I need to go from "Wii with unknown WADS/etc installed" to "Wii that launches backups off WBFS or FAT formatted USB storage"

Getting backups to launch off HD is a humungous pain in the ass. WADs that won't install. Apps that don't work. A million tutorials that all say different things. I'm at the end of my rope with this stuff. I'm not a pirate, I just want to preserve my Wii's drive laser by backing up my legit games to a hard drive and playing them off it. Not long ago I did this for my PS2 (whose drive laser was starting to go) and it was easy to do and pretty straightforward to set up. I had downloaded a package with all the tools I needed and it worked like a charm.
I did the same thing for the Wii (downloaded a package that was supposed to have everything I needed) but when I get to a specific point in the included setup guide after doing the LetterBomb exploit and installing the homebrew channel - using MMM to install 43 WADS - it chokes out and installs only 3 of them. I have tried various other WADS and utilities but so far I haven't been able to launch a game backup. Please, Wii softmod experts, help me. I need to go from "Wii with unknown WADS/etc installed" to "Wii that launches backups off WBFS or FAT formatted USB storage"
