please explain what you mean in more detail. Are you talking about Wii Games, or like, old SNES games?

    wii doesn't play roms it plays iso's, but yeah just hook yourself up with a good usb loader, it's been common knowlege for quite a while now.

    i can only recommend configurable usb loader here http://gbatemp.net/t147638-configurable-usb-loader?
    since it's the one i use but there might be others

    Any retro roms can be played from an SD card, however, Wii Isos can not be played as the SD card is almost always too slow.

    It is possible to run retail Wii games from an SD card. You just have to get the proper loader (I think you can with Neogamma).

    It honestly seems like you are extremely new to the Wii modding scene and I would suggest you go to this thread:

    http://gbatemp.net/t171901-modify-any-wii-4-2-below

    If you follow this guide to the word you should be able to get your Wii hacked no problem. I do however recommend you read the "CompleteSoftmodGuide" that is linked within that guide because you will learn a lot about Wii modding.

    You have to hack your wii to do this and it is kind of confusing but people on this website are very helpful and their are guides. It takes a long time to download wii games though. If i were you and serious about playing up "backed up" wii games i would either burn them to dvd-r and using a backup loader or using configurable usb loader which lets you play games off by plugging in an external hard drive into the usb port in the back of the wii. (both of these requires hacking)

    nonsense takes an hour for me and all you have to do is install wans cios rev17 (at least) and a usb loader and your good to go. if you've never hacked your wii use banner bomb and install the hbc and wad manager it's EASY. use this guide: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=171...t=0&start=0
    if you need a tutorial on how to install wii ISO onto a hdd check my youtube page. over 100,000 views so it must be good [​IMG]

    Torrents are good if have patience. Gotta be careful though.
