    Newby here with a few questions.

    I understand wii games need to be burned with imgburn or nero. Do I need a 'modded' wii to burn and play games I download from usenet? Do the disks need to be dual layer burned by a specific player?

    Question 1. - burn, no (Wii doesn't burn games anyway); play - yes.

    Question 2. - most games are single layer only a few (SSBB and maybe some other new titles) are dual layer. Any burner will work.

    You will pay a ridiculous markup for a pre-modded wii. Best bet is to check craigslist for a local mod installer or a used modded wii.

    I found a website that will sell me a modded wii for 400+. Is this reasonable?

    I can't tell you what is reasonable.

    What I can tell you is what I paid.

    Wii - $249.99 plus tax
    Wiikey $ 30.00 shipped
    Installation $80.00 (cut pins) same day service.

    Ya I've paid:

    Wii-$285 (sold out, had to buy from some guy)
    D2CPro w/ Wii-Clip soldered-$70

    Installation-Priceless

    You should just go with the ones that go with the Wii-Clip, because they are solderless to the Wii, and only take about 3 min to install!

    I got the Wii locally, with tax was about $270
    Had it modded with WiiKey locally, $80

    $400 shipped for a working modded Wii isn't too bad a price...

    If you are talking about SRZ (South African Rand)

    2,800 South African Rand = 374.670 US Dollar

    700 South African Rand = 93.66741 US Dollar
