    adding external dvd drive to wii?

    i was wondering if anybody tried this or maybe if it will work but is it possible to add an external dvd drive to the wii because i have one of the newer wii's that doesn't play dvd's or gamecube backups but if i get a newer drive that is compatible with the games, do you think it will work?

    for one thing, i did try to search for it and another, that wasn't the info i am looking for. that is telling me that i can play wii games using an external dvd drive. i want to play dvd's and gamecube backups as well using an external dvd drive. read carefully. just because i am new to this forum doesn't make me a noob.

    I understand what you've said there but he's linked you to a post which once read would have pointed you to the fact gamecube games would NOT be read as the emulator doesn't startup the usb ports. The dvd issue I can't comment on since it's not included on that thread. The only thing you could look at is getting a WODE for your GC backups
    Remember to click the Thanks on the post if I've been helpful.
