    I was asked by my friend can I get a modchip for him. The last chip I got for myself was a D2Pro Solderless Chip, over 2 yrs ago.
    Which is the best available modchip around at the moment.
    I just want a chip that will allow his kids to put in the burned dvds and play the games. Simple and easy.
    I done a google search and found a few chips like these.

    Wasabi DX
    Wiikey Fusion
    Drivekey Wii

    Any ideas which is the best to buy.
    Thanks

    SOFTMOD

    look in to this first, you can play from burnt discs (providing you do not have a newish wii that will not be able to read them) or USB - one hard drive no discs to get loat or scratched

    Thanks for the info.
    The guy I'm doing it for isn't technically minded. I want to make it as simple as possible for him. I have the iso`s backed up on my hard drive and I will burn them to DVD for him.
    His Wii is around 8months old. Dont know if this will make a difference or not.

    Softmod - if your wii is 8 months old then the only way to play from a disc would be a chip.

    However he can play from a hard drive, all that is required is a 1 or 2GB Sd card for the Wii and a compatible hard drive, the games are scrubbed as they are added to the hard drive (wiibackup manager)so game sizes are 60MB to 7GB depending on the game, 2GB average, so a 160GB hard drive should hold around 80-90 games.

    Download Modmii (google will find) run the wizard on your PC and it will download all the files and add them to the SD card, follow the guide and the Wii is ready. Format the HDD to Fat32 (better compatibility) use wiibackup manager to transfer the games.

    The softmod seems the way to go allright. I was doing a check on various sites and it seems ok. I couldn't find a compatible hard drive list. Will a portable hard drive do or the plug types.
    I also have iso`s on my hard drive, Can I convert them using back up manager on to the new hard drive. Can the back up manager make back ups of my original games.
    Once again thanks for your help.

    Compatible hard drives - yes 2.5" portables work fine, I use a Seagate Go Flex usb2, WD passport also work great. Check "usb compatibility list wii" on google, there is a wiki list.

    The backup manager can convert from iso to wbfs and back again - you can store them on your pc as wbfs files and they will take up a lot less room.

    For original games, with the hard drive connected to the wii, start the cfg, gx or wiiflow backup loader and they see the disc, they check if its on the hard drive and rip it straight from the wii to the hard drive for you, to back it up on the PC connect the wii hard drive and drag and drop to the PC. Some loaders will need you to select the add to hard drive option, just read the instructions for the loader you choose to use.

    Many thanks for that, and all your help.
    You have made my job away easier.
    Once I have it done for one person I know I will be asked do do it again for other people.
    Once again thanks for all your help,

    I finally got around to doing it. I done it for myself and works like a charm. Should have done it years ago.
    It beats having discs everywhere.
    Once again thanks for all your help guys.

    What is the best way to edit the titles to keep them in order when they are displayed on screen.
    Im using CFGLoader for the loader on my hard drive.
    Im editing the names in the file titles.txt.
    When I go back on to the screen they are still in the old order.
    I want to keep all the Marios together, Disney Princess games together etc.
    Are my missing out on something.?
