    as I understand it, softmod forces the dvd drive into video dvd mode and that's hardware limited to 3x

    You can run backups at 6x or faster using the usb loader.[​IMG]

    Fact: The wii was made to play DVD videos but only at 3x speed...

    The cios or loader or something tricks the wii into thinking the backup is a dvd video but it can only read it at 3x
