Soft modding a Wii

Want to have a crack at soft modding my Wii - the most important outcome is that I can play DVDs in it (i.e. retail movies).

What is the best method and guide you experienced people can point me towards?

That really is the most important outcome? To play DVDs. I am not convinced.

It's my sons Wii and we are moving it from the dining room to his bedroom. To be honest, he rarely uses it anymore - occasionally plays guitar hero. So I want it to double as a DVD player as well.

magicjay1986 - this is genuinely for playing DVDs only. If there's a method to do just that I'd be more than happy. I dont have the time or inclination to mess about downloading/copying games.

gizmat - thanks will check it out

dcx - to what extent? It's quite an old Wii anyway (2 years at least).

...two years for a Wii isnt actually that old. Considering the console is 4 years old in December.

Don't know about the playing DVD's bit but all I needed for softmodding mine was an old 2gb sd card, a guide and some modified files. Don't know if I can post a direct link but if you google 'gbatemp Modify any Wii' the top link is the guide I followed and where I got the files.

Thanks all. The idea was 2 birds with one stone ... put his Wii somewhere he will play it & enable watching of movies in his room ..... saving space in the meantime. If it really isn't a good idea to be playing movies on a Wii I may have to rethink. Maybe sell the Wii and get something else.

deek - thanks, that really is ingenious :-p
