    From what I've read and been told the new Nintendo Wii's (atleast most of them) can't play backups from the DVD Drive. But you can play .iso backups just fine. If you followed the guide on this site then you should have everything you need, also being only able to install bootmii on ios is normal.

    If you want to play iso backups you need to install USB Loader GX or similar which is included in this guide

    You can replace the drive controller PCB with one purchased from a non D3-2 Wii. I'm not sure if the drive itself needs replacing or just the PCB.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
