I have a new console with 4.2u and want to softmod and play games from a USB drive (I think). I want to protect the original discs so I am considering either burning backup copies or loading the game discs on a USB drive and playing from there. The issue is my lo-tech spouse. Is using a softmod Wii any easier or trickier depending on whether the games are on a USB hard drive or on burned copies? Semi-related... is there any hope for reliable NAND backups for a 4.2u boot2v4 console?
