    Go to WiiHacks.com, and read up on Homebrew & usb loaders, as well as modchips for the Wii. If it's a newer system tho, modchips don't work on the internal drive, so you're only choice is homebrew/usb loaders (or drive replacement).

    Most DVD readers won't be able to read the discs, there are 1-2 (maybe a couple more) models that can read and backup Wii discs to a PC. The best way (IMO) is to use a USB Loader with an external harddrive plugged into the Wii. You can run a homebrew software to backup your Wii discs to the USB device and play the games directly from there.

    Pros:
    Much faster loading times
    No need to burn DVDs

    Cons:
    Need to buy a USB harddrive for this (or use an old one)
    Might not work on newer Wiis

    Like heffe2001 said.. go to Wiihacks and read up..

    edit: I did not pay 1 cent for anything to mod my Wii.. the only thing you might have to pay for is a USB harddrive. If you need to pay for software, you are using the wrong software.

    To be able to play backups and use homebrew software: look for Softmod
    USB loader I currently use: CFG USB Loader

    USB Loader is software.

    You first need to find out if your Wii is able to be soft-modded based on serial number... Google is your friend here (Softmod is a software method of "mod-chipping" your Wii)

    Look on Youtube for videos on how to Soft-mod your Wii and install a USB loader (I use CFG USB Loader but there are others)

    Quick Google and Youtube searches on what I am telling you will get you a lot more info than I can give you here in a few posts.

    Don't know. I don't have wii, but I can't think about any reason why you should not be able to.

    check first which version of the wii if it the latest version or black version you will have trouble playing back up game's
    You will need a flash card to softmod your wii you have to format the card to FAT32 before using it in a wii or else the wii wont detect it
    i dont think a 16gb flashcard will work on a wii i maybe wrong wot you need is a 2GB Scandisk card (recommended) for softmodding you wii and a lot of reading to :)
