Hey all, I'm new to these forums and I have a question; is it possible to get data off of a bricked Wii's HDD? My Wii is dead beyond repair (unless I send it into Nintendo) and we're planning on buying a new, lower priced black Wii . The only problem with this is that we won't have any of our VC games or our saves. I'm going to be pretty mad if I have to restart my 100% complete Subspace Emissary or I'll have to collect all 120 stars in Super Mario Galaxy again.
Anyways, my idea is to take the Wii apart, remove the HDD, plug it into a drive reader and remove the data. I would then proceed to put the data onto an SD card to transfer to the new Wii.
Problems? Concerns? Please let me know before I try this.
