    Came on here and noticed all the threads about Black Wii's.

    I bought mine around a year ago and didn't see anything about this. How can I tell if I have to hack my Wii in a different way?

    Cheers

    There is only two ways to hack a Wii,any color. 1. Modchip 2. Softmod
    With the Black Wii's,if my info is correct, losses the ability to play Gamecube games. Also depending,it wont play backup's off dvd-r/dvd+r.

    This is why i recently bought a white Wii,so i can play my GC games i had laying around.

    I used Letterbomb to softmod my Wii,which i recommend. Check out this Youtube video,it will explain everything you need to do. Hope this helps.

    Google modmii, a one stop guide and downloading program. Run the wizard, answer the questions, follow the guide.

    A two year old wii can play gamecube games, it is the newly released holiday version that has lost the facility

    From another site specialising in hacking!
    "However, the optical drive included with black Wiis and newer white Wiis is the new D3-2 optical drive, which is only capable of reading original Wii and GameCube discs. This can be fixed by swapping drives with an older Wii"

    Further info
    Nintendo will release a Holiday Wii bundle this October 23. Nintendo is pulling a Sony here, removing backwards compatibility for Gamecube games.
    Fortunately you can still have a happy holiday and order the bundles that have the older version of the Wii ? in both white or black ?that supports Gamecube games. Those bundles ? which come with a copy of Mario Kart Wii and the steering wheel accessory ? are sold for $160 (USD), just $10 more than the stripped-down Holiday Bundle, but if you have several Gamecube games then I?m pretty sure this is still a no-brainer.

    It is the new wii launched this year that removed the gamecube connectors and hence the gamecube compatibility. Older black Wii's have these connectors and hence have the capability of playing original gamecube discs.
