Hi, I'm new to all this and don't want to kill my kids wii. We have one downstairs which works fine, and one upstairs that the kids used to play a lot, this one does not read discs anymore, but everying else works ok. I'm being told I can easily softmod both of the wii, use the working one to backup our discs to a HDD and play them on the second one. Here are my questions: With 1 HDD can I store and play backed up GameCube/Wii images made on the first Wii, on the second? If so, is there a tutorial for this? What is the best method for softmodding that doesn't require a working optical drive? Thanks for your time.
