** I have glanced at the stickies and I am still in the process of doing research. I am a noob when it comes to much of the lingo and current programs, so I apologize if my ignorance offends anyone.** I have just purchased a 32gb Wii U and I am interested in playing copied versions of Wii games. The last time I copied games was when I use to burn Playstation 1 games, so I am out of the loop in terms of copying games now. I want to avoid downloading wii games/roms from the internet. Anyway... Here are my questions: 1.) Can I copy wii discs onto my computer; transfer them to an external hard drive; and then play them through the vwii homebrew channel? 2.) Can I copy Wii games directly from my Wii U to an external hard drive? 3.) If "YES" to both #1 & #2, which method would be the easiest? Is there any easier method that I didn't list? 3.) Besides needing to have the Vwii Homebrew Channel, do I need anything else besides a USB Loader? Thank you for your time.
