    It looks to The DD, that's why I said it doesn't need to work completely, but it does need to Show the image of the game on the Disc Channel.
    Your best bet is to get One that does work altogether.

    Make a post In the Wii buy or selling section of the forums, Maybe someone has one and is willing to part with it.

    FINAL UPDATE:

    I bought a working used DVD drive and still no luck. I turned the Wii off a couple of times while I was trying other things, and suddenly the DVD drive started spinning the disc.

    Everything works
    I tried loading from the DVD drive itself and from USB.

    Thanks a lot for your help guys. This was my first time working with a Wii, never had one before and i learned a lot. Hopefully this thread will serve the purpose of letting people know that they DO need a working DVD drive in order to load backups (even from a USB HDD)

    River Wii FTW.
