Updating Wode System Firmware http://www.wodejukebox.com/download/WODEupdate1.20.zip
To update the Wode's system firmware download the update and copy it to an SD card formatted with the FAT filesystem. Insert the SD card into Wode and power on. Wode will then display the message "Wode Updating". The update process can take several minutes, when the update is complete Wode will reboot. The SD card can then be removed.

Here you can find version information about your Wode. Attaching Storage Devices
Wode will recognise a wide range of USB mass storage devices, Wode can also read game data from SD and SDHC cards. Wode supports a number of filesystems
NTFS & FAT partitions on the same HDD
2 WBFS partitions on the same HDDGame Files
With the exception of WBFS formatted partitions you should create a directory called "ISO" in the root of each storage device attached. Game images should be placed in the "ISO" directory.
Wode will search for the following file extensions in the "ISO" directory. Wode will also search one directory level below the "ISO" directory, this allows you to group the WBFS/ISO/BCA files together.
.ISO An image of a Wii or GC game .GCM An image of a GC game
.WBFS An image of a Wii game spread across 1 or more files in the wbfs format
.BCA A binary file containing the 64 bytes of BCA data for a Wii game
Two .wbfs filesets, one GC game and NSMB plus BCA data
Note: Wii games may be converted to .wbfs files, the disk space required to store the game is reduced and the game image can be spread across a number of files. All files in a .wbfs fileset must have the same name (with incrementing file extension)
BCA data is used by a new Nintendo copy protection scheme, this was first seen in NSMB. BCA data is not required for games that do not use this protection method and the BCA file may be safely omitted.
Legend of Zelda split into two .wbfs files
A .wbfs fileset or ISO file must have the same name as the .BCA file. If a BCA data file is not available Wode will assume the BCA data is at offset 0x100 from the start of the game image.
Since it is not possible to put a BCA data file in a WBFS partition Wode assumes all game images on WBFS partitions have the BCA data at offset 0x100 from the start of the game image (patch your ISOs before transferring them to a WBFS partition)
We have tested with, and recommend, the following game image tools:
WBFS Manager 3.0 for managing WBFS formatted partitions (http://wbfsmanager.codeplex.com/Release
Wii Backup Manager 3.1 Beta 3 for creating .wbfs filesets (http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=188295
