All Wii's can be soft moded, the newest versions like the limited black Wii's will not allow you to play dvd backups beacause of the new chip on the dvd board, the only way is to play backups via USB Flash drive or USB Harddisk.

Check which drive your wii has in it here: http://www.wiidrives.com/list
If it has a D3-2 drive then your only options to play backup's are SD Card, usb stick, usb hdd or buy a replacement dvd drive that does not have a D3-2 dvd drive chip and fit it yourself.

There is a 50% chance the chipset is GC2-D3-2 (v2) with no drive chip.
And there is also a 25% chance the chipset is Combined GC2-D3 with no drive chip.
Lastly, a 25% chance the chipset is .
I got this for my wii and i am able to play DVD backups and watch DVDs.
