So far I really like all the guides on this forum. I've hacked a few systems now, and am considering a wii. There is one I'm looking at, but have an important question about hacking before I purchase it.
I know that I can use a USB loader to load my games on the homebrew channel and such, but the wii I'm considering purchasing has a broken disc drive. Will this interfere at all with me installing homebrew or loading games from a USB loader?
it will make no difference to the ability to load games from USB, all the software you need to install is loaded from SD card.

Not needed-everything is on the SD card now. You can take a quick read through either the 3.1-4.1 or 4.2 softmod tutorials and compare it to your recollections:
