A little hacking and you can backup and run Wii games off an external hard drive. You won’t have to worry about scratching your discs and load times will be faster. I read through the directions and it seems easy enough if you follow the directions carefully. You need the HomeBrew channel installed. Visit Lifehacker for all the links on how to get it installed and also getting the HomeBrew channel installed. I haven’t done any hacking to my Wii yet but these kind of things make me want too.
