    The letterbomb method only works on Wii system update (4.3), you may have to update your console if that's not the version you are on.

    Just search back a few days the letterbomb message will be there

    Assuming it's an old Wii console, the one with the Gamecube ports, use ModMii. It's a program that asks you basic questions about your console, Firmware version, region, Mac Address etc. It then downloads all the necessary files to transfer to your SD card, and generates a guide based on the answers you gave.

    Make sure your Wii is

    a. 4.3 system update if not.

    b. set to today's date.

    c. your using the correct mac code when generating the letterbomb i.e not using O instead of 0

    Thanks guys will have another go. Im wondering if the letterbomb has unzipped properly as when i try to unzip it it appears to be unzipped already and offers only option to compress

    Following this thread and the new one you posted.. about to do the same to my Wii. Just need to find an old SD card.. only have SDHC around the house and I heard they won't work.

    I didn't put any emulator on yet, but managed to get some wii backups working last night, finally. Took a while as I was using a mac and didn't have a windows PC around.
