Hi, I'm extremely new to the whole Wii softmodding thing.. I just followed the 'complete softmod guide' in this section of the forums today, and everything is working great. I'm burning games onto DVDs and they work fine, but I realised that there are a lot of games I wouldn't be able to do this with, in particular those on Dual Layer DVDs.

I figured the way around this would be to switch to loading games from a USB External Hard Drive, but I have no idea how I would go about doing this.
Can I just copy the files on my SD card to the HDD and plug it in and have it work?
Is there anything special I need to do to get dual layer games to run with a USB loader?

Thanks.

Thanks a bunch.

Whats all this about all different cIOS's and stuff though.. Its a little bit overwhelming and I don't want to end up bricking my Wii . The easy softmod guide was simple enough because it told me exactly what to install.
