    some info:

    version: 4.3E
    Has homebrew on it
    Has usb loader on it( When i start it up, It goes back to the menu)
    Its the white first wii.
    I have one nunchuck and one wii remote and a wii GC controller.
    It has wireless internet.
    It has 2 players in the wii channel, Above for normall wii games and one under that is a backup player.



    What i will do tomorrow :
    Buy a SD card 2gb
    Buy dvd-r's



    Now i got some questions:

    Do games run smooth like normal games when they're burned?

    Can you play games from a Usb stick ?( I got a 8GB 3.0 kengiston)

    Do games run smooth like normal games when they're burned? They do, but USB is much better (and faster) than DVD's nowadays.

    Can you play games from a Usb stick ?( I got a 8GB 3.0 kengiston) Yes you can, formatted to FAT32

    Do i need to install usb loader again? If its already installed, no.

    Can i burn Gamecube games just like wii games? Yes but they can also be ran from USB (again, formatted FAT32 with 32K cluster) from USB Loader GX

    where do saved games store? In the Wii's memory just like any other Wii game.

    Can i download from the store? Or will this unmod the wii? Yes you can, it won't unmod the wii.

    Means the channel its a shortcut to USB Loader GX, if it goes back to the menu then it means you don't have USB Loader GX installed onto your (sdcard:/apps/) folder.

    You need to create a folder on the root of your SD Card first named apps, then
    You just need to copy USB Loader GX's folder content onto your apps folder and then insert it on your Wii, boot up Homebrew channel and see if USB Loader GX appears there, if it does just boot it, if it boots successfully, you can now boot through the shortcut if you want to again.
    Its easy, its just copy - paste.

    Yes and no. If you run a burned disc game on a softmodded Wii (i.e. without the use of a hardware modchip), then the loading speed will be half the speed. With many games, one can't even tell. With other games, you will notice loading screens (visible or hidden) take longer. Burned discs is not the prefered method of backup-loading anymore. Assuming this is indeed a launch Wii (white doesn't mean launch), the disc drive should be old enough that this is a viable method of backup loading (albeit not preferred). If this is a newer Wii (~2009), backup disc loading is impossible.

    Yes, but you can only hold so many games on that USB stick at a time.

    Possibly. You need to install your USB Loader onto your SD card or USB drive in the apps folder. You can then launch it from the Homebrew Channel and perhaps the forwarder channel that's already installed.

    Assuming this is an old enough Wii, yes, you can play burned GameCube backup discs just like how one can play burned Wii backup discs. However, using DIOS MIOS to play backup GameCube games off a USB drive is the preferred method.

    For Wii games, saved games are stored on the Wii system whether they're retail or backup games. For retail GameCube games, they're stored on the GameCube memory card. For backup GameCube games, you have the option of using NMM to save games to wherever you're loading the backup from (if the game is compatible with this method).

    Yes, you can download from the store, but if it asks you to update before it will allow you access to the store, you need to update the Wii Shop Channel and/or the IOS file it uses. To do this, use ModMii. It's recommended you use ModMii to update your softmods anyway. You can run a sysCheck, drag it into ModMii, and have it do all the work for you.

    Skyward Sword is a Wii game, not a Wii U game. You can play it on your Wii, but you have to have Wii Motion Plus on a Wii Remote to play it.

    Disc loading isn't impossible, it just requires a modchip.
    Anyway disc loading should really be a last resort nowadays. If you can get a HDD somehow (ask for one for your birthday, or whatever you need to) then that's a much better solution. It's cheaper in the long run as you can fit a lot of games on and swap them out, load speeds are faster, and you can carry all your games with you without bringing all the discs.

    Depending on how new the Wii system is, modchips are also impossible without completely replacing the disc drive.

    If your USB drive is formatted as FAT32, you can create a folder called apps and put your homebrew applications in there like you would with an SD card. This is assuming your Homebrew Channel and/or forwarder channel are new enough that it supports this feature and is running using IOS58. If not, you will need to reinstall the latest Homebrew Channel with IOS58 installed. There's no harm in trying.

    Do you have a digital camera? You can just borrow its SD-card for the moment, if you want.

    Anyway, if you have the homebrew channel you can use your usb stick for apps for the moment, download sysckeck and post the report here. Then we can let you know if there's anything that needs to be updated, and how to do it.



    Actually I quite like the use of dvd-r for gamecube because it doesn't require replacing the original system MIOS with a hacked version, and we've long since moved away from using hacked IOS's (in the original slots). So personally, I think the two methods are equal, I wouldn't say that one is better than the other.

    So i want to play burned games. Where do i start? My friend already installed some stuff.

    I couldnt find the syschec.csv so i just write it down.





    syscheck v2.1.-b19 by double_a and R2-D2199,Nano
    ... runs on IOS58( rev 6176)

    Region: PAL
    System menu 4.3E (v514)


    Drive date: 2006.05.26
    Homebrew channel 1.1.0 running on IOS58
    Homebrewfilter ist nicht installiert
    Hollywood v0x11
    console ID: 68309209
    Boot 2 v4
    Found 102 titles
    Found 51 IOS on this console. 6 of them are stub.




    Not sure if the other stuff was important.



    Also if i start up back up channel player with the disc in it it just turn black screen and the remote turns off.

    You can install homebrew apps to your FAT32 USB the same way you would install them to your SD card. Create a folder called apps and put your homebrew applications in there. You can use ModMii to download recommended homebrew apps if you're so inclined.

    The two methods are equal, except when it comes to loading times, laser wear, requiring discs to burn, requiring a Wii made on or before ~2009, etc. Retail GameCube games work with DIOS MIOS installed in the MIOS slot. There's no drawback. GameCube disc backup loading also requires a custom MIOS installed in the MIOS slot, so I don't know what your point was.

    Follow this guide to successfully post a sysCheck.

    Burned games are not recommended. USB loading is the preferred method of backup loading including but not limited to the reasons I listed above. If you still want to use discs, then post a sysCheck and we will go from there.

    The other stuff is very important. Follow the above sysCheck guide.
